The Thoughtfully Ruthless Leader: The Key to Exponential Growth.

Our speaker, Val Wright, will answer an important question about why can some leaders grow their company at a rapid pace yet others flounder.

If you are thoughtfully ruthless with your time, energy and resources you will accelerate innovation and catapult yourself ahead of your peers and competition.
You will learn: Five Secrets to growing your company exponentially.
Three top mistakes leaders make when leading a hyper-growth company.
Proven techniques that you can apply that will improve your reputation and business results.
Whether your start-up idea is still in your head, or you lead a company of 5,50 or 500 people you will hear lessons from Xbox to Zappos and Bezos to Ballmer that you can apply tomorrow.  
Val is a recognized leadership and innovation expert.  Working with Xbox, Microsoft, Amazon, LinkedIn, and PopCap Games, she has spent the last 20 years partnering with executives to accelerate growth, innovation and gain market superiority.
Val was an integral part of the Xbox leadership team coaching leaders through strategic changes and accelerating results.  Val’s creative energetic style produces results, she designed an innovation program for Xbox where the first idea of Kinect was formed and went on to lead the organization development and change management plan for Kinect from incubation to launch, which sold 20M devices worldwide.   Known for telling leaders what they need to hear, not what they want to hear.

    Acoustics remain a challenge at Copa Vita. Acoustic damping wall art was suggested months ago but no resolution.

    The contents sounded more like 'efficient leader', rather than 'ruthless leader'. That being said, the term 'ruthless' probably helped raise participant curiosity.
