Keynote & Annual Business Session
Helping Leaders Perform Better
Presenter: Mike Staver
Mike Staver is the author of Leadership Isn’t for Cowards and an internationally respected speaker, author, and coach. Mike takes noisy, often complex, leadership content and makes it immediately useful, digestible, and entertaining.
In all of Mike's work, the goal is simple – helping leaders perform better and live better lives. To accomplish this, Mike uses counterintuitive perspectives, a storytelling style, and entertaining delivery that makes the often-challenging realities of work and life easier to absorb and put into practice.
Focused on specific industry topics and moderated by NAPIM ink industry leaders, you and your fellow colleagues will have the opportunity to participate in an informal, conversational-style discussion tackling some of the industry's most thought-provoking questions. Don't miss this opportunity to kick off the morning with meaningful discussion—a great precursor to our general session.
You'll hear from Economist Kevin Smith with Independent Commodity Intelligence Services (ICIS), NAPIM's Director of Regulatory Affairs and Technology George Fuchs, and have the opportunity to listen to and share perspectives with your NAPIM colleagues during an engaging member panel.
