Robyn Benincasa
Building World Class Teams: How to Achieve Breakthrough Performance Through Collaboration, Creativity and a Culture of ONE

How do individual team members become great teammates? What if your teams were not only driven to achieve goals with each other but FOR each other? Whether you're a one-person communications shop or a department of many, teamwork with colleagues is key to advancing the success of a district or organization.

As a two-time World Champion Adventure racer, San Diego Firefighter and CNN Hero, Robyn Benincasa knows a thing or two about creating Human Synergy, or as she puts it, "that magic that allows ordinary people to accomplish extraordinary things together."

Benincasa's innovative team-building strategies offer practical tools to adapt, overcome and win as ONE, against all odds. Hear inspired ideas about how to raise your team to the next level, both personally and professionally, and take home simple and easily applied skills that will cultivate deep and lasting connections.

Tuesday General Session (July 18)

Michael Bonner
Now What?

How do we increase efficiency and decrease burnout in our school districts? How do we stay motivated in the face of adversity and constant change? Drawing on his experiences from the frontlines of the classroom, Michael Bonner will affirm how important our work is in education ... and how we must forge ahead despite the detractors. 

As seen on The Ellen Show, NBC Nightly News and Time for Kids, Michael Bonner is an energizing voice not only in education, but for his generation. He is a visionary leader who strives to create a positive mindset among his audiences. 

The Chief Executive Officer of Bonnerville, an organization that works to provide self-care experiences for educators around the world, Bonner is also a 4th grade social studies teacher and 6th grade reading teacher at the Ron Clark Academy in Atlanta.
