Meet the Experts of Leadership Summit 2016
In addition to Gene Marks, Dennis Snow and Avish Parashar, several additional speakers will be sharing their expertise at the Summit. Shelley Row will present two seminars Wednesday afternoon focusing on teaching business leaders and their employees how to identify time-wasting, productivity-sapping mistakes, and on harnessing one’s instinct to make timely decisions. Also speaking at the Leadreship Summit this year is sales expert Richard Farrell, who will host a seminar on how businesses can meet the “twin evil forces” facing all companies today: tough economic times and dragging their sales force into the 21st century.
