Annual Conference & Trade Show

8:30 am – It All Starts with Attitude! with Sam Glenn
Sam's energetic and often humorous program will engage, equip, and empower you with an attitude recharge that will improve both your professional and personal life. His speech will literally come alive as he draws a huge masterpiece. Sam has a simple philosophy: Organizations get better when the people get better; life gets better when we get better and it all starts with attitude.

10:50 am – Generational Differences with Nancy Gunter
Our workplace is changing - each generation gets credit for their piece but also for the clash this brings.  With four generations, and soon to be five, working together, change can be hard and communication even harder. In any conversation you could have four different ways of viewing things. This session will give you some insight into how these distinct generations think, what causes some of the problems, and how we can work differently.

1:00 pm – Breaking Ice with The Pillsbury House Theater 
As recommended by IIAO's Young Agents Committee
This award-winning program is an entertaining and thought-provoking theatrical experience designed to foster better understanding and communication around difficult issues. Through research and training, the Pillsbury House Theatre uses drama, humor, poetry, and monologue to explore the systemic inequities, unconscious bias, and misconceptions that show up in relationships among people which creates friction that impedes innovation, motivation, and productivity. Following the performance, a trained "Breaking Ice" facilitator will lead attendees in discussions using deep reflection and dialogue as a springboard to positive action.
