Effective this date: 9/18/17  (TOPICS links below will be updated frequently until all slots are filled.)

  • Hands-On! Workshops: Roll up your sleeves and come ready to work! These Hands-On! sessions are offered in two flavors: 3 hour introductory workshops and in-depth full-day workshops. In either case, the goal will be to work through a specific topic so that you are ready to act on it when you get home. Here are the available TOPICS as of the date at the top of this page.
  • Concurrent Sessions: These are your traditional conference presentations where you’ll find a mix of 45-minute sessions presented by business executives, local entrepreneurs, and some of the nation’s leading business/marketing educators. EDUCATOR, BUSINESS, and KEYNOTE as of the date at the top of this page.
  • QuickStop Show and Tell sessions: Join us for Total Conclave Chaos to keep the blood moving. These QuickStop sessions (15-minutes each) are designed to send you home with a laundry list of actionable ideas. Sort of like a Ted-Talk, each QuickStop presenter is charged with sharing something of significant value while the clock ticks. TOPICS as of the date at the top of this page.
  • DeepThink Roundtables: Don’t confuse these DeepThink sessions with a traditional roundtable. The only thing they have in common is the table. As the name implies, DeepThinks are intended to help work through a problem or idea in a discussion-oriented atmosphere. (All Conclave registrants will be invited to submit ideas for specific issues or ideas they’d like to discuss.)
