Presenter: Karen Brown

Anything is Possible – Karen Brown is living proof. “I’m nothing special, not talented, had not done anything remarkable in my life. Until, I competed in the Ironman World Championships.” What is an Ironman? It is a 2.4-mile ocean swim, 112-mile bike ride, and a 26.2-mile run, completed in one day. Some say it’s the toughest race in the world; every year 90,000 athletes around the world vie for 2,000 spots, mostly pros. And although Karen was an athlete, she wasn’t a triathlete or a swimmer, and she was pursuing this gargantuan dream at age 44. Every member will relate to Karen’s story of challenges, victories, failures and ultimate success. Karen draws upon her 30+ years in business and her personal story as an athlete to share the keys to personal and professional success. This inspirational and interactive presentation leaves the audience motivated and armed with scientifically proven tools and a road map for success.

Aretha was great at asking for r.e.s.p.e.c.t. But women may find themselves asking for balance–just a little, which can be the difference in leading a healthy, content life.

Is it work, family, soccer practice, or caring for troubled teens and aging parents? Lori gets you laughing, and shows you how to get more satisfaction from your life.

Oh the Things You Can Thunk!
Presenter: Karen Green

A Dr. Seuss inspired look at creativity and the wondrous workings of our brains.

Whether a child or adult, our ability to imagine is one of the most remarkable aspects of the human brain. We are also illogical, irrational creatures whose brains serve us well and not so well in a thousand ways, especially in the business world. Unfettered thinking is a critical skill for today’s business leaders. And, even though we have the ability to think just about anything imaginable, our brains need prompts to help us use this skill well.

  • What imaginings will help us thrive as individuals and as an organization?
  • When should we use the power of our brains to generate more ideas versus execute on what we already have?
  • How can we engage the brains of others to create new neural connections that contribute to success? 

As the good Dr. said, “You have brains in your head. You have feet in your shoes. You can steer yourself any direction you choose.” To that I would add, “You’ll steer a lot better and get where you want if you ponder all the things you can thunk!”
