Speakers to Like - Opening Keynote

Randy Pennington is the author of On My Honor, a book which proclaims that integrity is the key to effective business relations. Pennington is an intelligent, articulate presenter who mixes intensity with levity, and discipline with compassion. He urges and cajoles his audiences in a way that invites high responsiveness.

Pennington has lots of stories to draw from, from the corporate world and from international organizations. His book On My Honor draws in part from his participation in Scouts International (known in the United States as the Boy Scouts and Girl Scouts of America) and the deep and penetrating lessons he learned as a scout leader and scoutmaster.

Pennington has wowed audiences from coast to coast including... and in several foreign countries. Hearing him, participants routinely report that they felt as if they had the opportunity to watch a top speaking professional in action.

How Og Mandino Inspired Me - Opening Keynote

I'm lying on my bed during a rainy day in November, decades ago, in a rut. I've been unemployed for four months and I'm waiting to hear on several job opportunities but nothing has come through. I start reading The Greatest Salesman in the World by Og Mandino and immediately find the motivation to take a shower, get dressed, drive to the nearby consulting firm (which is my best prospect) call on the CEO and convince him that day that I should be hired. Two weeks later I got the job.
