Keynote & Concurrent Track Speakers

During this conference participants will be both challenged and inspired to sharpen their skills, interact with others, and leave this event energized and eager to share their new learnings. Being a part of  this event will give participants a greater influence and opportunities to make a positive impact on their community, career, and home.

There will be 3 keynote sessions throughout both days of the event, along with 3 concurrent breakout tracks that will focus on leading with your strengths, leading at every age and place, and leading to leverage diversity and inclusion.

The leading with your strengths track focuses on helping participants to identify and leverage their individual strengths to achieve their full potential. The sessions in the leading at every age and place track demonstrate that regardless of age, ethnicity, or profession, all leaders have had to overcome challenges and obstacles to achieve success.

To better understand how to lead to leverage diversity and inclusion, speakers will provide ideas which will help leaders recognize, address, and leverage the unique differences of team members in order to better accomplish the mission and goals of the organizations for which they have been tapped to lead.
