Something to Talk About
What makes YOU the ONE they can TRUST?
Last year’s conference keynote ended with the understanding that your most important superpower is your trustworthiness. Based on your request, the keynote speaker is back! He will pick it up from where he left it off, and this time show you what makes you trusted (or distrusted) by others and how you could grow from the ONE you are today to an even more trusted version of yourself in the future.
Dr. Yoram Solomon is the author of The Book of Trust (the 3rd edition is now the most comprehensive book ever written about trust) and 15 more books, and an adjunct professor of entrepreneurship at SMU. He was named one of the Top 40 Innovation Bloggers and one of the Top 20 Global Thought Leaders on Culture consistently in the past several years. His insights on trust come from his original research and from his experiences as an infantry soldier in the Israeli Defense Forces, a pilot, a corporate executive, and an elected official.

Recapturing Your Childlike Spirit: Borrowing from Your Past to Brighten Your Future
Feeling stuck? Having trouble finding motivation? Perhaps your childhood self holds the answer. As kids, we were brimming with optimism and loaded with creativity. We lived firmly in the present but could imagine ourselves anywhere. We were free of inhibition and weren’t afraid to make new friends. With a few minutes of the right focus each day, we CAN get back to a place where we feel lighter, happier, and more excited about the future.
