Opening Session Speaker - Steve Bollar

Standing TALL Through It All

Challenges can either force you to step up your game or they can stop you in your tracks. Steve will show you how to overcome challenges in your organization and come out bigger, better, and more motivated than ever. In this session, you’ll discover: 

  • How to maintain the focus needed and maintain your integrity… even when chaos and challenge surrounds you!...
  • How you can increase productivity no matter what is happening or how overwhelmed you are…
  • How to repair broken relationships that keep you from success - and how to prevent relationship breakdown from stalling your progress ever again!

Closing session speaker - Tara Brown

It has been said that ‘we never touch another so lightly that we do not leave a trace’. In this humorous inspirational keynote, Tara emphasizes that we are all leaders in some capacity, regardless of title or position, and that kids are constantly seeking leaders who they can follow. Through powerful stories of her time spent both teaching and coaching diverse populations, Tara emphasizes the importance of embracing intentional actions that will inspire and motivate. Characteristics of great leaders will be discussed and attendees will take away tremendous encouragement with which to embrace the power of their leadership footprint on a daily basis.

"I am only one, but still I am one. I cannot do everything, but still I can do something; and because I cannot do everything, I will not refuse to do something that I can do."  - Edward Everett Hale
