Our Minds, Our Machines
Tuesday, May 27, 2014
Day 1 Keynote Speaker
Today's headlines pit human against machine. We berate ourselves for being distracted, and implore ourselves and each other to be more focused. All of this plays into a cycle of ever-increasing stress. Our reverence for the power of machines has contributed to values that prioritize more, faster, more efficiently. This orientation is a fast path to burnout. Linda Stone will offer new ways to think about one of the most prized, and scarcest of our human resources: attention; and how a shift in the way we think and talk about attention can contribute to transforming our workday and our relationships for the better.

The LinkedIn Edge: Creating a Psychological Advantage in Social Business
Wednesday, May 28, 2014
Day 2 Keynote Speaker
Businesspeople today are looking for any kind of edge, some feature or factor that will keep them one step ahead of the competition. Regardless of industry or market segment, this is a cutthroat climate. These days, the rewards go to those that differentiate from the pack, keep their message relevant, and maintain a human touch in their interactions with others. For highly-motivated professionals who wish to capitalize on their ideas, talents, and skills, LinkedIn can be a game-changer.
Successful use of LinkedIn begins with the right mindset and extends to the faithful execution of a strategic plan. Gaining a competitive advantage on LinkedIn takes critical thinking, extensive preparation, and daily participation. It is accomplished by representing well, connecting with the right people, and communicating with authenticity and purpose. Yet so many people fail to convert LinkedIn activities to tangible, real world results.

What would you do if you couldn’t fail?
Find passion in your work and work in your passion

Day 3 Keynote Speaker
Nelson Mandela once said, "There is no passion to be found playing small—in settling for a life that is less than the one you are capable of living.”
In business and in life, we often choose to play small. We fear our own greatness and shy away from that which is hard, that which is different because of roadblocks we place in our own way. We worry about never finding our passion or drive—that internal energy that propels us forward in all our endeavors—and instead settle for a life that is merely "good enough,” rather than one full of meaningful work and joy.
Hear how others at all ages and stages in their careers have re-shaped their lives to create their own definition of success, living the highest expression of their innate talent. Learn strategies to take the first small but courageous steps to uncover your own passion; reframing or changing your work to reflect what you would do if you knew you couldn’t fail.
