ROOM 2 TITLE Don't Steal the Cheesecake - Digital Reputation Management in an "Everything You Do Is Posted Online" World In today's instant communication and social networking world, it's easy to share opinions and others can share the same about you. Unfortunately, what you and others post online, text, leave as a voicemail, say or do in front of a hidden camera, and even email is not limited to private networks and friend groups. Rather, there's a good chance that what happens in a digital format and what is said about you and your company is public, searchable, and archived, FOREVER! In "Don't Steal the Cheesecake" you will learn...
What is a "personal brand," why you already have one, how to enhance it, and how your personal brand can dramatically impact your company's brand and reputation.

The dangers of sharing too much information, what can happen if you're not careful, and how to respond in a digital format when you're angry, so you don't become a "YouTube Sensation."

What a company can, and cannot, do as it relates to what an employee posts on his/her personal social networks, and how to monitor, work with, and train staff to communicate in a digital world.

Inside secrets on how to manage your online presence and Google rankings (for non-technical people) so when people search for information on you, that you control what they find. This thought provoking, super entertaining, and somewhat scary program will provide you very practical ideas you can immediately implement to improve your brand, stay out of trouble, and craft/manage your digital reputation.

ROOM 4 TITLE How Change Management Can Benefit Your Next Implementation Change Management is an often foreign concept, and yet, everybody thinks they understand it. Successful Change Management practices can save companies tons of time, money, resources, and perhaps most importantly, it prevents talent from seeking new employment. With faster and enhanced user adoption, organizations can navigate the transition with less impact to the bottom line. This session will pull from years of experience with implementations and migrations to discuss Change Management as a part of project implementation. It will also touch on increased User Awareness and Adoption, User Proficiency, Decreased Productivity Lost During the Transition, and Faster ROI Realization. If you’ve ever been a part of an implementation that could have gone smoother, this may be a session for you!

ROOM 5 TITLE Managing Processes via Theory of Constraints Many companies' primary product or service is highly dependent on managing processes within the company. With this model, the product or service is delivered via a well-managed process, or so we hope. It seems that often times the process is in some state of "not quite working right," not delivering the anticipated results in terms of quantities or outcomes. And what isn't quite working right appears to change by the day, the week, the client, the product/service, or some combination of all, but never consistently.


Learn how Theory of Constraints addresses key assumptions in process management that, just like the financial side of the business, actually work against us. These include being efficient, balancing resources and capacities, and trying to leverage other methodologies such as lean and Six Sigma. Just as the constraint dictates the financial performance of the company, it also dictates how associated processes should be managed for outsized gains in capacities and performance. Walk away from this session with an approach to managing processes that creates a highly effective delivery engine for your products and services.

ROOM 6 TITLE Small Business Plateau’s: Observations & Insights to kick start growth As a professional service organization who has worked with hundreds of different small businesses over the past couple decades, we have observed (and experienced) common small business plateau’s. While we are all in different industries, there are common obstacles we all face to run successful organizations. Very often, small business revenues flatten at similar junctures – whether measured by revenue and/or the number of staff on our team – and until we solve the problems our organizations face, growth is unlikely. In this session we will share observations, personal stories and insights we have learned over the past 18 years as we have worked with (and learned from) clients, peers, business advisors, and our own mistakes. We will cover topics like the following and more:


The most significant piece of advice we ever received: “Hey dummies, it doesn’t take 4 people (owners) to run a business of your size”

Financial Literacy as a critical skill to move past initial plateau’s

Process & Documentation Get it out of your head sooner than later!

Attendees of this session will receive our Leadership Development Kit. We have made this kit available on our internal SharePoint site for our team, and hope that you can put it to good use!

ROOM 9 TITLE Decrypting Zero Day Threats in an Encrypted World – a technical deep dive about SSL & Sandboxes With over 50% of Internet traffic being encrypted, and new threats coming out at a rate of 5 – 10 per second: we have a security problem! At a technical level, we will break down how firewalls can keep you safe from encrypted threats. We will also cover the technology behind how it is possible for your firewall to protect you from threats that are not yet known with multiple layers of sandboxes – yes, sandboxes. This session is for the more technical attendees, or if you would merely like to understand the technology behind how firewalls protect your staff every day.
