Keynote Speakers

Molly Fletcher, CEO and Founder , The Molly Fletcher Company
Monday, April 24 9:15 A.M. – 10:30 A.M. CDT

Transform Your Business Relationships

Success in business is rooted in relationships, and those who cultivate relationships rise to the top. Working in an industry with more agents than athletes to represent, Molly Fletcher used the power of relationships as her differentiator. Fletcher will share her unique tactics that will help you build better and more productive relationships, avoid common negotiating pitfalls and close more deals, and embrace the tough conversations you need to have. 

David Novak, Executive Chairman, Yum! Brands, Inc.
Tuesday, April 25 12:00 P.M. – 1:30 P.M. CDT

Doors open at 11:45 a.m.

The Awesome Power of Recognition

Novak, recognized as one of the best-performing CEO’s in the world by Harvard Business Review, runs Yum! Brands—the world's largest restaurant company and parent of KFC, Pizza Hut and Taco Bell—with a staggering 1.4 million employees. He learned long ago that you can't lead a great organization of any size—from a tiny startup to a global giant—without getting your people aligned, enthusiastic, and focused relentlessly on the mission. But how do you accomplish that?

As Yum’s chairman and CEO, Novak has personally trained thousands of managers with his leadership guide—which has been 15 years in the making and tested on more than 4,000 managers—and is an action plan that challenges leaders to rise to higher levels of performance.

Novak knows that managers in the trenches don't need leadership platitudes or business theories. With a focus on corporate culture, customer relations and employee empowerment that enabled him to grow Yum! Brands globally, Novak cuts right to the chase and shares the secrets of the unique leadership program he’s developed in easy-to-follow steps: setting big goals, getting your people on board, blowing past your targets, celebrating together after you shock the skeptics, and doing it again and again until consistent excellence becomes a core element of your culture. Novak inspires teams—from front line to front office—while delivering a specific process to help organizations achieve growth.
