General Session 2 - 2017 - Year of the Rooster - Time to Wake Up?
Dr. Chris Kuehl
Managing Director, Armada Corporate Intelligence
An exploration of current and future economic trends.
Thus far the year has been tumultuous to say the least. The trends that started in 2016 are accelerating in 2017, affecting interest rates, inflation and the value of the dollar. There is widespread enthusiasm with both consumers and the business community, but much of this is in anticipation of what might be coming as far as regulatory reform, taxation and infrastructure development. Much has to happen before these become realities. Where are we and where might we be headed given what we know so far?

General Session 4 - Off Balance on Purpose: Work-Life Integration That’s Possible, Not Perfect
Peak Performance Leader
A new model for successful work-life integration that fosters excellence and innovation.
Achieving a perfect balance between the demands of work and the complexities of life is an intriguing, desirable concept. It’s also completely unrealistic. The common way of pursuing “balance” is entirely inadequate: We sell short our best efforts, burden ourselves with guilt, and exhaust our energy. Instead, we need to make an ongoing effort to infuse “life” into the workplace, and to let go of the notion of being perfectly balanced.
In this empowering keynote, Dan provides a new model for successful work-life integration that fosters excellence and innovation.
