Keynote Speakers

Will Bowen, Humorous Motivational Speaker - A Complaint-Free World

Complaining is an epidemic that is destroying our happiness, relationships, health, and success. The problem is that most people aren’t even aware when they complain. In 2006, Will Bowen challenged a handful of people to try and break the habit of chronic complaining by going 21 days without uttering a single complaint. That simple idea exploded into a worldwide movement of more than 13 million followers and has been featured on Oprah, NBC’s Today Show, CBS Sunday Morning, the ABC Evening News, Dr. Oz, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, People magazine, O magazine, and Chicken Soup for the Soul. 

NSPRA President Lesley Bruinton, APR - Keys to Amplifying Your System's Story

Through the use of creative storytelling, this session offers five keys to amplifying your system’s story. It’s work that builds relationships, gets results, and earns recognition.
