Communication Bleeps & Blunders in Business

Speaker: Todd Hunt


You said one thing; your customer, client, candidate or coworker heard something else. Nobody was wrong, but now everybody’s confused…and you have to deal with it! Laugh and learn as Todd Hunt shares valuable lessons wrapped in humor, demonstrating how HR professionals and business-people can communicate better and become more successful.

  • Tune in to where your listener is “coming from,” and tailor your communication style to get what you need.
  • Discover the eight problem words that could cause you to lose valued employees or customers.
  • Re-think your voice mail greeting to eliminate confusion and save time.

If you eat M&Ms in color order, alphabetize your cereal boxes or rearrange the dishwasher (or know someone who does), you’ll appreciate Todd’s take on business and life. And there’s no PowerPoint! Just soak up tips for how to communicate so clearly that we’re understood, and so precisely that we cannot possibly be MISunderstood…no matter who’s doing the listening!

Speaker Bio:

Funnier than a business speaker; more informative than a comedian, Todd Hunt’s communication lessons wrapped in humor have entertained and inspired audiences at leadership and HR events across the country.

He’s received stellar reviews at four state SHRM conferences, two dozen HR seminars and the inaugural HR Conference Cruise in 2017 (he’ll be back on the 2020 cruise in February).

As an executive at Ogilvy & Mather, one of the world’s largest advertising agencies, Todd learned the inner workings of communication. Additional positions with an insurance administrator, direct marketing company and a major retailer confirmed what he had suspected all along -- people miscommunicate every day!

In 1991, he started his own business, The Hunt Company, a marketing agency in Chicago. One day he discovered that people were eager to hear his funny, true examples of sales, customer service, leadership and change, which he gathered during his years in business. Now a professional speaker, he inspires thousands of people each year to improve communication and success.

Todd is the author of two books: Communication Bleeps and Blunders in Business and Pardon Me, But That’s a Really Stupid Sign! He has been profiled in the Chicago Tribune, WGN Radio and CLTV. His newspaper column appears in the United States and Canada. Visit him at
