Agenda

The REACH program will be packed with proven tips, guiding principles, inventive tools and leadership insight that can be put into action immediately to help creative professionals thrive.

This won’t be a show-and-tell or a speaker self-promotion. REACH will be full of candid conversations, honest stories and straight talk designed to be evocative, empowering and inspirational.

Sessions will cover critical topics such as: Design ROI for business, innovation, influence and persuasion, navigating the system, conflict and negotiation, high-performance, active listening and effective communication.

Full program and speaker roster will be available in the end of September. If you wish to receive updates, please sign up for our mailing list.

“The future belongs to a different kind of person with a different kind of mind: artists, inventors, storytellers, creatives and holistic “right brain” thinkers whose abilities mark the fault line between who gets ahead and who doesn’t.”
