Erica will help time-starved leaders in attendance understand how to sharpen their connectional intelligence skills to become a super-connector who will accelerate innovation and break down silos to keep teams aligned, motivated and accountable.  

On day three, attendees will hear from Ben Nemtin, a mental health advocate who believes that all humans have ups and downs. Ben will share his powerful story and the journey of “The Buried Life” initiative which grew from making 100 impossible dreams possible into a global movement.
