Keynote: More Than Winning

Eric Boles, CEO and Founder of The Game Changers, Inc.; Former Wide Receiver, National Football League

The goal of every team is to win; no matter the venue or arena of competition, sports or business, the objective is to come out on top. What if there was a better approach that does not involve winning or losing, where winning was simply the by-product? The pursuit of excellence is not about winning – it is “More than Winning.” It is giving your very best in pursuit of a goal or worthwhile endeavor bigger than yourself. That’s what Eric Boles experienced in his years in the NFL playing for the New York Jets and Green Bay Packers, and what he now focuses on in his work with executives and business. In this dynamic leadership keynote, he’ll show you how to unlock your team’s potential and inspire them to tackle your greatest challenges.

Keynote: Learning to Love Turbulence – Creating a Flight Plan to Clear any Goal for Take-Off

Amelia Rose Earhart, Inspiring Around-The-World Pilot & TV Personality

When we set our minds toward any big goal, we imagine creating our plan and executing it to completion. We tell ourselves that if we work hard enough, we will soar from Point A to Point B gracefully, leaving others to wonder how we ever pulled it off. When we begin our journey, the wind is at our backs and the view is spectacular. Suddenly, there’s a terrifying jolt. We’ve been thrown off course by something we never saw coming: turbulence. Suddenly, our well thought out plan is thrown out the window. We are now in crisis mode. Which way is up? Who is on our team? Is there ANY safe place to land? From the art of navigating the holding pattern, to developing vision beyond sight, to what it takes to build a high functioning flight crew, Amelia’s aviation analogies ring true and will resonate with IT leaders piloting their companies through turbulence to a smooth landing.
