  • Winning Communications

    Rick DeBruhl

    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.

    Rick DeBruhl is a lifelong communicator. With a career that started in radio and now finds him covering auto racing for ESPN, he's learned the art of storytelling. Rick has a Master's degree in Media Management and is also the chief communications officer for a statewide organization. He understands communication theory and how it can make or break an organization.

    Winning Communications will help explain:

    * The importance of the communications culture
    * Critical communications needed during innovation and changing strategy
    * Communicating at the right speed

    Tailored to fit your group or organization, Winning Communications will inspire your audience to find new ways to get amazing results.

  • What are KPIs and How Do I Track Them in My Business?

    Corwin Smith, Entrepreneur / Scaling Up Coach, Transcend Growth Parnters

    Let's face it, there's no shortage of great advice out there but little can be tied to real performance. I was once a CEO who managed my company from "gut" instinct. The problem is my "gut" didn't scale to my managers and it left frustrated with lack luster results. Even worse, my employees were relying on me to 'read the tea leaves' and predict the future. Before I learned how to properly develop and track KPIs I was shooting in the dark. MORE >
