Edutainment

By seamlessly mixing his passion for music and social phenomenon, Jurgis proves that an artist can do much more than simply entertain; he can transform, inspire and enlighten.

Music is nice. Music with a powerful message, captivating storytelling, and comedy, as well as Q&A – is much nicer. Jurgis Didžiulis is a social-impact performer, but he’s also a seasoned public speaker. He enjoys combining his skills to educate people on social phenomenon; expand their understanding of emotional intelligence, and demonstrate the power of authentic values, earnest engagement, community, social capital, emotional-conscientiousness, and FUN!

Jurgis transcends the limits of format and genre through enlightening dialogue and stimulating interaction that can feel like a musical stand-up comedy at one moment and a life-changing inspirational talk the next. This mix illustrates and provokes in ways that words alone cannot. More importantly, it can immediately change the emotional climate of a situation, and help groups of people (re)establish an honest emotional connection.

His education in political science and business administration allows Jurgis to establish a rapport with scholarly audiences and rigorously business-minded individuals alike. His extensive experience on-stage allows him to tailor messages and adapt to different people and circumstances, as well as effortlessly improvise during unforeseen situations.

Since 2015, Jurgis has done over 200 interactive musical “Edu-Tainment” sessions for businesses, NGO’s, educational establishments, and conferences. He feels equally comfortable inspiring, entertaining and enlightening anyone from kindergarten kids to hardcore academics, anywhere from cozy boardrooms to thousand-person auditoriums.

VALUES FOR VALUE:

”An entertaining musical seminar that offers a fresh and useful perspective on the power and possibilities of purposefully applied values.”

Values are more than something to go with your company’s mission statement. They are emotional DNA that can be harnessed for meaningful change and a competitive advantage. “Social” is much more than a liability, responsibility or obligation. It is a potential resource that is often underestimated and overlooked. Values in the form of personal beliefs and convictions are the key to understanding this latent cache within each organisation. If invoked sincerely, they can be tapped to improve employee engagement, spark positive change, and explore meaningful social initiatives amongst other things. You can read more on VALUES FOR VALUE seminar HERE. Download PDF HERE.
