General Session 2 - 2017 - Year of the Rooster - Time to Wake Up?

Speaker:
Dr. Chris Kuehl
Managing Director, Armada Corporate Intelligence

Takeaways: 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 3 - The Disruption & Reinvention of Manufacturing: The Key Trends Underlying the North American Manufacturing Renaissance

Speaker:
Jim Carroll
Futurist, Trends and Innovation Expert

Takeaways: An overview of the reality of manufacturing today and the big opportunities that come from aligning to fast-paced trends.

Collapsing product lifecycles. Mass customization. Digitization, robotics and the cloud. Rapid prototyping, sketch to scale, and agility-based business models … are you ready for the new world of manufacturing?

While popular media and opportunistic politicians portray a picture of a sector in crisis, smart manufacturing executives are furiously busy with innovation, reinventing their capabilities, processes and business models using advanced ideas, materials, methodologies and technologies.

Join Jim Carroll as he takes us on a tour of the reality of manufacturing today and the big opportunities that come from aligning to fast-paced trends.

General Session 4 - Off Balance on Purpose: Work-Life Integration That’s Possible, Not Perfect

Speaker:
Dan Thurmon
Peak Performance Leader

Takeaways: 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.
