The Former CEO of Southwest Airlines, Howard Putnam, says: “Tony Brigmon was our ‘Ambassador of FUN’ at Southwest Airlines when I was CEO. Tony is a dynamic speaker and has a gift for blending fun and capturing ideas in a manner that stick for audiences.”

As Southwest’s “Ambassador of Fun”, Tony Brigmon helped their corporate culture recognize and reward humor and creativity in a way that got serious results. Tony became an expert at using interactive fun to teach best practices. He is an astute observer of super performing human behavior and has earned recognition nationally and internationally for his presentation, training, and consulting work, always with the aim to maximize engagement, energize transformation, and enrich individual lives.

Organizations are raving about Tony’s conference presentations. Over the last several decades, Tony has worked with over 2,000 + organizations to energize and engage cultural transformation, employee engagement, leadership, customer service and more. Today, Tony is the Founder of the Funiversity™ Learning Experience teaching others to maximize their potential. He draws on his experience as a former Southwest “insider” and his personal observations on positive high-performing individuals and organizations giving audience members practical ideas they can implement in their work and in their lives.

When he is not speaking across the country about “funtastic” culture and best practices that have made Southwest consistently rated #1 in a variety of categories over the years, you can find him in Grand Prairie, Texas taking a walk with his wife, Charlotte, or playing games on a Monday night with the rest of his family.



The 2015 Managers Seminar was the most successful ever with 331 registrants representing over 90 companies.



Born out of need and demand, the Seminar is intended to educate and motivate primarily managers and supervisors - in areas vital to being a great manager/supervisor, and dealing with employment matters. This seminar is specifically designed for all levels of managers – from the newly promoted to the senior level in sizes of organizations. In addition, individuals not yet in management can gain knowledge to become a manager. 

As in years past, the participants can choose which concurrent sessions they want or need to attend. The topics are to designed to help managers to do their jobs better and to be able to understand business, employment and human resource functions.This allows the manager to get the desired training that they need, and hopefully, allowing him/her to immediately put into place what he/she has learned at the conference. Our speakers are all knowledgeable in their topics - many are consultants, employment attorneys or specialists in their fields. Speakers are live and will not be by tele-conference, enabling you to have the opportunity to ask questions and interact with our experts. 

In 2015, 331 local managers from the West Central Arkansas area including Hot Springs, Malvern, Arkadelphia, Hot Springs Village, Benton, Bryant, Little Rock and Glenwood attended this award winning event. In 12 years, we have served over 400 companies.
