Getting the Board on Board: A CEO and CMO Perspective on Enabling Change Through Politics, Policies and People

Making change happen is difficult especially when it challenges the age-old “we’ve always done it this way” mentality. At LCMC Health, organizational and brand-related changes were led by a powerful collaboration between CEO and CMO. This session tells how they challenged the status quo to transform the organization and brand for the future. Learn the tactics and best practices of two collaborative leaders that not only engaged more than 8,500 employees but also got the board on board.

How to Lead and Influence: Making Gender Character Traits Work for You

Studies have shown that many of the ideal characteristics exhibited by the best leaders happen to be character traits historically considered feminine – empathy, vulnerability, humility, etc. Inspired by “Between Venus and Mars: 7 Traits of True Leaders,” and “The Athena Doctrine,” this presentation will highlight women and men in leadership roles who use largely feminine traits and why that makes them successful leaders.

The Big Fish Experience: Create Memorable Presentations That Reel in Your Audience

The success of every idea depends on the strength of how it’s presented. We’ve all had that one “big idea” – that passion project we’ve worked through the night and into the morning. Everyone has felt the drive that comes with it, and the desire to see it come to life. However, the next groundbreaking idea can’t be ignored just because it was presented badly. That’s why, in this interactive presentation, Kenny Nguyen of ThreeSixtyEight will teach you how to master the presentation process that has helped some of the largest brands in the world wow their audience.
