Leadership for the Future: Becoming a Mindful Leader
Presented by Matt Thieleman, Founder, Golden Bristle

Technology is eating the world. And that’s OK...but in order to be a successful leader tomorrow and beyond, we’re going to need to be equipped to handle everything coming our way.
What do we need? Mindful leaders: Fully present, aware of themselves and their impact on others, and focused on achieving the goals of their team.
In this session, we'll discuss the characteristics of a mindful leader, tools for becoming more mindful and how you can lead your team to success. If all goes right, you'll leave both inspired relaxed (no that's not a contradiction!) 

Schedule: Doors open at 11:00 am for registration and networking. Buffet lunch begins at 11:20 am, and the presentation starts promptly at 12:00 noon.

He spent the first 9 years of his career helping businesses and organizations to communicate like humans in their marketing, and has worked with Fortune 500 companies and world-renowned universities to single-owner small businesses. He’ll tell you he started meditating before he even knew what it was, and thanks the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for the inspiration.
