2018 Annual Conference

July 11-13, 2018 | Fort Lauderdale Marriott Harbor Beach Resort & Spa

 

 

Keynote Speakers Announced

We are pleased to announce our 2018 Annual Conference Keynote Speakers:

Opening Keynote: Unconscious Bias in Leadership Decision Making

Speaker: Dr. Shirley Davis, CSP

Everyone has unconscious biases.They are a natural function of the human brain. Biases can have a negative impact on team performance and collaboration, decision making and problem solving. This session is designed to move participants from unconscious to conscious–in a no shame and no blame approach. Learn the importance of building cultural competence and the practices every leader can develop to move from minimization to acceptance and full adaptation of valuing differences. 

 

General Session: How to Work a Room so it Works for You!  

Speaker: Annetta Wilson

Networking is NOT a race to collect the most business cards. It is NOT the time to SELL anything. Do it wrong and it could cost you contacts and business! In this highly interactive session you’ll discover easy ways to escape the person who monopolizes your time, an unusual ‘mindset’ change that gets rid of nerves and why you should NEVER ask, ‘What do you do?’

 

 

Closing Keynote: The Epic Advantage - How to Get What You Want Without Losing What You Love

Speaker: Jerome Wade, CSP

Life is filled with endless deadlines, unreasonable demands and all-consuming dilemmas. For many, the pursuit of success and the drive to achieve can lead you to perform at an unsustainable pace - putting at risk the very things you love. But it doesn’t have to be that way. Stay at the top of your game while beating burn out and conquering fatigue. 

Learn the hidden causes of leadership fatigue and refuel your personal and professional passions.
