SNEC is proud to announce our Keynote Speakers:

  • Stephen M. R. Covey is the New York Times and #1 Wall Street Journal bestselling author of The SPEED of Trust, a groundbreaking and paradigm-shifting book that challenges our age-old assumption that trust is merely a soft, social virtue and instead demonstrates that trust is a hard-edged, economic driver. Join us to hear more on The SPEED of Trust and why Stephen advocates that the ability to establish, grow, extend, and restore trust with all stakeholders is the critical leadership competency.
  • Closing our professional development day, Bill Fournet will describe how we might manage projects in the future in his keynote entitled PM Next Generation: How Minecraft and Gamification are Shaping PM. This session will share the latest research from various thought leaders in the areas of globalization and hyper-connectedness, while looking at the forces shaping our children today - Minecraft, gaming, Facebook, speed of change, and values - that will affect the tools and perspectives of future project managers.
