  1. Hello Heidi,

    I would like to propose a couple of possible keynote presentation topics for the upcoming IFMA conference;
    Innovation in a Time of Transition
    Organizational Change That Sticks

    I have given keynote presentations for a number of large conferences world-wide including the Precast Concrete Association, American Society for Quality’s World, Lean/Six Sigma and Service Quality conferences; European Quality Congresses and Excellence Finland. In addition to my speaking engagements I continue, through my management consulting firm, to work with various sizes of manufacturers and real estate companies. This practical experience provides me with many stories that I weave into my presentations to ensure they are content rich, based on research and provide practical solutions to today’s issues. My presentations are always highly rated by the delegates. I am a Certified Professional Speaker, among a group of less than 600 worldwide, as recognized by the Global Speakers Network.

    Please advise what process you follow in selecting your keynote presenters.
