2019 Featured Speakers

Thom Singer

Thursday, August 8: Annual Business Meeting for Association during the General Session starts at 8:45am and Keynote Presentation 9:00 am-10:15 am

Give, Gain, Grow

The quest for more productivity pushes everyone to increasingly use digital and social media tools to interact with others, but are we really better connected? While social media tools are great, it can remove the personal side of a relationship. There are more to people than likes, links, shares, and follows. People want to matter. When you pay attention to others, that is the greatest gift you can give them. Those who give their time and attention will uncover more success.

John Kennedy

Friday, August 9: Keynote Presentation 9:00 am-10:15 am


There are four levels of leadership and John Kennedy will address each of these with a dynamic and thoughtful approach to being not just good and leadership but great at leadership. From the need to balance tactical and strategic thinking and problem solving to the three human needs all employees’ desire, John will build your leadership toolbox to last!
