Opening Keynote: Excellence Is A Choice Embracing The “Now Normal” Kaplan MobrayKaplan Mobray Best-Selling Author, Motivational Speaker and Career Consultant


The hybrid, current, and post pandemic world will be driven by a new normal. Your ability to create new, innovative, and often unconventional ways to lead others, drive growth, inspire new learning, solve immediate problems, and deliver new results will shape your personal growth and the health of your career in the years ahead.


But without embracing your “Now Normal”, you may find yourself unprepared to meet the unpredictable demands of today’s changing landscape. So are you prepared to embrace your excellence, change agility, resilience and uncertainty as a new normal for growth? What is your “Now Normal”? What is your “Now Mindset”? What Makes You Indispensable to your teams, your organization, your clients, and stakeholders? And what steps will you take to seize amazing opportunities and create new value from what you do?


This interactive, thought-provoking, insightful, and engaging presentation celebrates the power of leadership excellence, change agility, and the transformation that comes with being intentional about personal and professional growth.
