Keynote Speakers

Thursday, April 25

Jeffrey C. Fuhrer

“The Myth That Made Us”
The Myth That Made Us exposes how false narratives—of a supposedly post-racist nation, of the self-made man, of the primacy of profit- and shareholder value-maximizing for businesses, and of minimal government interference—have been used to excuse gross inequities and to shape and sustain the US economic system that delivers them. Jeff Fuhrer argues that systemic racism continues to produce vastly disparate outcomes and that our brand of capitalism favors doing little to reduce disparities. Evidence from other developed capitalist economies shows it doesn’t have to be that way. We broke this (mean-spirited) economy. We can fix it.

Friday, April 26

Our surprise speaker and entertainer has performed over 2,500 shows over the last 30 years to audiences that have included elite leadership teams from Fortune 100 companies as well as countless associations and non-profits. He attributes his success to the willingness to break rules and will share his stories and insights about tapping the power of intelligent deviance. Industries that exist in an atmosphere of regulatory controls are especially prone to the creep of self-adopted limits and unnecessary emotional and social restraint. Success, innovation, and excellence always arises by engaging in some form of intentional rule breaking. Today’s most influential professionals challenge the hidden rules in our culture that compromise individual and organizational potential. Strategic rule breaking is an essential component of true contribution and a task that must be assumed by all members of an excelling organization. In this session you’ll walk away inspired to break some rules, knowing how to identify what they are, and exactly how to rise above them.
