Morning Keynote Address: "The Imposter Syndrome"

Cybele Negris, President CEO & Co-Founder of Webnames.ca

As a serial entrepreneur, successful female founder & CEO in the technology industry and seasoned board member in numerous organizations, some would consider Cybele Negris a model of success. However, she had a secret she was hiding until she declared to the world in an article for Business in Vancouver, that she’s the “ultimate impostor”. 

In this keynote, you’ll discover:

- Negris' struggle with imposter syndrome, what it is and how it can affect your journey to success,

- How overcoming fear and adversity can help your career whether you're male or female; and

- How you know when you've finally had these feelings beat.


Afternoon Keynote Address: "The Great Rewrite"

Leonard Brody, Business and Technology Visionary

We are living in a unique moment in history, when revolutionary change in all sectors is occurring at a frenzied pace.

This massive scale of disruption has understandably left organizations on shaky footing, struggling to engage consumers and employees alike and stay relevant.

Those that learn to adapt, those that allow themselves to be “rewritten” for the modern day, will survive and prosper. Those that do not will collapse.

Leonard Brody explains how to deal with the questions the future holds, and how organizations can harness the uncertainty they’re faced with and turn it into excitement, innovation, and success.
