Creating and Leveraging Opportunity
by Liz Strauss
The Monday after SOBCon NW, last September, Terry and I started working, talking, and thinking together. We were bound and determined to incorporate some of that community feeling into planning Chicago 2012. Within hours we were really clear on our vision and our mission. What followed were a few, focused planning sessions and phone calls to outstanding community members. It’s all come together so well that it’s almost scary.
The theme this year for Chicago 2012 is Creating and Leveraging Opportunity: Strategy and Execution. We’ll be discussing and applying qualitative and quantitative critical thinking. We’ll focus on the seven keys to strategy and execution: Mission & Vision, Position, Conditions, Decisions, Networks, and Systems. Each presentation, model, and mastermind session will change the way you see yourself and your business. The interviews lined up are stellar (no kidding). The interactive sessions will keep you in the room.
Look forward to more wisdom and thought-provoking questions from these successful and outstanding business people–Tim Sanders, Rick Turoczy, Les McKeown, Katherine Burdick, Carol Roth, Laura Fitton, Rick Calvert, Lisa Horner, Gary W. Goldstein, Steve Farber, Terry “Starbucker” St. Marie, myself, and a few others that will be equally outstanding!
And we’ll be meeting at the Speakeasy again with some cool people. Can’t wait to see you!
