Jeff Campbell
Former CEO
Burger King

The Art of Mentoring

Jeff Campbell, former CEO of Burger King and ex-Chairman of the Pillsbury Restaurant Group, will talk about being a mentor and share his personal journey with being a mentor and being a mentee. He will talk about the importance of listening, control vs discovery and the rewards from being both a mentor and a mentee.   

Today, Jeff teaches at SDSU and gives back a lot of his time mentoring C-suite execs and leaders with his knowledge and background, through Chairman's RoundTable.

Michael Levin
Custom Solutions Inc.

Creating an Entrepreneurial Workplace®

Michael’s talk on “Creating an Entrepreneurial Workplace®” is about his powerful philosophy that creates ownership and empowerment throughout an organization. Your people will not only embrace change they will actually lead and drive that change.

Daron K. Roberts
Former NFL Coach and Author

The Art of Risk-Taking

Promoting a "fail fast" culture sounds easy, but empowering your team to embrace an innovative mindset can be difficult. This talk does both. Daron K. Roberts is a former NFL coach and author of, “Call an Audible” (Greenleaf 2017). “Call an Audible” was named a #1 New Release and Best Seller by Amazon, and Sports Illustrated selected the book as one of its “Best Sports Business Books of 2017.” 

After the opening keynotes, attendees will have the opportunity to attend a variety of breakout sessions throughout the day.

Each hour offers different workshops that focus on Strategy & Planning, The Customer Experience, Marketing & Communications, Human Resources, Professional Development, and Technology. Attendees will gain valuable knowledge that they can take back to the (home) office and implement the very next day.

Space is limited at each live session and is on a first come basis. All sessions will be recorded to view at a later time.
