Club & Individual Incentives for 2014-2015

2015 Spring Conference

May 9, 2015 8:00am-9:30pm
New York LaGuardia Airport Marriott

Keynote Speaker Darren LaCroix
2001 International Speech World Champion, presents:

“SPONGE! What is filling you?”

What is it you really want? Is it possible? If others have done it, so can you. Why do a few people succeed and others remain in mediocrity despite huge effort? What is the X factor, and how can you get it? Mentors make the difference, but what if it is more than just mentors. It has been said, when the student is ready, the teacher will appear. How can you get ready and what will you do when they show up?

You’ll walk away with the insights about how Darren LaCroix’s mentors shaped the path of his life. They came in many shapes and sizes. Break the chains of your past and take a fresh look at exactly how to get more out of the limited time you have. In this session you may just learn more about yourself, through two simple bowls of water, than you ever thought possible. What does that mean? Come find out!

Darren LaCroix will also present at the evening general session and Comedy at the Conference Fun Night!

Role of the Club Sponsor, Mentor or Coach

Why YOU want to be a club sponsor/mentor/coach!

Successful mentors and sponsors consider themselves a personal coach. Coaching involves a variety of skills which includes assessing, demonstrating, motivating, and tutoring. Successful mentors and sponsors are counselors and leaders and become role models to their mentees. By being willing to try your skills as a mentor/sponsor/coach, you are challenging yourself to higher leadership potential and acquiring leadership skills for any and all your future endeavors – in your community, church, non-profits, your workplace and your home.


The Traveling Gavel is making the rounds.
