Primary Presenter

Sharon Fisher, Play with a Purpose
Job Title

CEO / IdeaSparker


Sharon Fisher is a professional “experience-maker.”  When all her friends were getting real degrees, she chose to major in “whistle blowing” as her father called her degree in Recreation.  Now celebrating 20 years in her business, Play with a Purpose runs hundreds of events a year.   Chosen as one of Entrepreneur Magazines Young Millionaires, she has proven that the passion for play works. 


Her quote “In a world full of copies, here’s to the ORIGINALS!” summarizes her business style. Sharon’s reputation for leading the industry in creating teambuilding, community service, and icebreaker events has led to 20 years in business.   Now the next evolution is putting play on the broader meeting platform – gamifying meetings, making them more engaging and relevant, and adding experiential learning programs to bring learning alive.  She also helps organizations “think different” about their business with Quirkshops and Idea Explorations into customer service, creating engaging experiences, process improvement, and improving employee morale.   


In addition to being the preferred vendor for Walt Disney World Co., her clients include Chevrolet,CampJeep, BBDO, Disney Publishing, Cadbury Schweppes, CUNA Mutual, American Express, Frito Lay,CarMax,USAir Force, IBM, McDonalds and the North Carolina Sweet Potato Commission.  Her highly energetic style consistently delights audiences and makes learning fun. 

Your Presentation Experience in this Area

Creating new methods of engagement and events is my core love - I absolutely adore coming up with new ideas, and more importantly, sharing tools with others to help them come up with new ideas. I have been off the speaker circuit for a few years, but my most recent presentation was at the Innovators Forum at BizBash. Prior to that I was an MPI Platinum Speaker, and have keynoted the MPI Institutes program as well as spoken at numerous Chapters. I also speak at numerous regional and state association meetings, as well as for private companies.
