10.15The Hijacking of Your Happiness, Prosperity & Integrity… and What to Do About It in Your Business

by Dr David Gruder, PhD     SEE BIO

– Was greed really the root cause of the financial crisis of 2008-2012?
– What must we know about the meltdown’s hidden source in order to create a sustainable solution?
– How can you create financial security and abundance without sacrificing personal integrity or social responsibility?
– Why will positioning your business as your industry’s integrity leader win you new levels of customer loyalty and profits?


Our happiness, health, prosperity and integrity were hijacked during the last century (and on into this one) by a manifesto of profoundly manipulative strategies that were developed and first published back in 1928 by the father of modern public relations: Edward Bernays. The most influential man of the twentieth century that almost no one has heard of, the intentionally behind-the-scenes Bernays was the darling of business, advertising and virtually every 20th century American President, Republican and Democrat, starting with Woodrow Wilson at the end of WWI until his death in 1995.
This explosively eye-opening keynote reveals:
  • The profoundly powerful propaganda tactics Bernays developed and the US enemy who proved just how powerful they are
  • How these social engineering strategies were used to install the 1950s version of the American Dream in place of the original American Dream
  • The inadvertently devastating social and economic damage the 1950s American Dream continues to inflict to this day
  • What you can do as a business person, investor, lender or leader to take back your power from the hijackers of happiness, health, economics and integrity
  • Why doing this is your key to building a more sustainably prosperous and socially responsible tomorrow that would make our country’s founders proud

11.15…The Brain Science of Success

by Mark Kastleman, Co-Founder of Candeo   SEE BIO

– New results and ways of BEING require new thinking and different behaviors than what created your current condition.Break yourself free from outdated, no longer effective thinking and systems.  Replace them with new yet proven means to get the results you really want. 


We all want to be happy and successful in our personal lives, relationships and careers. But too often our thought patterns, behaviors, habits and outcomes don’t match our vision. Why?

We’re largely unaware of the myriad and complex workings and tendencies of the human brain. Once we have a solid understanding of “what makes us tick,” we can begin fully implementing the Brain Science of Success.

In his presentation, Mark will share some of the latest cutting-edge neuroscience, and most importantly how to actually apply this knowledge to achieve greater success in business, relationships and life.

Here are a few examples—

  • Big ideas are energizing and glamorous to the mind. Learn how to solve the “execution challenge” in your personal life and business.
  • By our very design, we are largely unaware of thought patterns and hidden influences that keep us in mediocrity. Learn how to achieve high levels of awareness—“If you can see it, you can change it.”
  • Sheer willpower is NOT enough, and often works against your brain’s natural abilities. Positive change and success are more about “skill” than “will.”

4 PM… Training that ‘sticks’

by Steven Drozdeck, Author, Entrepreneur, Coach   SEE BIO

Too many people THINK they are doing a good job when, in reality, they are only mediocre performers. Identifying good people and processes to model is the first step to ensuring effective business development. Such benchmarks help ensure quality standards and, once identified, can be codified and then taught to others. Our Accelerated Skills Acquisition Process (ASAP) approach to training allows people to quickly learn new skills while understanding both their importance and roles within an organization. This results in increased motivation and the desire to excel. While ASAP is reviewed, the talk also covers the basics of employee performance issues, including:

  • The “How To, Want To, Chance To Model of Employee Performance”
  • Understanding Employee Performance Issues
  • Easily and Quickly Develop S.O.P.’s to Leverage Success
  • Coaching / Mentoring Strategies – Some Do’s and Don’ts to Maximize Employee Effectiveness

Each topic will be supplemented with a comprehensive handout providing additional detail.


4.30 PM 15 min Break

4.45 – 5.30 PM  – Expert Panel : Have your questions answered by our Faculty. You will get dynamic details that you can immediately apply to get real results. 

5.30 PM…Adjourn
