Tony worked with Herb Kelleher at SWA to create a positive culture that rewarded humor and creativity in a way that resulting in great customer service, legendary productivity and profitability. Back by popular demand Tony will give us an update on the culture movement.
The Former CEO of Southwest Airlines, Howard Putnam, says: “Tony Brigmon was our ‘Ambassador of FUN’ at Southwest Airlines when I was CEO. Tony is a dynamic speaker and has a gift for blending fun and capturing ideas in a manner that stick for audiences.”
As Southwest’s Former “Ambassador of Fun”, Tony Brigmon helped their corporate culture recognize and reward humor and creativity in a way that got serious results. Tony became an expert at using interactive fun to teach best practices. He is an astute observer of super performing human behavior and has earned recognition nationally and internationally for his presentation, training, and consulting work, always with the aim to maximize engagement, energize transformation, and enrich individual lives.
Organizations are raving about Tony’s conference presentations. Over the last several decades, Tony has worked with over 2,000 + organizations to energize and engage cultural transformation, employee engagement, leadership, customer service and more. Today, Tony draws on his experience as a former Southwest “insider” and his personal observations on positive high-performing individuals and organizations giving audience members practical ideas they can implement in their work and in their lives.
When he is not speaking across the country about “Funomenal” culture or best practices that have made Southwest consistently top rated in a variety of categories over the years, you can find him in Grand Prairie, Texas watching mystery movies with his wife Charlotte or having fun with family (six children and 21 grandchildren) and friends.
