From Zero to Everyday Hero: It’s All in Your Head—Remember Your Power to Make a Difference
  MONDAY KEYNOTE      Amy Dee, National Motivational Speaker & Author

Amy Dee headshotWho you decide to be in this world matters. That is why—with the right attitude—no job is too small, and profound satisfaction can come from finding meaning in everyday actions. 

This uplifting keynote will make you laugh while discovering delightfully practical ways to develop kindness, positivity, and deal more effectively with negative people and situations. Learn how your brain affects your behavior and influences people around you. Discover how to take responsibility for your actions and attitude. Explore how to bring a positive attitude from “inside” rather than trying to extract it from external events during the day. Realize that there are thousands of unheralded acts of kindness for every act of violence we hear about.
