  12. 12. Keynote Speakers Arianna Huffington President, The Huffington Post Media Group Arianna Huffington is the chair, president, and editor-in-chief of The Huffington Post Media Group, as well as a nationally syndicated columnist and author of 13 books. In May 2005, she launched The Huffington Post, a news and blog site that quickly became one of the most widely read, linked to, and frequently cited media brands on the Internet. In 2012, the site won a Pulitzer Prize for national reporting. In 2013, she was named to the Forbes Most Powerful Women list. In 2006, and again in 2011, she was named to the TIME 100, TIME magazine's list of the world's 100 most influential people.

  13. 13. Keynote Speakers Arianna Huffington Redefining Success: The Third Metric That Can Benefit Your Bottom Line During her keynote address, Huffington will challenge the audience to use a third metric, beyond money and power, to define success. A metric that is based on well-being, health, our ability to unplug, recharge, and renew ourselves and find joy in all aspects of our life, including our job. Mounting evidence, both scientific and anecdotal, confirms that the practices that make us less stressed also make us more productive, and Huffington provides clear examples of how this is not only good for families and employees’ health, but also good for a company’s bottom line. Eloquent and engaging, Huffington shares how ‘leaning back’ makes for wiser leaders and how ultimately, success is not just about money or position, but about living the life you want—not just the life for which you settle.
  14. 14. Keynote Speakers General Stan McChrystal • Former Four-star General • Author of the best selling leadership book: “My Share of the Task: A Memoir” A four-star general, he is the former commander of U.S. and international forces in Afghanistan and the former leader of Joint Special Operations Command (JSOC).

Its mission is to deliver innovative leadership solutions to organizations, which help them transform and succeed in challenging and dynamic environments.

  15. 15. Keynote Speakers General Stan McChrystal CrossLead: Lessons on Leadership from a Warrior, Statesman, and Scholar. In this dynamic presentation on leadership, General Stan McChrystal shows how modern warfare, business, and politics demand no-nonsense leadership that is as good at implementing change as talking about it. He reveals the power of culture, communication, and relationships, sharing stories, experiences, and principals that make his points. McChrystal addresses such key leadership principles as transparency and inclusion, leveraging the power of teams through shared ownership, evolutionary change versus revolutionary change, relentless mission focus, and sharing a clear vision with everyone who must execute against it.
