Morning Keynote

David Marquet imagines a work place where everyone engages and contributes their full intellectual capacity, a place where people are healthier and happier because they have more control over their work–a place where everyone is a leader.

David will give attendees a fresh perspective on leadership, exploring the negative impacts of what seems on the surface to be ‘good’ leadership.
