Wowing audiences from some of the most recognized companies and organization such as Kraft Foods, Bayer, YMCA and the U.S. Bankruptcy Court, Roddy is quickly building a far-flung reputation for helping leaders, teams, organizations and individuals realize their potential to consistently produce encore performances beyond the stage.

In each keynote, Roddy shares a portion of his life story, and the insights he has learned from training and performing in arenas around the world. This includes working alongside and successfully negotiating with hundreds of managers, musicians, and various personalities in the performing-arts industry. He share the wisdom gleaned from prominent dignitaries he has met along the way and reveals performance solutions developed in the crucible of thousands of stages in front of live audiences. Plus, he talks about what he has learned about himself and the people around him — those who have succeeded, and those who have failed.

Lead Instinct Your Lead

In a world where policy, procedure, and sheet music dictate performance, our ability to live outside of others’ expectations is diminished. Roddy shows audiences how to tap into their innate leadership instincts and rise to their own potential.


  • Audience members will learn the art of rule-surpassing instead of breaking.
  • Participants will learn the science and history of “the gut feeling.”
  • Members will also learn how to be open to experience influences beyond the norm, leading to new effectiveness in work and life.
The Scrappy Factor

Roddy introduces audiences to a phenomenon that is necessary to achieve goals on any stage — in offices and industries each and every day. Truth is, scrappy people, teams, and companies accomplish more and are more effective. Roddy explains how to implement The Scrappy Factor as part of our fundamental foundation.


  • Audience members will learn the definition of “scrappy” and how to apply it in their current role to achieve success. Inspiring case studies of “scrappiness” will also be revealed.
  • Participants will learn how to work with more agility by eliminating over-thinking and self-imposed interruptions.
  • Members will also learn how scrappy times of productivity are when one’s best work is accomplished, according to Parkinson’s Law.
Comfort In The Uncomfortable

Many motivators have challenged audiences to move toward the uncomfortable in life. Roddy takes this concept a step farther — telling his audiences how to find comfort and innovate within the uncomfortable. This keynote shatters stale perceptions of potential, reality, and purpose. It gives audience members instant action items that they can take back to the workplace.


  • Audience members will learn to define their foundational goal in any endeavor—and how that foundational goal is actually achieved in the uncomfortable places in life and work.
  • Participants will learn that discipline is not only for our children, but if we are truly disciplined, then our children will become more disciplined also.
  • Members will also learn how correcting course from a failure is necessary to navigating the future more accurately.
The Rockstar Performance

There are specific reasons that rock stars become well-known brands. They become household names by being more than simply talented individuals. Roddy has spent years touring alongside some of the biggest rock stars and shares the secrets to performing effectively on some of the largest stages in the world — and how you can use those secrets in your everyday life.


  • Audience members will learn the performance motto, “Be seen and be good.”
  • Participants will learn how the two handrails of specificity and clarity lead to a rock star performance.
  • Members will also learn what rock stars do when waiting in the wings just before a performance, when a “mistake” happens during a performance, and how they conclude a performance with distinction.
For Leaders and Managers

The attitudes, perspectives, and management styles of your leadership have a tremendous impact on your organization’s ability to create “standing-ovation performances.”

Roddy not only has the passion to motivate your leadership team, but he also has the personal experience — performing alongside many of the world’s most respected leaders in the performing-arts industry — to reveal the attitudes, perspectives, and techniques of greatness.

Roddy will show your leadership team how to:

• Define and read their audience.

• Conduct an orchestra: rhythm, melody and harmony in the workplace.

• Spot instinct performers and motivate sheet music performers.

For Teams

Energy, inspiration, engagement, and aptitude are crucial to stellar performance. Choosing the right speaker can be difficult, but it doesn’t have to be. Basically, there are two options:

1. Choose a speaker to tell your employees how to perform. Or, 2. Choose a speaker who can show them how to perform — because they’ve done it.

Roddy Chong understands the vast difference between performing on demand and performing because it’s an opportunity to execute brilliantly. He empowers and motivates team members to take charge of their attitudes toward work and career — understanding that work isn’t always desirable, but an outstanding performance is always expected and rewarded.

Roddy will show your teams how to:

• Seize responsibility for their attitude.

• Perform as a band or orchestra instead of as a soloist.

• Let their instinct lead.

• Understand the payoff of discipline.

Roddy is a difference-maker on any stage. — Kevin Costner
