The theme for this year’s event—The Power of Clarity—provides the framework for a comprehensive and enlightening schedule.

Captain Larry Brudnicki, the legendary U.S. Coast Guard Captain known for performing two dramatic rescues off the New England coast in October 1991 during “The Perfect Storm,” the worst storm in more than 100 years, will deliver a keynote address on day two. He will pull from his vast experience to speak about leadership, teamwork, courage, and risk management as strategies for success in today’s uncertain business environment and identify tools for making decisions in the most challenging circumstances.
