KEYNOTE PRESENTATION: Leveraging the Gaps That Lead You to Greatness
What is it that makes some leaders successful, while others can’t get traction with their people, their customers, or their organizations—no matter how hard they try? Why do some people seem like they were born to lead, while others struggle to gain the loyalty and engagement of their people? What’s holding you back from being the best leader you can be? Find out in this session. Lolly Daskal is a well-known leadership executives coach working for some of the world’s most successful and recognizable brands. She will reveal the seven characteristics of leadership that the most successful leaders, bosses, and managers embody and need to succeed.
Working Together Virtually

- Recruit the right team and keeping them motivated
- Get started on the right foot, resolve issues related to virtual work and limit the impact of project delays
- Navigate cultural conflicts—for example, “yes” doesn’t always mean “yes”
