    Keynote Presentation:
    “HR Leadership Lessons from H-O-L-L-Y-W-O-O-D” - Magical imagery of Hollywood is used to help HR Leaders DEVELOP and EMPOWER their organizations in this challenging era of having to do more with less. This program cites research from Harvard Business Review, Deloitte, and Glassdoor to provoke REAL organizational change from every attendee.

    Strategic Leadership in the New Economy” - Leaders face new pressures to produce more with less, leading many to fall into the “do-it-all-myself” trap. A “Control Freak” culture is dangerous and damaging to any organization. Learn what you and your organization should do to develop and empower millennials and all future leaders to avoid this damaging environment.
