If you haven't checked out the line-up of speakers that will cover branding, coaching, writing, it is one you don't want to miss.

Meet Our Keynote Speaker

Paul Osincup | Leveraging Levity: Humor as a Strategy for Workplace Positivity

More than one-third of Americans experience chronic stress at work and 85% report not being happy at work. This high-energy, funny, and content-rich talk will explore both why and how to use humor as a tool for positivity, productivity, and success at work. Although it's packed full of actionable and research-based ideas for implementation in the work of symposium attendees and their clients, this talk is only appropriate for those who enjoy laughing.
