8:30 am - Opening with Tessa

8:50 am - Lorna Weston-Smyth


Why do some people consistently outperform others when it comes to sales and business success? It may seem like they are just luckier than others or more gifted but in reality, luck and giftedness has little to do with it. The good news is, success is not dependent on outside conditions or circumstances beyond your control. Success resides within YOU!

Success is a combination of things and all are within your control. Nothing determines your success more than the Success Equation. And when you build your business on these three fundamental factors, you cannot help but succeed.

“Life is a combination lock; your job is to find the right numbers, in the right order, so you can have anything you want.” – Brian Tracy

9:40 am - Cheraldean Duhaney


Having faced a life-threatening situation stirred a new and different approach to life for Cheraldean. She embraces every wakening moment with gratitude while living each day as if it’s the last day. Cheraldean’s experience will grip your heart and impact every life.

Cheraldean’s hope is that individuals leaving the conference will be empowered. They will portray themselves as unique, living their best life now and not waiting for a trigger effect. They will be leaving wanting to live an intentionally grateful life.

10:25 am - Break

10:45 - Leadership Game

The John Maxwell Leadership Game is a comprehensive game based on the teachings of John Maxwell. The game helps organizations and individuals discover their leadership strengths and weaknesses. You will be introduced to a new assessment tool that is unlike any other. The Game is fun and engaging, yet it challenges the participants to have open discussions about leadership principles and values. It is designed to help leaders uncover gaps and areas for improvement within their leadership teams.

11:35 - Rhonda Fairweather


It can be disheartening to hear “no” over and over again in your career, or to hit unexpected roadblocks; the key to success is learning from those experiences and persevering despite them. The good news is that perseverance is a skill that can be learned, practiced and mastered. By learning how to overcome obstacles, we can all do bigger and better things in this world. Get ready to grow your grit and be steadfast in working towards your goals!

12:20 - Lunch

1:20 pm - Ton van Nieuwkerk


The DISC Personality Profile is the universal language of behavior.

Understanding personality styles helps you become a better communicator, minimize or prevent conflicts, appreciate the differences in others and positively influence those around you.

2:20 pm - Dr. Floyd Spence


Why settle for average when you can become Phenomenal! Dr. Floyd shares his insight and high-performance formula for success, so that you may unlock your greatness, unleash your full potential and live your best life possible.

3:05 pm - Dessert and coffee break

3:30 - Karen Fasulo


This is a personal journey that will touch on desire, perseverance, and acceptance.   Through her parent's journey of her daughter's Autism diagnosis, Karen will share how she handled that news, supported her daughter and how she is right now.  The lessons learned on dealing with fears, limitations and letting go can resonate with so many areas of one's life.  Karen hopes you will take away from this talk that when an unexpected twist is introduced into your life, there are always other options in handling the news. 

4:15 - Tessa Kampen


Business, according to Simon Sinek, is an infinite game and if we want to outlast our competition, we must learn how to shift effectively. The ability and willingness to make leadership changes that will positively enhance organizational and personal growth will be key to your ability to outlast. Are you willing to do what it takes?
