Keynote Speaker: Margaret A Johnson, P.E.
Presentation: Fairy Tales and Fables – Lessons for Work and Fun
Our favorite childhood fairy tales and fables come back to provide lessons we are able to apply specifically to our projects, and work management in general, for greater effectiveness and productivity. With lessons like –
· risk taking and the steps to being more successful from The Emperor’s New Clothes;
· being proactive or reactive and how to keep an eye open for possibilities from The Mule in the Well;
· taking responsibility for our situation in the Wizard of Oz;
· paying attention to other people’s opinions and the trouble it can cause in The Miller, His Son, and Their Mule;
· and the problem with assumptions about ourselves and our capabilities, others and their strengths or weaknesses, and situations that can or cannot be changed in the One Eyed Doe.
You are sure to enjoy a storied evening with practical actions to follow!
Pre-Dinner Speaker (Tutorial 1) Main Room: Efrain Solis, Senior Project Manager for Memorial Hermann Sugar Land Hospital
Presentation: The Marshmallow Challenge
Building effective teams is far more than having the right people in the room with you, it’s the way we task, delegate and communicate with one another. The Marshmallow Challenge in this setting is a designed team building & familiarizing activity that will allow you to work with your peers. In the span of 20 minutes you will work together to create something unique with limited supplies and the added pressure of competing against your fellow attendees.
