Presentation Topics

Communicate, Collaborate and Create the Future

This “must see” program will allow you to leave the event with the tools to put ideas into action.  Changing times require a new way of thinking and leading that allows organizations and individuals to build relationships across sectors and move beyond the status quo.  In order to handle the toughest problems and help your customers be successful, it requires bringing together the right people to seek innovative solutions.  Never before has there been a greater need to communicate effectively, collaborate more deliberately and execute by putting your ideas into action.

This fun and interactive keynote will leave you energized and prepared to not only participate in the future… but to CREATE IT!

Hold that Thought! 

Creating Opportunities out of Challenges through Creativity and Innovation

The latest research reveals a global creativity gap in five of the world’s largest economies.  The research shows 8 in 10 people feel unlocking creativity is critical to economic growth, however only 1 in 4 people believe they are living up to their own creative potential.  Creativity is a core competency for leaders in order to challenge the assumptions that lead to stagnation in business.

In this session you will learn how to cultivate creativity that leads to innovation and breakthrough thinking.  Find new ways to see opportunities that others do not see and create an environment that allows curiosity and the ability to connect the dots as a tool that gives you the competitive edge.  If you want to learn to discover opportunity in uncertainty and change then this is the program for you!

Building Leaders at All Levels

This program will help you tap into your unique talents as a leader as well as help to build a culture of accountability and positive workforce engagement.  By building leaders at all levels, every employee is viewed as a vital contributor toward the mission, vision and strategic goals.

Learn to create an environment where the exchange of ideas and leadership occurs at all levels. Build on the individual strengths and the strengths of the team in order to find new ways to add value and impact customer outcomes.

Entrepreneurial Thinking® for Leaders 

This program is not for the faint of heart.  If you are a business owner you already understand the concept.  If you are a leader within a company you need to be willing to allow your team to think with an entrepreneurial vision within your organization.  The ability to learn from other industries, maximize your talents, seek out new opportunities and be ready to turn on a dime is the hallmark of this presentation.

This program is the celebration of the unique talents of everyone in your organization and how you can be bigger and better by combining your talents to grow and prosper.
