Opening General Session: The Relationship Driven Leader
Because People Do Business with People They Like
Michelle Tillis Lederman

Your ability to create meaningful and lasting relationships directly impacts your success from hiring, to referrals, to closing the deal. Growing a larger network with stronger relationships increases your value, influence and impact.

Discover how you can become a leader who attracts and engages an eager, committed team. Expand your role, build loyalty, and close deals on relationships not price.  And when opportunities arise, be first in mind and someone they want to say ‘yes’ to!

General Session: Talk Triggers - Turn Your Customers into Volunteer Marketers
Jay Baer

Word of mouth is responsible for as much as 50% of all purchases, yet almost nobody has an actual plan to generate it. In this fast-paced, dynamic, modern presentation, Jay Baer presents you with a simple, yet critical choice: do you want to be the same or do you want to be different?

When you offer a differentiated, talkable customer experience, it compels the conversation. And when customers talk, they recruit new customers….for free.
