This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. The language of Play is a language that we all spoke fluently in childhood. By the time we become adults, most of us have forgotten the language of play. Matt uses play and joy to open people up, allowing them to be creative and impactful - even in places one might expect play to be the last thing on a person's mind. His analogy is that we should be so lucky as to work like our dogs. Enjoy this creative fun-filled romp through airports, dog parks and even prison. Matt is the Founder and “Emperor” of Playfair, Inc., and one of the nation’s foremost authorities on the use of fun and humor in team building. A member of the Professional Speaker’s Hall of Fame, Matt was named one of the “21 Top Speakers for the 21st Century” by 'Successful Meetings' magazine. A prolific author, Matt's most recent titles include 'Managing To Have Fun', 'Gently Down The Stream', 'Work Like Your Dog', and 'Dog's Don't Bite When A Growl Will Do'. Matt also created the television special "Fun Works!: The Power of Humor in the Workplace" for PBS television. About TEDx, x = independently organized event In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)
