Mike Hourigan - 'Communication: It’s not part of it it’s all of it!'
The biggest time waster is miscommunication. In many work environments it seems like the biggest problems emerge from the simplest communication mistakes. Up to 75 percent of your day is spent communicating and good communication skills are part of everything. Learn how to deal with some of the most difficult communication problems encountered every day.

Sarah Sladek, XYZ University - 'Generations @ work'
Organisations today find themselves managing radically different generations. Engaging younger generations has emerged as a major challenge. Learn how to foster a culture of collaboration, acceptance and productivity. Measure and bridge talent gaps and inspire each generation for greater success.

Inspire 2016 will feature a pair of social networking options: bowling, billiards and arcade games at Sky Deck Sports Grille & Lanes at the Mall of America Tuesday evening and a golf scramble Wednesday afternoon at The Wilds Golf Club to raise funds for GEAPS Foundation.  The Mall of America and Sky Deck social event are family-friendly activities.
