Art’s Live Programs

In his speaking programs, including workshops, seminars and keynotes, Art helps leaders learn to survive and thrive during periods of significant market, industry and company change. Art, a long-time software industry executive and MBA educator and executive coach, tackles the critical and timely need for all of us in our careers and in our organizations to adapt and adjust to seize opportunities, respond to threats and survive and succeed in this era of change.

These interactive, engaging workshop, seminar or keynote speaking events challenge participants to think and act differently by applying the Level-Up Skill Sets—sets of behaviors drawn from the latest research in neuro-leadership and motivation science —to their daily work and on-going self-development.

Whether your focus is rethinking strategy or reinventing leadership for a new era in your firm, a speaking or workshop program with Art will leave the group’s brains boiling with ideas and tools to tackle the challenges in front of them.
