Our keynote speaker, Tom Flick, has a message of urgency in a time where change is a constant and leadership at all levels is critical for top performance. Tom has garnered a reputation around the world as an authority on leadership by helping organizations such as Google, Starbucks, Boeing, and the Pentagon to develop leaders, lead change, increase teamwork, and accelerate personal and organizational performance.
Tom’s passion for raising more effective leaders is achieved by his unique gift to connect with the listener's heart as well as their head, understanding that people, not programs, help organizations change and grow. He draws on his leadership experience as a former NFL quarterback for seven seasons, his work with the world’s foremost authority on Change Leadership, Harvard Professor Dr. John Kotter, and his extensive work in corporate America,to provide actionable solutions around developing leaders and leading the change process.
