KEYNOTE » Cross the Bridge to Higher Performance

Businesses set metrics to track performance. But at the end of the year, we find our goals interrupted by unexpected events. Three systems must be present in order for your company to drive high performance and impact. Most organizations only focus on one. 

Listeners will learn the three systems that drive performance and impact, why all three need the other two to thrive, and gain inspiration to create a shift toward  impact and growth.

WORKSHOP» How to Solve Impossible Problems

Impact work is rewarding, but it requires resilience. Complex social problems can be overwhelming, but engagement can differentiate your organization.

Listeners will understand the three key mindsets to overcoming barriers, how to integrate social good into the organization’s business model, and how to connect with the target audience.

WORKSHOP» The Hero’s Journey

Discovering Your Story’s Purpose

We know stories connect with people. Your own personal story also impacts your management style, and your company story impacts its growth potential, and ability to authentically communicate impact.

Listeners will gain an understanding of how stories drive decisions and create change, understand how to identify and communicate values, learn to utilize values to drive organizational growth, and learn leadership tools to build a genuinely inclusive culture.

WORKSHOP » Authentic Leadership

What it Looks Like and Why it Matters

Authenticity is integral to leadership because it creates an environment of trust in which people can thrive. But sometimes it can feel difficult to define. It doesn’t have to be. 

Listeners will understand the three keys to authenticity, how to confidently integrate them into personal and professional decision making, and what benefits building an authentic environment brings.



“Just wanted to say thanks so much for presenting at the conference this week! The support is so much appreciated – and your presentation came up a ton on day two. It was a homerun for sure. Probably the most-cited thing when we asked attendees what they’re going to take back with them from the conference. So kudos to you!”
