Masters Series: Follow Me: Leadership by Design

Speaker: John Spence
Length: 75 minutes

It’s been said that you aren’t really a leader if people are not willing to follow. So what makes someone want to follow? John Spence, a business improvement expert and author of Excellence by Design: Leadership – The Six Key Characteristics of Outstanding Leaders, conducted research with 8,000+ high potential employees at top companies around the world to capture what people look for in a leader they would willingly follow.

Spence will reveal his key findings and discuss how to leverage them to design your personal leadership style. You’ll depart with solutions to some of the most challenging issues leaders are facing right now and examples how to effectively implement them. This 75 minute session will be a fast paced, “Cliffs Notes” leadership jump start to 2014.

PCMA Business School: Global Prosperity Why Everything is About to Change

Speaker: Vikram Mansharamani
Length: 90 minutes

As the middle-class booms in emerging nations, a global consumption boom is likely to have an unprecedented impact on a wide range of commodities – food, fuel, precious metals - that will impact the global standard of living. The result will be geopolitical and economic uncertainty. Vikram untangles these dynamics through easy-to-understand, entertaining, and engaging analysis that evaluates the effect of a ballooning middle-class on an unlikely collection of industries -- from education and entertainment to defense, finance and healthcare. These insights will help you look differently at the nature of global prosperity and how it may shape your meeting and your future.
  • Identify the factors that will impact the global standard of living
  • Examine how global prosperity may shape your meeting
  • Analyze how the ballooning middle-class and other factors will impact the meetings industry
