Conference Keynote Speakers

Day 1 Opening Keynote Address

Michelle Cederberg

The Success-Energy Equation

Michelle Cederberg

Health & Productivity Expert

In an age of disengagement, distraction and fatigue exacerbated by the on-going pandemic, how we work and live has been tested. We’re busy, stretched and stressed, and as we process the constant change and uncertainty of it all, it can feel difficult to stay focused, and do our best work. Full of anecdotes and innovative strategies, you’ll leave this session with a renewed sense that it's possible to break free from stress and drive your own success.

Day 2 Opening Keynote Address

Alex Benay

Everything Has Changed: Top Traits of a Digital Leader

Alex Benay

KPMG | Speaker

The digital revolution has taken a mere decade to creep into every aspect of our lives. One cannot manage today like we managed in the past. COVID has made these changes more acute. This keynote goes over what has actually happened to the workplace during the digital economic transition of the past 5-10 years. Discover the assumptions you are most likely guilty of as a leader, and what new leadership traits must emerge to compete in this new digital reality.

Day 2 Closing Keynote

Meg Soper

Work-Life Balance? You’ve Got to Be Kidding!

Meg Soper RN

Motivational Humorist

This presentation brings interactive humor to the subject of resilience, recognizing that finding life balance is a journey – not a destination. Managing all the demands and priorities on our time can prove to be overwhelming.

Meg offers a humorous perspective on the serious matter of dealing with stress and encouraging us to be mindful of how we allocate our mental and physical energy so we can bounce back from challenge and adversity, and find the confidence needed to handle whatever comes our way.

Work Life Balance? You’ve Got to be Kidding! will inspire, entertain, and leave audience members with strategies to benefit our health and self-confidence, as well as strengthen relationships at work and at home.
