Main Stage - The Future of Work

Corporate cultures are shifting dramatically.  The world was forced to find new ways to engage employees, build relationships, sell their services, manage partners and how to work – in a very short amount of time.  As we settle into news ways of doing business, we explore how these short-term adjustments impact the overall corporate culture, and some of the most important areas executives need to be mindful of as they explore work from anywhere policies and impacts to travel and meetings policies/budgets.

Main Stage - Wellness

It has been almost two years since our world was turned upside down and we have been forced to make unimaginable changes in our professional and personal life.

While we can’t go back in time, we can certainly move forward to create a life that is more fulfilling, focused and balanced. Join our keynote speaker, Andrée Jetté, as she provides effective strategies on how to use humor when reacting to stressful situations and ways to rediscover our internal sense of joy. It’s time to get on the road to happiness!
