When the credits roll and you’ve left the park, when your Disney day is over, how do you take the magic with you into your everyday work and life?
Jody Jean Dreyer worked for the Walt Disney Company for 30 years, and in Beyond the Castle she shares one-of-a-kind stories and insights into what sets the Disney experience apart as well as secrets to help listeners discover their own happily ever afters.
Beginning with her first position as a summer intern at Walt Disney World, through her role leading synergy and special projects for Disney (reporting to former CEO Michael Eisner), to her work with top leadership at Walt Disney Motion Pictures sharing the magic of Disney films around the world, Jody unpacks secrets that can change the way we understand ourselves, our work, and our relationships and how we can find our own paths to happiness. You will hear her stories about working with Walt’s nephew, Roy E. Disney, about her front-line role in the opening of theme parks around the world, and about her own journey to discovering how to bring some Disney magic into every day.
The wish for happy endings is written in our hearts. Every park guest or movie watcher is looking for their own happily ever after as they ask the questions: What’s my story? Does it matter? Will the story end well for me? Jody’s personal experiences and her underpinning faith help her to offer practical and sometimes unexpected principles to better appreciate and navigate our own stories.
Jody’s entertaining storytelling will satisfy a listener’s desire to open the doors and peek inside the castle – and, more, to unlock and illuminate life’s true treasure.
