The Future Is Now

The future is NOW, can you see it, can you feel it? Most importantly, are you ready? This year’s GENERATION W theme of Imagination, Innovation, Inspiration, is at the heart of everything we do. The creativity and thoughtfulness required of each of us as we embrace the future, the now, is front and center.

GENERATION W will feature amazing thinkers and doers who will challenge us, and encourage us. Leadership will be front and center as the amazing Joyce Russell, President of Adecco Staffing US, will share her life lessons on leadership gleaned from a stellar career leading in a business where people have been her core focus. Dr. Olenda Johnson, who teaches leadership at the US Naval War College, will bring her unique perspective as she prepares senior military personnel to lead our country. When you talk about imagination, there is Kara Ross, world-renowned jewelry designer, philanthropist, and CEO/Founder of Diamonds Unleashed (whose sales go to nonprofits serving young women to help them unleash their talents). Kara is a real life master class in learning how to unleash one’s own potential in fresh, innovative ways. Speaking of innovation, Dr. Heidi Hanna, CEO of Synergy and Executive Director of the American Institute of Stress, will share innovative techniques for dealing with stress in the high-pressure environments we often times must operate in. Dr. Hanna has consulted companies all over the country using her brain-based health and performance programming.

Yes, there is more. Topics that include science fiction sounding biomedical advancements such as growing our own bones puts innovation into perspective and we will hear some WOWsdom from the highest-ranking woman at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center. You will have to see for yourself so please join us on MARCH 31, 2017.

Words from the GENERATION W stage continue to ignite conversations and inspire each and every one of us to action. You don’t want to miss the stories and lessons from this year’s speakers.
