This keynote address is focused on:

  1. Connecting to what inspires us and to what enables us to grow. This can be education, learning new ways of doing things, learning from others and bringing value to what we do and who we are.
  2. ​The roots of success is also based on working with others. Everybody plays a role in the success of the tree. It is important to recognize, respect, and acknowledge what others do in a positive way. We achieve more when we work together.
  3. The roots of success is based on developing a greater resilience through the seasons. Life is filled with changes and challenges and the unexpected. Having a positive attitude does not stop the seasons from coming but it equips us to withstand the test of time and it allows us to find solutions that work for moving forward. 

The idea is to turn your lemons into a lemonade stand so it profits you and others. ​In essence,​​ we should not waste our trials ​and adversities. We ​need to learn how to use ​these lessons to grow and to ​prosper from. And that is how we become more resilient. If we want to be successful and bring greater value to those that we serve, ​we have to focus on the roots​ that make​s​ success possible.

Learning Objectives

The participant will be able to grow their roots in excellence, quality, purpose and engagement to unite and flourish together.
