Keynote Address - How to Win an Unfair Fight: What the Most Influential People Do Differently [ALL] Garrison Wynn, Wynn Solutions This entertaining (that means funny) research-based keynote reveals how top performers harness the power of their advantages, even when the odds are not in their favor.

And how can you get better results from the difficult people you encounter along the way? With an emphasis on what you can actually walk out of the session with and achieve tomorrow; this program shows you how to weather the perfect storm while still looking really good in a raincoat! Never Say No Comment: How to Protect Your Reputation and Shine in the Media Spotlight [O, PM, A] Karen Friedman, Karen Friedman Enterprises Imagine a TV camera, microphone or print reporter recording your every word. You blank out, say the wrong thing or maybe you don’t understand what the media really wants. Whether you’re live at five, quoted in a newspaper or appear on You Tube, how your organization manages and delivers media messages often drives public perception. In this eye opening session, international communications coach and best-selling author Karen Friedman will show you how to confidently turn negatives into positives and maximize results during the toughest of times. Learn how to think like a reporter to anticipate questions and help them help you tell your story, condense complicated information into bite-sized nuggets that are easily quoted and understood, the do’s and don’ts of effective interviews to minimize mistakes and maximize results, and how to control information even when you can’t comment. 2:45 pm to 3:45 pm
