Our Conference Speakers

Dr. Elizabeth Lombardo, best-selling author, celebrity psychologist, international speaker and authority on leadership, success, happiness and personal and professional growth.  Her presentation, Leadership from the Inside Out, will provide practical tools for boosting leadership performance and countering stress and burnout.

Global speaker, best-selling author and mental health advocate Kevin Hines with a gripping presentation, Cracked Not Broken: The Art of Living Mentally Well.  Kevin will share his personal journey with bipolar disorder and the story of his unlikely survival and strong will to live after attempting to take his life by jumping from the Golden Gate bridge.

Steve Pemberton, author, speaker and Chief Human Resources Officer for Globoforce, will share his deeply personal story about defying seemingly insurmountable odds in his session, A Chance in the World: Transforming Adversity into Action.  Overcoming abuse and neglect as an orphan in foster care, he became a trail-blazing corporate executive, enlightened diversity leader, visionary youth advocate and acclaimed speaker. His session, based on his best-selling memoir, recounts his triumphant life journey and drive to become a man of resilience, determination and vision.
