Dr. Meg Myers Morgan - author, keynote speaker, college educator and executive coach

Breaking down the ways in which we strive to be liked, how we get mired down in the rumor mill at work, and how we often spend our precious energy trying to please others—family, friends, coworkers—in our life.

Shawn Kruggel & Winston Peraza - Cubic Creative

For many people, "creativity" is an elusive quality, a special talent they recognize in others but don't believe they themselves possess. In reality, creativity is an innately human trait, inborn in all of us. Whether we realize it or not, we all own the rights to it. We’ll talk about where creative insight comes from, why discomfort and tension are optimal and how believing in a higher purpose will drive creative insight.
