    HRCI Credits:   SHRM and HRCI credit(s)

    Summary:  Geoffrey Scheer, Managing Director of the training firm Access Communications, will demonstrate his company’s theater-based training technique, focusing on the topics of diversity and workplace harassment. Three SHRM chapter members will be selected in advance to perform several brief scenes with Geoffrey depicting situations of discrimination and harassment. The audience will then be invited to suggest ways the various situations can best be handled, and alternative behaviors will be demonstrated and evaluated. Each scenario is followed by guided audience discussion to underscore the lessons learned and offer insight into alternative methods of employee training. The program is presented with drama, humor and good taste to keep the audience engaged and focused throughout the presentation.

     Speaker Bio:  Geoffrey Scheer began his training career with Access Communications in 2004, playing the role of “George” in training seminars conducted across the country for such clients as AIG, HSBC, Merrill Lynch and many others. Prior to becoming Managing Director, Geoffrey enjoyed a successful career in the performing arts as an actor, director, playwright and producer. He was the founder and Artistic Director of the New York-based theater company Write Club NYC and Company Manager for The Water Coolers, an award winning comedy troupe that specializes in providing customized entertainment for large-scale corporate events.
