Keynote Speakers Announced

We are pleased to announce our 2019 Annual Conference Keynote Speakers:

Opening Keynote Session: Because I Said I Would

Alex Sheen

Speaker: Alex Sheen

We live in a society that often does not respect the importance of a promise. It is too easy to say "I'll get to it" or "tomorrow." In many ways we have become numb to broken commitments and disappointment. Alex Sheen inspires others to become more accountable to our promises through compelling and real-life examples from the because I said I would movement. Integrity and keeping your promises are interwoven, and holding ourselves and each other accountable can truly change humanity for the better.


Powered Productivity: Tech Tools You Need to Get Stuff Done

Beth Z - Your Nerdy Best FriendSpeaker: Beth Ziesenis, Your Nerdy Best Friend

You love being a leader at work, but keeping on top of everything is exhausting! The right technology can give you back your time and your sanity... you just need a Nerdy Best Friend to share the perfect tools. Join Author Beth Z, Your Nerdy Best Friend, for a fast-moving, laugh-filled session chock full of technology tools and apps that you can start using immediately to help you save time, stay safe online, avoid email overload / inbox implosions, and increase your efficiency and amaze your colleagues.


Closing Keynote: Meeting Your Challenges to Be Your Best 

Dave CareySpeaker: Dave Carey

Success comes not so much as a result of overcoming adversity, but as a result of using that adversity creatively.  Motivational speaker drawing from his experiences as a POW, Captain Dave Carey brings a positive and up-beat message about being your best—doing your best. There is power stored within each of us that adversity can help unlock, and Dave's profound, motivating ideas help you learn to face hard choices - successfully.
