Empathy is one of our most powerful approaches, tools, and connections. For our 17th Concert & Perspectives session, we will be combining Broadway performers and Learning Business Leaders in an uplifting one-hour focus on Empathy.

We are honored to feature these amazing Broadway, Television, and Movie Performers:

  • Michael Longoria (Jersey Boys, Hairspray, The View Upstairs): Michael is best known for his star turn as Frankie Valli in Jersey Boys on Broadway, for his role in Hairspray, and as one of The Midtown Men, which Elliott featured at his learning conferences for several years.
  • Liz Callaway: Liz is best known for having provided the singing voices of many female characters in animated films, such Anastasia, Aladdin, The Lion King II, and Beauty and the Beast. And, Liz Callaway and her sister sang the theme song for the Fran Drescher comedy series The Nanny.
  • Melinda Doolittle (American Idol & National Tours)
  • Telly Leung (Aladdin, Glee, Rent, and Empathy Co-Host)
  • Elliott Masie (Learning Innovator and Empathy Co-Host) 

In addition, we will feature learning leaders’ perspectives on Empathy in these changing times.

This is the 17th Empathy Concert Hour that we have produced since the beginning of the pandemic. We have addressed the issues of “work from home”, economic disruption, and racial injustice. We have honored teachers and explored the intersection of humor and empathy. EMPATHY is essential to our employees, our organizations, and to our families and children in these uncertain times.

Please take one hour and be part of a unique, high-energy program. We have a limit of 3,000 live spaces on this free video session.
