Saturday Night Leaders: How to Solve the Problems Keeping You Up Until 3AM

December 9, 2021, 2:00 - 3:00 PM


You have 7 days to create a project from scratch with a team of dozens, plus impossible deadlines, millions at stake, a changing industry, and challenges with team members, To top it off, jobs are on the line if the show’s not a hit with the audience.

Jamie Mason Cohen once worked in corporate entertainment for Lorne Michaels, the executive producer of Saturday Night Live. He applies sure-proof lessons and skills learned and inspired by the longest running show in US media history to the corporate world, and shows teams how they can adjust and thrive in a VUCA (volatile, uncertain, complex, and ambiguous) world.

Structuring the in-depth interactive, high-content, practical, and humorous deep-dive keynote into seven parts, Cohen will get your audience thinking on their feet about how to solve the priority problems that are keeping them up until 3 AM.

Each part of the experience represents a day of the week and a tangible step towards closing the gap between where they currently are and where they want to be.

Key takeaways:

  • How to work effectively, calmly, and efficiently under pressure in any business crisis.
  • Giving and receiving feedback that helps the team win without anyone feeling like they’re losing.
  • Improvising innovative solutions under tight deadlines.
  • How to adopt a ‘Saturday Night’ mindset to adjust and manage uncertain and changing contexts

At the end of this keynote, your team will be energized, equipped and ready to yell: LIVE FROM YOUR WORK, IT’S SATURDAY NIGHT!
