Influence Redefined… Be the Leader You Were Meant to Be, Monday to Monday
Stacey Hanke, Stacey Hanke Inc.

You may not be as influential as you think you are! Influence Redefined will give you the opportunity to take a closer look at what’s really going rather than what you believe to be true.

Stacey will help you eliminate any verbal or non-verbal distractions you may be unaware of - to influence others to act. You will learn to communicate a consistent personal brand verbally and non-verbally Monday to Monday® and be introduced to a proven, step-by-step method for improving communication and creating influence that moves people to action long after an interaction is over.

Closing Keynote
The Champions Code: Building Relationships Through Life Lessons of Integrity and Accountability from the Sports World to the Business World
Ross Bernstein, Ross Bernstein Speaking
 
Ross's signature keynote, "The Champion's Code,” is all about the DNA of what makes champions in sports so unique and how that relates to business. His PowerPoint is full of amazing photos about inspirational sports stories and about successful teams that tie into ethics and accountability, and about doing things the right way — with respect.
 
There are reasons certain teams win consistently, whereas others don't – and he explains why. It's based largely on the "Good to Great" concept of how the best companies can separate themselves from the rest of the pack through dynamic leadership, by creating a culture of excellence, by developing deeper relationships, and by giving extraordinary customer service. Ross weaves sports stories, about the DNA of champions, along with stories of companies who he has worked with — and shares best practice ideas on ways for HR professionals to think differently about hiring the right people while ultimately building stronger relationships.
