Yes, believe it or not, 80s pop culture and particularly the great movies that defined the decade can teach us lessons for our workplace, our business, our careers and our lives. For example:

  • Learn what The Goonies teaches us about inclusion.
  • Hear what Ferris Bueller teaches us about work-life balance.
  • Find out how the four kids in Stand by Me taught us that there really are no stupid questions.
  • See how Axel Foley from Beverly Hills Cop taught us how your best resource is you.
  • Find out how The Outsiders taught us that it’s never too late to “create you”

And more lessons from a wide variety of 80s movies.  Chris can customize the lessons to your needs or theme and include movies that fit your business, workplace, conference or event.

Chris Clews is a speaker and author of the book "What 80s Pop Culture Teaches Us About Today’s Workplace" which is the first of an upcoming series. He grew up in Reisterstown, MD and is the quintessential child of the 80s. He has a closet full of 80s movie T-shirts and a house full of 80s movie artwork so you could say he has a passion for all things 80s. A graduate of Elon University in North Carolina, he has over 22 years of marketing experience building brands, leading brands through transition and spearheading sports sponsorships with NCAA Basketball, PGA, MLB, International Soccer and the UFC.

He’s also passionate about animal rescue and donates a portion of the proceeds from his book and speaking engagements to the SPCA International and lives by the quote from the poet laureate Ferris Bueller, “Life moves pretty fast. If you don’t stop to look around once in a while, you could miss it.”
