  • Winning Communications

    TOPIC CATEGORY: Business

    Racing is a business. And like any business its success is dependent on people. It's not enough to have the greatest driver, if the team backing them up isn't working together. And even that isn't enough if they aren't communicating. MORE >

    Of course, we all know that. We simply need to be reminded. And it needs to be done in a way that grabs the attention of the people in your organization. A compelling story that shows what can be accomplished when communication is a part of the plan.

    This presentation isn't about racing. It's about winning.

    Alexander Rossi's victory in the 100th running of the Indy 500 was an amazing achievement. Here was a rookie who had never driven in this race, beating drivers and teams with decades of experience. So how did he do it? Two words: communications and teamwork. Telling that story is more than just entertaining, it's an amazing lesson in how any business can find a victory.

  • Communicating Cyber Security: Turning Employees Into Warriers

    TOPIC CATEGORY: Business

    The average cost to a business hit by a cyber attack is now $1 million. Three years ago the White House estimated that cyber attacks will cost the US economy as much as $109 billion. But while organizations are spending millions on tech solutions, they're often overlooking their biggest risk: their employees. A study by the Ponemon Institute found 48% of breaches occur because of internal negligence. MORE >

    Fortunately, it doesn't have to be that way. Cybersecurity experts say one of the first investments should be employee training that centers around communication. This keynote is a wakeup call to leaders about how to reduce the threat without a massive expense.

    ​Rick's background as a broadcaster, chief communication officer and even a brief stint managing an IT department gives him the insight to both understand the problem and explain how to make needed changes.
