Talented Performers Infuse Creativity to Professionals Through Shows and Workshops


With corporate videos we get the best results when we use the professional vocabulary of the people we interview. IES will use this experience and create workshops that are relevant for specific industries.

Intelligent Entertainment Solutions, (IES) a company that brings the creative into the corporate world, today announced their official launch. IES has sourced the most creative, intelligent, and diverse talent from around the country to teach professionals how to use their “right-brain” creativity, to build better client relationships and sell more effectively. The IES team includes performers who have appeared on national television shows, such as Sex and the City, received Emmy nominations and artists with art in major collections around the world. IES infuses creativity through workshops, story-telling, stand-up and comedy training.

Creative thinking, performing and artistry are talents that can be learned and honed. In a corporate environment, creative skills give professionals a competitive advantage to solve problems, market their skills, improve teamwork, client relations and productivity. In Daniel Pink’s book, A Whole New Mind, Pink gives examples of CEOs at major corporations, like Unilever, U.K., who employ painters and comic book creators to inspire their staff. Another example can be seen with General Motors who focused on the “art, entertainment and mobile sculpture” part of the transportation business to help turn the company around.

IES has a growing pool of talented performers and consultants who perform and teach executives, like lawyers, accountants and other professional service executives, how to be more creative with selling techniques, solving problems or managing client and internal relationships. Each performance or workshop is tailored to the specific audience and their respective professionals. A team, or an individual, can be hired for client events, management retreats, recruitment, Women’s or diversity events and practice area workshops.

Linda Orton, founder of IES, is also a serial entrepreneur and the founder of Intelligent Video Solutions, a company that produces corporate videos. Linda states, “With corporate videos we get the best results when we use the professional vocabulary of the people we interview. IES will use this experience and create workshops that are relevant for specific industries. We have worked and consulted for leading firms, like Clifford Chance and Bernstein Wealth Management, so we understand the professional mindset.”
The IES recipe is to educate and entertain through a show, and then offer a workshop, where employees can deconstruct that which makes humor funny, stories compelling and art memorable. IES can teach the communication skills such as humor or story-telling to allow the professionals to learn new techniques to help sell, motivate or develop better relationships.
