Change: If You Don't Like Change, You are Going to Hate Extinction
Change is a constant. You can either choose to embrace it or watch as you organization disintegrates right before your eyes. Some people embrace change. Some people just go with the flow and deal with it only when they have to. Then there are those few, die hard, stubborn, inflexible, obstinate people out there, who are going to fight changing to the bitter end. In today’s accelerating pace of technological change, if you plan on WINNING, SUCCEEDING, and STAYING ON TOP, you better pay attention to the ever-changing landscape.

It puts you in a better frame of mind and you now start seeing how you can make things work rather than dwell in the debilitating mood of self-defeat; changing your mind becomes and energizing force.

Robert Stevenson What an incredible guy For someone as experienced and well travelled as he, he is an incredibly hard working, no nonsense, positive energy to be around. Many of the executives noted they have never engaged with a speaker who did research as diligently as Rob did Rob took more than a hundred pages of notes and spoke to our sales teams for HOURS For someone not familiar with aviation (at least at the beginning of the process) he could legitimately start a job today if he wanted to Rob’s presentation was engaging, thought provoking, and delivered with a great sense of humor He hit the nail on the head with some of the statements about the inner workings of our teams, and regarding some of the challenges we face as a company, as well as on a personal level He sent us (very useful) materials after the event, which many of us have already printed it out and posted on our walls as a daily reminder. Rob joined us for dinner the night prior to the event, and again the night of the event, which I think is something you should recommend your clients do moving forward. It allows for the guests and speaker to connect on a more personal level He got a chance (and went out of his way) to speak one on one with as many attendees as he could during his time with us. We will definitely be working with him in the future.
