Saturday's Speaker

Lowry Olafson

"If Not You, Then Who?"

It is said that our sense of contribution is our strongest motivating force – that our deepest fulfillment comes when we connect the dots between the work we do each day and the greater contributions we want to make in the world. In this thought-provoking keynote, Lowry weaves stories and songs with a message that listening to our hearts and tuning into our life's purpose are both essential and achievable elements that make our work and our lives richly rewarding.

Lowry Olafson is a performing songwriter and keynote speaker who has released nine albums and toured the globe. His concerts are peppered with stories that offer a window into his songs and invite listeners of all ages to connect to the stories of their own lives.

Sunday's Speaker

Diane Rolston

"Unleash Your Dynamic You™: Secrets to Success, Confidence & Leadership"

Many people wish things could be different—that they could step into what they truly want and be more confident about it. They wish obstacles felt smaller and goals felt within reach. And they wish they had a reliable solution so nothing would get in their way.

Dynamic Women® and leadership expert, Diane Rolston, will share her powerful MOVEMENT to bring you not only the success you want but also the secret code to increase your influence, impact, and income. And the best part is you can apply it beyond your career to ALL areas of your life.

As an award-winning coach, Diane empowers professionals to increase their clarity, confidence and action. The same will be true for you—at the end of Diane’s keynote, you’ll also have the tools to stop wishing and be unapologetically YOU.
