The Smile & Move Video
Written and directed by Sam Parker.
Wonderful for opening or closing your meeting or event, the 'Smovie' can stand on its own as an inspiring introduction to a meaningful discussion or add value to any other theme or topics you might be addressing.
Written and directed by Sam Parker (author of Smile & Move) this video is a high-energy, high-resolution production that runs just over 3 minutes. It includes a Leader's Guide written by Sam on how to introduce the video to a group. If you deepen the experience with the Smile & Move Video Discussion Package, you'll get an expanded and detailed Leader's Guide that can help you introduce and discuss the material in a much bigger way.

Smile & Move® is a fresh and easily embraceable message that's helped thousands of people and organizations inspire and encourage people at all levels to be more positive and service-oriented in their customer and work relationships. And it sticks.
It's perfect for customer service training. (Shouldn't customer service be a part of everyone's work?)
It's simple enough to kick-off or support an upcoming meeting, project, or event and deep enough to stand on its own as a theme or team building message. You might even find it helpful as an on-boarding tool or as a first-read for new hires to set expectations for wonderful service levels and accountability ("In everything we do, we Smile & Move. We're Smovers here.").
Introduce. Discuss. Remind. Encourage.™
This is how you help everyone be more engaged, motivated, and responsible to their work and the people around them (their customers, their colleagues). Sharing the Smile & Move message can help by giving you a new way to illustrate what's important (attitude & meaningful action).
You might start by handing out the bestselling book (a quick 20-minute read which means people will really read it) and then discuss it as a group. Then keep the message alive by handing out and/or posting the fun reinforcement items (banners, posters, reminder cards, mugs, t-shirts, wristbands, etc.). You can even use the items as Smile & Move awards to recognize the true 'Smovers' in your organization. If you'd like to go deeper with it (and create a 'Smovement' of your own), maybe one of our meeting packages would be the best fit for you. These include the inspiring video and/or a PowerPoint® formatted presentation with a Leader's Guide (written by Sam, the author of Smile & Move) to help you deliver and discuss the material.
