Comedy is in our DNA and Boom Chicago puts humor at the heart of everything we do. And yes that’s how you spell humor now. Sorry Brexit.

For 25 years, Boom for Business has applied our comedy in the corporate world. We use comedy to create content, support messages and to make people laugh. We also have a sense of humor about ourselves.

Comedy, however, is quite serious, and it is a secret weapon for communication. It opens closed mental doors and lets new information and ideas slip through. Too many companies and events focus only on their message and not if it arrives. Comedy makes your message stick. Every event could be both more fun and more effective.  Boom Chicago has been a trusted partner with large and small organizations over the past 25 years. We would like to list the companies we have worked with, but that would be 1000 logos.

Are you one of the few companies we’ve never worked for? Let’s fix that. Are you a repeat customer? Welcome back!

Our Vision 2020 Program

Look towards the future of your organization. Where are you now? Where are you going? And what do you need to get there? The roadmap to success might be constantly changing, but the skills are clear: Innovation, collaboration, risk taking, and good communication are important in every layer of the company. Leadership should be a spirit that runs through your entire organization. Our new presentation-workshop gets people on their feet and out of their comfort zone for a fun and interactive program tailored for your organization.

Customer Experience Programs

Your people are the experience. And they can either add meaning, relevance and deliver consistently memorable experiences. Or you will become a commodity. There’s not much in between. After having studied many companies that excel at customer experience, we have learned that they all employ individuals who are Surprising, Touching, Assisting and Recognizing their customers. That is the basis of our front line staff training program STARS, just one of our customer experience programs. Read more.
