ACHIEVE THE IMPOSSIBLE followed by the Just Networking Wine Tasting

3:00 PM - 7:30 PM
Vantage Venues, 150 King Street West
MPI Toronto

Session: ACHIEVE THE IMPOSSIBLE followed by the Just Networking Wine Tasting

The events world is a truly competitive, and constantly changing environment. Just like an Olympic athlete and support team, you need to be strategic to reach your finish line. In this keynote, Jeremiah Brown challenges common notions of what it means to lead and to be led in the pursuit of excellence. He shows how to adapt to forces outside of one’s control and stay the course when the pressure is on, all while encouraging a healthy dose of self-compassion and humility. Using vivid real-life Olympic setbacks, failures, and ultimate success, Jeremiah illuminates the true markers for success in any competitive setting.

Session Outcomes:

  • Inspire audiences to dig a little deeper, go a little further, and reap greater rewards
  • Redefine resilience to strengthen one’s ability to endure massive change
  • Learn a new framework for managing interpersonal conflict and team cohesion challenges
  • Discover the one key shift in mindset that will keep people committed to the goal for the long term.
  • A powerful reinforcement of the need to stretch individual and organizational goals

The final portion of the workshop will include a panel made up of MPI Toronto Chapter members. Moderated by Jeremiah, our panelists will share real and current examples of achieving the impossible.

This session qualifies as a credit towards CMP CEU Domain A - Strategic Planning
