CEO KEYNOTE SPEAKER
Finding Your Fuel
We all have big dreams and ambitious goals for our businesses—but if we don’t actively “fuel up” along the way, we risk burning out and running out of gas before we get there. Jessica Honegger, Founder and Co-CEO of Noonday Collection, will share her own story of growing the world’s largest fair trade accessories brand—and what has served as fuel for her on the journey. Whether it’s a desire to spread the word about a life-changing product; a passion for equipping others to grow as leaders; or a commitment to building community through entrepreneurship, Honegger will help you identify what fuels you, and share how you can harness that fuel to reach your goals.
STATE OF THE INDUSTRY and Presidential Address
Don't miss this opportunity to hear from DSA's President and Chief Executive Officer as he unveils the top-line findings from DSA's 2019 Growth & Outlook Survey reporting on data from 2018 and provides a vision forward.
KEYNOTE: ACCELERATE YOUR LEADERSHIP BRILLIANCE
Business change moves at the speed of light. To keep pace, individuals within an organization must raise the bar on their performance and reset their mindset. The leadership skills of yesterday will not carry the day in today’s continually evolving economy.
As the business climate changes in the midst of gender parity, #MeToo, pay equity, and diversity and inclusion we too must change and embrace what Simon T. Bailey calls the “Vuja de Moment.” This is the opposite of déjà vu and is an invitation to disrupt what is comfortable and convenient to embrace what needs to emerge to remain relevant, innovative, and competitive.
Collaborative problem-solving triumphs over traditional top-down directives. Solution-oriented individuals are forward-looking in their thinking. Forward-looking thinking must permeate throughout the corporate culture. You must shift and embrace new methodologies to survive, compete and thrive through the ever-changing demographic, technological, and regulatory marketplace changes that affect businesses today.
No one is immune to these predictable changes. The traditional winning formulas of yesterday will not hold up to the technological solutions that will continue to automate “traditional” business processes.
Simon T. Bailey will teach you to:
Stay relevant and ensure your company stays competitive in the marketplace
Guide even the most tenured employees to reposition themselves and revitalize their role
Perform a mindset reset to break through the existing paradigm
Maintain clarity and confidence during transition and uncertainty
Take ownership and develop the vision needed to be a leader for the future
General Session 2 - 1:35 P.M. to 3:20 P.M.
KEYNOTE: MASTERING THE ART OF MOMENTUM - THE SCERET TO ACHIEVING EFFORTLESS AND ENDURING GROWTH
We all love being on a roll, in sync and firing on all cylinders – that flow-state sensation where everything just seems to work.
But what happens when the groove becomes a rut, inspiration evaporates or your mojo disappears?
Enduring success and growth for any business today is dependent on building and maintaining unstoppable momentum.
Attend this session to discover:
The SCIENCE and ART of momentum – where it comes from and why it makes all the difference when you’ve got it working for you
A PRACTICAL and POWERFUL FORMULA for building momentum individually or in a team
How to get into a FLOW STATE of PEAK PRODUCTIVITY on a daily basis
The role that FOCUS and CONSISTENCY play in ensuring a GROOVE doesn’t become a RUT over time
Walk away from this session with a clear action plan for achieving effortless growth and maintaining it over the long haul.
