In this keynote session, you will hear the insight and wisdom of Bob Seelert, a turnaround expert, who has revived the fortunes of businesses and brands in the US and abroad. When leading in tough times, leaders need to focus on bringing out the best from employees and on making tough decisions that will position their company for future success. Specifically Mr. Seelert will argue that leaders must:
Get the truth out; Don’t pretend things will get better
Think long term, while acting short term
Get out with your customers; listen and learn
Reframe the value of your products for the new environment
Mr. Seelert’s fundamental lesson is his philosophy of management is that to succeed in business — and in life — you have to know where you are going, have the courage to take the first step to get there, and constantly hone the means by which you will reach your destination.
