Facebook Live Event #1: J Jeff Kober Introduction

Thanks for joining me for my first Disney at Work Facebook Live Event. Just like Walt Disney would introduce his TV show from his office (albeit it was a re-creation on a soundstage), I wanted to use this first event to introduce or re-introduce myself. And I thought the best place to do it was from my office.

Here’s the link to the show itself:

During the event, I highlighted some events in my life. Of course, a picture is worth a thousand words, and I thought they would help in better introducing me. So here’s some photos:

I’d be remiss if I didn’t share my favorite Disney map with you. It’s a map that was designed to showcase what was being envisioned for the Walt Disney World property at the time of its opening. It hung in rooms at Disney’s Contemporary Resort. It reminds me that heritage matters, and friends matter.

Stay tuned in the next days to come as I will be featuring my first podcast, with moderator, David Zanolla, plus some additional cool things that we’ll have for you that we hope to announce soon. You can also visit my blogs not only on this site, but PerformanceJourneys.com and WorldClassBenchmarking.com.

And in future Disney at Work Facebook Live episodes, I assure you that we’ll take advantage of the Facebook Live by being out in the parks–not just the Walt Disney World resort, but also Disney parks, resorts and attractions across the world. It should be fun, so please join us.

Thanks!
