Event Overview
Balancing Resources and Priorities
One of the challenges of leadership is allocating resources amongst competing ideas and projects.  In this presentation, Mike Devereux, president and CEO of Nature’s Way Brands, will describe the strategic planning process that takes place at Nature’s Way. This includes how they evaluate their business strategy over multiple horizons, short term/medium term/long term, in order to build a growing and sustaining business over the long term. Mike will share his experiences with this process including the tough decisions that can sometimes be controversial when balancing the dilutive impact of investments on short-term performance.

Event Overview
Redefine Achieve
Sept. 8, 2013, Mary Cox and Christian Jensen took on Ironman Wisconsin together as friends. Mary is afflicted with Muscular Dystrophy, which leaves her completely disabled. In order to complete the event, Christian, Mary’s personal trainer, pulled and pushed Mary the 140.6 miles in a boat, bike trailer and running chair. Why? To Redefine “Achieve.”

Christian and Mary are founders of the Wisconsin Chapter of myTEAM TRIUMPH, an athletic mentoring program for challenged athletes. Christian will share the story of their unique relationship, their passion for helping others achieve their dreams and lessons on how we can all redefine what it means to “achieve.”

About the Speaker
Christian Jensen
Executive Director
myTEAM TRIUMPH WI Chapter
Christian Jensen started his professional career as a personal trainer with Bellin Health in Green Bay in 2007. That summer, he met a woman named Mary Cox with whom he started training, with the goal of improving functioning that had been severely limited due to muscular dystrophy.The training focused on helping Mary to slow the progression of the disease; however, in the long run, it was Mary who trained Christian through her positive and resilient spirit! As part of Mary’s therapy, Christian and his wife took Mary for runs on the Fox River Trail with the use of a specialized racing chair. They also participated in local endurance events such as the Bellin Run. Participating in endurance events gave Mary a freedom her body could no longer provide. In 2009, Christian and Mary guided Mary to complete her first marathon. Upon crossing the finish line, Mary sparked the start of something they believed would change our community when she said “I feel free when we run!” In 2010, the Wisconsin Chapter of myTEAM TRIUMPH, a non-profit athletic mentoring program for challenged athletes, was started.Since the launch of the organization, myTEAM TRIUMPH has focused on enabling the spirit of challenged athletes through the teamwork environment of endurance athletics. Mary and the other “captains” who lead myTEAM TRIUMPH have a gift of an enduring spirit. The result of bringing together selfless, able-bodied athletes and the character of challenged athletes builds a community of servant leaders. Since the launch of the Wisconsin Chapter of myTEAM TRIUMPH, Christian has had the honor of providing a life-changing experience to hundreds of challenged athletes.

Event Overview
In today’s world, rules and regulations to control behaviors are no longer effective ways to run a company. Results are produced by employees who are driven and inspired by their leaders and peers to do the right thing and make the right decision; and those who do not work just for the pay but for their ability to achieve.

Many leadership articles and talent management trainings have now begun to focus on inspirational leadership. It is believed that companies/teams are more engaged and function more effectively with inspiring leaders (with or without official titles). In the process, employees become more engaged, a trait that transcends other areas of their lives including community involvement.

For the past five years, Mike Haddad, president and CEO of Schreiber Foods, has been inspiring 7,000+ partners by abiding by principles of inspirational leadership. He will share his experience of inspiring others and the journey he’s taken to become an inspiration leader not only in the corporate world but also in the community.

Event Overview
Discover Leadership through Film: WestboundDuring this unique screening of “Westbound. The Journey of Lifetime.” Director Jim Rivett and Producer Shelly Young will guide an interactive discussion of one of the film’s principle lessons: leadership. Following the viewing of this documentary created by local firm Arketype, they’ll guide you through a dialogue that will debunk the myth that leadership is all business: leadership is in your neighborhood, in your community, it’s everywhere
Synopsis
WESTBOUND. The Journey of a Lifetime.As a child during the Depression, Adolph Vandertie was captivated by a desire for travel. Visiting the hobo jungles, he was part of a world where men told stories of adventure and measured time by whittling. Adolph once watched an old hobo whittle a ball-in-cage – the quintessential design among whittlers. From that moment a lifelong fascination to master a dying art took hold. Each cut into the soft wood fueled the memory of freedom of riding the rails.

Tramp art and hobo whimsies were uniquely born of an independent spirit. Hobos whittle. Tramps carve. Both craft amazing objects from discarded cigar boxes and found materials. One man, Adolph Vandertie – Grand Duke of the Hobos – created more than 4,000 rare and beautiful pieces of this distinctive folk art form. Using the trash of an economy that became too arrogant to care, Vandertie transforms the refuse.

Westbound is a candid portrait of 96-year-old Adolph Vandertie and his final confessions of a life filled with joy, heartache and addiction. Sweeping through the Great Depression, the film chronicles America’s downfall and return to being the strongest nation in the world. It’s an iconic tale that explores Adolph’s journey to achieve personal redemption by creating an astonishing collection – beautiful in their minute details and the cleverness of their design. This simple act of whittling found objects becomes a beacon of hope for one man while capturing the true spirit of America.

About the Discussion Facilitators
Jim Rivett
President and Creative Director
Arketype, Inc.A native of Green Bay, Rivett is a graduate of the University of Wisconsin—Whitewater where he earned a bachelor of arts degree in painting and drawing and a minor in television and film production. He then studied at the New York School of Visual Arts under Milton Glaser.

In 2007, at the invitation of Wisconsin Lieutenant Governor Barbara Lawton, Rivett was asked to serve on the newly formed Wisconsin Task Force on Arts and Creativity in Education. The group’s mission is to ensure that a creative workforce and entrepreneurial talent is cultivated throughout the state to compete in a 21st century global economy (www.creative.wisconsin.gov).

All along with his passion for painting, drawing and graphic design was a love of film and the goal to create dynamic, compelling work in animation, live action and documentary film. In 2005 he began work on fulfilling this passion by forming Arketype Entertainment – a division of Arketype Inc – and bringing together an ensemble of video producers, animators, editors and musicians.

Event Overview
Rock your Audience with Power, Passion and Purpose
There are legitimate reasons people (including leaders) fear public speaking more than death. We fear we’re exposing ourselves to scrutiny of our knowledge, ideas and private ideals. While it’s important to prepare a speech or presentation by crafting the wording, many professionals don’t realize one of the keys to engaging their audience; that speaking from their passion, framing their speech around their message and who they are as a person, is what moves their audience. If you don’t look and sound confident, others won’t be confident in you. In our session together, we’ll explore and practice the components that empower your voice and infuse your passion:

  • Examine common myths and truths that keep people in fear versus empowerment
  • Break through your fears by putting them to the test
  • Tap into your unique message based on your life experience and what makes YOU awesome
  • Participate in fun, experiential exercises that move you out of your comfort zone
  • Acquire experience from constructive feedback

You will want to attend if you:

  • Desire to improve your professional and personal confidence through public speaking exercises
  • Feel an inner drive to express yourself more fully
  • Shy away from speaking opportunities
  • Are looking to change your public speaking fears to power and confidence

Take your public speaking to the next level to influence broader audiences
