To win in business today, it’s no longer sufficient to be faster or better at what you’re already doing. The most successful companies are adept at navigating change. Effective leaders create companies where every employee has clarity about where they are going and why. Employees don’t typically like change. Great leaders see what is possible when others do not. They are willing to disrupt their companies, even when it’s unpopular or difficult. Discover game-changing strategies that every employee understands, and is excited to execute.
Our keynote speaker, Gerry O’Brion, is a nationally recognized marketing and branding expert who has worked on several billion dollar brands and distilled that experience into growth strategies you can implement immediately, regardless of your budget.
