Stop Trying, Start Doing

Featuring Guest Speaker Marcus Allen 

This program will give you new motivation and appreciation for your life and career goals through the lessons that Marcus Allen learned during his summiting of Mt. Kilimanjaro last December in 2022, and as the CEO of Big Brothers Big Sisters Independence Region.

Audience Members Will Learn: 

  • How to allow themselves or their team to take ownership of their work through self-awareness
  • How the human mind works in challenging situations, and how through practice, courage, and failing forward, anyone can reach their goals
  • A foundational understanding that will equip them with the knowledge to be confident in their respective journeys and improve their productivity, as well as the bottom line of their companies
