Enjoying Your Destination Focused Journey as You Sail into Tomorrow, with Keynote Al Walker: In 2020 we all experienced what sailors have dreaded for centuries, being stranded in a dead sea with no wind for their sails. COVID took the wind out of a lot of our sails and left us stranded. As we come out of this pandemic, we need to focus on a renewed and hopefully, extraordinary journey. We need a new wind, and we need to chart a new course to navigate our way. During his time with us, Al will help us explore the 5 specific steps needed to fill our sails and keep our ship on the right course. You'll have the opportunity to laugh and learn as you leave this session with a renewed excitement for helping yourself and others become more engaged and effective in the years ahead. We all know we need to turn our focus to the future and all the wonderful opportunities it will provide. Al promises that we will also have a Mari-time together.
