Energy, moral courage & finding meaning—Three keynote speakers & themes


 By Lisa Foss Olson |  October 2, 2020  |  All members


Care Providers of Minnesota’s 72nd Convention & Exposition features three keynote speakers, during our live, premium days.

Starting at 9:00 AM on November 16, (and remember—it’s LIVE), Kristen Brown’s presentation, Charged leadership: Energize your work & life, will provide you with ideas and fresh motivation to shift your energy and help you and your team grow. You will learn about the seven key energy centers that drive your impact and influence at work and home: motivation, creativity, confidence, relationships, communication, strategy, and vision. Take a sneak peek at Kristen’s presentation here.

Our Tuesday, November 17 keynote presentation—also starting at 9:00 AM—features Dr. Charles “Chad” Weinstein. Chad is the founder and president of Ethical Leaders in Action—and familiar to many members as the lead program instructor of our Leading4Life Fellowship Program. His presentation, Moral courage in challenging times, will focus on building our own moral courage and how we can foster a spirit of moral courage in our teams and organizations. Real-life examples will be used to illustrate techniques and concepts that leaders can practice to assure that we are prepared to do what is right in those moments of truth.

Our final live day—November 18—features Kevin Kling—well-known author, playwright, and “Minneapolis Story Laureate.” Kevin’s near fatal motorcycle accident in 2001 left him partially paralyzed; however, it expanded his heart in ways he could never have imagined. Kevin’s presentation, Lost & Found: Finding meaning in times of challenge, also kicks off at 9:00 AM. In his inspiring and uplifting keynote, Kevin will share his own and others’ healing stories.

We hope you will join us each day for these live keynote presentations that will uplift and inspire you—as well as all the education offered over the course of our expanded, virtual convention & exposition. Details of all the speakers and presenters can be found in our CONVENTION GUIDE
