Keynote, sponsored by Landscape Structures, inspires increased productivity and creativity.

Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, along with its Nebraska playground consultant, Outdoor Recreation Products, will exhibit at the 2013 Nebraska Recreation & Park Association (NeRPA) Annual Educational Institute Sept. 16-18, in South Sioux City. The conference will feature Walter Stasinski, a nationally known speaker with master’s degrees in education and public health, as the keynote speaker. This learning experience was made possible through the 2013-2014 State Association Speaker Scholarship program from Landscape Structures.

Stasinski’s keynote topic will focus on the power of fun at work. Session attendees will receive practical tools to reduce stress, re-energize, defuse conflict and make work more fun. According to Stasinski, individuals can achieve success and have fun doing it. As a bonus, he’ll discuss how humor will help with productivity and creativity.

As a son of hard-working Polish immigrants who came to the U.S. with not much more than the clothes on their back, Stasinski began his “speaking” career as a teacher and football coach at Wayne State University. It was there where he learned to motivate and inspire. He also learned that people absorb more when they're having fun, so he uses humor to get the message across to his audience.

Stasinski will present his keynote address at 7 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 16. Prior to the welcome and keynote speaker, attendees of the Educational Institute will have the opportunity to visit Outdoor Recreation Products and Landscape Structures in the exhibit hall to learn about the latest trends in playground design including custom and theme designs.
