Mark’s biggest “Ah-ha” moment came while traveling to an engagement. It was there that he stumbled upon the Harley-Davidson Motorcycle Company’s 100th year anniversary celebration. He kept overhearing people as they passed bikers and shared two simple words, “Nice Bike”.
A connection was made. It gave Mark an unforgettable metaphor that inspired him to write his award-winning book, Nice Bike: Making Meaningful Connections on the Road of Life.
More than a passing compliment, Nice Bike is a powerful, memorable metaphor that acts as a catalyst to help build stronger connections and more effective teams. The Nice Bike principle helps individuals to become more engaged and passionate about serving others.

SPEECH TITLE AND DESCRIPTION
Nice Bike: Making Connections That Move People
Mark Scharenbroich’s “Nice Bike” principle is all about acknowledging, honoring, and making connections that move people. According to the Gallup Management Q12 research, just 28% of employees are fully engaged in their organization, which a whopping 71% of the workforce is underperforming or actively undermining their work. However, organizations that focus on employee engagement improve productivity, develop higher levels of customer engagement, increase retention of their best employees, and improve profitability.
Using the Nice Bike concept (which involves half-a-million Harley-Davidson bikers, lots of black leather jackets, one beige rental car, and the sincere recognition of what’s really important), Scharenbroich helps his audiences instill greater passion in their work and feel a profound connection to what they do. This presentation is a guaranteed catalyst for a stronger, more unified team.
