Presentation Description Mary offers advice from the smartest man she ever knew—her father. A butcher by trade, he was the greatest coach she ever encountered. Using real-world examples and the power of storytelling, Mary shares what she learned from her father and her career in the people business. This presentation will help you learn how to inspire and bring out the best in yourself and others by creating meaningful connections in your workplace, networks and personal life. 

Participants leave Mary's session with a fresh perspective on many of life's daily challenges, including:

  • Learn something from every person you meet.
  • The best endings are the ones you are prepared for.
  • Nobody can make you happy but yourself.
  • Don't take life too seriously - you're never going to get out of it alive anyway.
  • And finally......Remember the comeback sauce. 


This program has been submitted for 1 re-certification credit with SHRM and HRCI.
