They perform skits, including, “The Conference Call,” where they have trouble understanding an IT professional over the phone. They act out a modern conversation where both of them are glued to their mobile devices instead of talking to one another. They illustrate teamwork by bringing audience members onto the stage to provide “sound effects” while they act out different activities.

Comments from the staff included ‘no one ever stays for the breakfast and The O′Sheas kept us in the room and engaged.’ Some members of the Aims audience had tears flowing as they giggled uncontrollably while watching The O′Sheas work the room with their fellow co-workers. It was clear to everyone in the room that their humor and insight into the organization was right on target, resulting in a standing ovation at the end of their presentation. Tim and Kris have contributed to the beginning of a positive cultural transformation at Aims.”
