OPENING KEYNOTE
Peak Performance
Anthony Bourke, Mach 2 Consulting

All great leaders have a system for driving peak performance. This hard-charging, high-impact session will offer straightforward, critical tools that U.S. fighter pilots employ to lead their wingmen into the demanding environment of aerial combat. 

Learn how the best fighter squadrons and the best businesses in the world hire future leaders, how they properly train those individuals, and promote a process of continuous improvement to stay one step ahead of the competition. 

GENERAL SESSION
Trucking Advocacy in the Trump Era: Win, Lose or Draw?
Bill Sullivan, American Trucking Associations

The 2016 election brought new faces and priorities to the White House, Congress and federal agencies. The 2018 election saw the resurgence of democrats in the U.S. House of Representatives and many state offices. Regulatory reform and reduction of business burdens were promised. 

How has it actually played out? What can trucking businesses expect in the future? Bill Sullivan, Executive VP of Advocacy at ATA will pull back the curtain and provide an insider's look at trucking wins, losses and their additional impacts on state legislatures. 

CEO PANEL

Kyle Kottke, Kottke Trucking, Kari Rihm, Rihm Kenworth, Jason Michels, Long Haul Trucking, Todd Gilbert, Valley Cartage

Taking a big idea and turning it into your corporate reality takes strategy, planning and pure grit, but most of all, vision. This CEO panel will share their experiences in taking their companies through visionary processes that have delivered dramatic growth and success. 

BREAKOUT SESSION A 
Fuel Efficiency, Technology, GHG3 2020 Mandate
Mike Roeth, North American Council for Freight Efficiency 

Mike Roeth leads the North American Council for Freight Efficiency, which has the mission of doubling freight efficiencies.

BREAKOUT SESSION B
Business Continuity Planning
Brenda Fake, O-2 Optimizing Organizations

One of the most important things to influence employee satisfaction and performance is how much they trust that corporate operations will continue to matter what. In the absence of information, people assume the worse. Remove the questions and the doubts!
