Competitive, challenging and constantly changing – that is today’s uncertain marketplace! To survive you need a new set of strategies, and to thrive you need a new approach to business growth. In this high-energy, power-packed session, Motivational Speaker Meridith Elliott Powell shares the strategies you need to redefine disruption, put you in the driver’s seat, and turn uncertainty to your competitive advantage.

Based on research from her newest book, Thrive: Turning Uncertainty To Competitive Advantage, where Meridith studied nine companies (companies founded  in the late 1700’s to early 1800’s) that are still thriving in business today. Businesses that  have survived World Wars, Economic Depression and yes even a Pandemic. Her research revealed a powerful methodology for what it takes to navigate change at this level, find opportunity in crisis, and motivate and inspire a workforce to move from reacting to change to driving it.  Meridith will also share how her personal story – how her speaking business blew up, and what she did to turn it around and how you can apply this strategy to your own speaking business.
