Conference Organizer

Over the past 20 years, I’ve spent thousands of hours, one-on-one, with more than 400 leaders of organizations of all sizes and types. I’ve helped them navigate through major challenges. What I’ve learned is that you don’t have to be Steve Jobs or Carly Fiorina to be an outstanding leader.  You just need the character, competence, and courage which are traits that can be learned. This conference will teach you those traits.
