Competing in a Chaotic Economy
Presented by: Todd Buchholz, economist and former White House director of economic policy
The go-go days of the 1990s turned into the go-sideways days of the 2000's. What's next? Will the crash in commodity prices and interest rates unhinge the economy, or propel it forward? Can the Fed keep the economy recovering in the Janet Yellen era? How will the presidential election campaign shake the economy? Todd Buchholz, who led the White House Energy Strategy, will help you figure out whether OPEC and Russia can tighten energy supplies again or whether a revolution in natural gas will reinvigorate U.S. factories. Learn how the "scissors economy" opens up new business and investment opportunities. Today might be the very best—or the very worst—time to finance a loan. By "connecting the dots" of the world economy, Todd Buchholz will help you develop a timely vision for the economy, your business, and the stock market.

The Power of Consistency
Presented by: Weldon Long, entrepreneur, sales expert and author of the NY Times bestseller, The Power of Consistency – Prosperity Mindset Training for Sales and Business Professionals
During this inspiring keynote, Weldon talks about the sales process he created to catapult himself from a homeless shelter to building a $20,000,000 company in just 5 years. He will share his incredible RISC sales process (Relationship, Investigate, Solution, Conclusion). This proprietary process leads customers down the "sales hallway" to proactively close the doors to the most common objections before they ever get brought up- "I need three bids", I need a cheaper prince" and " I need to think about it" - This program finishes with the four most powerful words in sales, "Will you trust me?" Attendees will leave with strategies they can apply immediately to dramatically increase margins and close more business.
