KEYNOTE SPEAKER & TOPIC INFO: Our keynote speaker for this event is Bill Reeb, CPA, CITP, CGMA, Co-Founder and CEO, Succession Institute, LLC. Bill’s Topic will be Building a Better, Faster, Stronger Bench.

With today’s rapid pace of change, leadership opportunity and challenge is everywhere, especially given the number of baby boomers retiring in the next five years. Unfortunately, all too often, bad leadership and management prevail. This session identifies and discusses the fundamentals of closing competency gaps and how to develop your people better, faster and stronger. To accomplish this, we will cover:

  • Why management has to be the first people to evolve
  • How both leveraging your strengths and developing your weaknesses are critical to the self-improvement process
  • The difference and differentiating between performance and developmental management and expectations
  • The need to embrace the Learn, Try, Fail™ process into the culture of your firm
  • The Top 10 Impulses you need to Manage to be an Effective Leader
