|Opening Keynote Abstract: |
With never-ending changes, with flattened organizations, with fewer employees to do the work, with loyalty a thing of the past, negative comments can be a natural byproduct. Comments such as, “It won’t work
We already tried that
I can’t do it” become all too familiar.
Unfortunately, negativity will defeat you faster than the competition. Negativity is extremely contagious and results in an environment where people don’t try as hard, don’t care as much, and don’t succeed as often.
With the world of work so very challenging these days, you must know how to keep yourself from being brought down by all the challenges, how to keep on being a positive project manager, and how to build a work environment that is alive, exciting, and positive. That’s what this program is all about.
Opening Keynote Speaker Biography:
At the age of 7, Dr. Alan Zimmerman was selling greeting cards door-to-door. By age 14, he owned a small international import business. By age 21, he was teaching at the University of Minnesota, and during the next 15 years, he was selected as the “Outstanding Faculty Member” by two different universities.
At age 36, our speaker retired from teaching and opened his own speaking and training company. That position has allowed him to deliver more than 2000 programs, to more than a million people, in 48 states and 22 countries.
Of course, you may already be familiar with Dr. Zimmerman. You may have seen him on CNN or on the CBS Morning Show. In fact, his newest book called, “PIVOT: How One Turn In Attitude Can Lead To Success” has been featured on over 200 TV and radio shows across the country.
Today, you can expect a powerful, practical program that really works. That’s why our speaker has been inducted into the Speaker Hall of Fame, an honor that has only been given to a few people in the last 30 years including Ronald Reagan, Colin Powell, Norman Vincent Peale, and Zig Ziglar.
On the personal side, our speaker is married, has 4 adult children and 5 grandsons. He loves to hike, bike, and travel to exotic parts of the world. For more information, you can visit: www.DrZimmerman.com
