Keynote Speakers

Jim Collins

Author

Jim Collins is a student and teacher of leadership and what makes great companies tick. He has authored or co-authored six books that have sold more than 10 million copies worldwide. In the best-seller Good to Great, he examines why some companies and leaders make the leap to superior results. His enduring classic Built to Last explores how some leaders build companies that remain visionary for generations. How the Mighty Fall delves into how once-great companies can self-destruct. His most recent book, Great by Choice, looks at the notion of thriving in chaos and the leadership behaviors needed in a world beset by turbulence, disruption, uncertainty, and dramatic change. Collins will reflect on and explore those ideas and more in his talk, “What Makes Great Companies Tick—And the Young Leaders We Need to Build Them.”

Mike Rayburn

Speaker, Entertainer, and Guitar Virtuoso

Mike Rayburn is an award-winning speaker, entertainer, and guitar virtuoso. His “‘What If…?’ Experience” keynote combines hilarious comedy and amazing guitar as he creatively illustrates three tools to turn your team into an army of innovators with the peak performance skills to transcend the status quo and lead by creating change. Drawing from his success as an entrepreneur as well as a Carnegie Hall headliner, Rayburn is a master at increasing profitability and impact by inspiring teams to become possibility thinkers and virtuoso performers. Just don’t blame us if your sides hurt from laughing too hard!
