Opening Keynote: Start Again

Lucas G Irwin
6:00pm – 6:45pm


How mastering the art of getting back on track can help us reach our goals faster. Inevitably, most of our plans and goals will encounter setbacks and diversions; despite our best intentions and planning. Whether the plan is to lose 20lbs or increase sales by 20%, success will largely be determined by how we respond when we find ourselves drifting away from the path. This critical space can be brief and stress-free or it can be indefinite and emotionally draining; most of which will be determined by our mindset and capacity to start again.
