Leading Your Company In A Digital World

For companies of any size to thrive in our increasingly fast-paced and connected world, they need young dynamic leaders who can lead them through massive change. Under 40 leaders have all positively impacted their organizations despite often having less experience than others on the team, but what is the most effective way to get others in your company on board? It's not about having a winning personality, and it's something anyone can tackle with the right approach.

Your company needs you desperately. Most of the tools, solutions, and processes creating success today are completely foreign to older managers, and fear of the unknown too often hinders progress. Mike and Kevin will share insights, stories, and pinpoint areas of focus to keep you and your company ahead of the pack in order to grow your market share, profits, and increase your personal fulfillment.

At the Intersection of Leadership and Change

In a world where constant change has become the new norm, the importance of being able to lead your organization properly through the never-ending turmoil associated with such change cannot be overstated. This program examines the stresses imposed on an organization by repeated change, and explores the unique leadership challenges associated with the market driven need for flexibility and adaptation. The five key roles of leaders are discussed in detail, along with specific tactics for achieving success in motivating and inspiring team members.

Contemporary Architecture: Making It Real

Contemporary architecture reflects new, unique directions in design that are desired by first-time home buyers and move-down Boomer buyers alike. This presentation will help you to develop a base of knowledge on how to create authentic contemporary home designs by being thorough and complete in both your design and building process. This process includes thinking through every material and detail, working to combine a casual way of living with technology and places for art and creativity, and bringing the outdoors in so the house lives beyond its walls.

12:15 pm

Awards Luncheon

Luncheon Keynote: Dave Evans

Designing Your Life Author and Stanford University Adjunct Professor Dave Evans will show us how design thinking can help us create a life that is both meaningful and fulfilling, regardless of who or where we are, what we do or have done for a living, or how young or old we are. The same design thinking responsible for amazing technology, products, and spaces can be used to design and build your career and your life, a life of fulfillment and joy, constantly creative and productive, one that always holds the possibility of surprise.

Disruption and the Future of Home Building

The word disruption conjures images of tech startups and Silicon Valley venture capitalists. Everyone's talking about it, and wondering which industry will be hit next. In fact, Fortune Magazine puts home construction at the top of its list of industries ripe for disruption. Given that 75% of the Fortune 500 in 2020 will be names we've never heard of, how can home builders embrace change and continue to thrive? The answer is in the experience. Building a "dream home" should be one of the most exhilarating experiences of one's life. But that's not how most buyers describe it. So what is it that's keeping us from delivering such greatness? During this inspiring presentation you'll learn why the customer experience matters now more than ever, and see how advances in technology and innovation in The Age of the Customer will transform the experience (and our industry) as we know it.
