    Young Innovators Give Back: Boys and Girls Club of Indianapolis
    When the school bell rings for the end of the day, many Indy youth are left with few options for positive after school activities. Some are at home with no adult care or supervision, not because they don't have great parents, but because parents must work long hours to support their families. Young people need to know that someone cares when parents can't be there. Boys and Girls Clubs offer that and more.

    Building a Sustainable Brand
    Karl Barnhart

    When smart business leaders think about branding, they don’t think about a new logo, or a catchy tagline or even a clever ad campaign. They think bigger: A brand is a promise to perform in a predicable way. This session will go through the definitions of a strong brand and the practices to build sustainable branding. The presentation will include best practices and case studies from across a number of industries.


    4:50 p.m. - 5:40 p.m.

    Becoming an RFP Master
    Patrick Michaud

    Your time is valuable, and the amount that you spend responding to solicitations like RFPs can be overwhelming. Being selective with which solicitations you respond to is not only important for the efficiency of your business, but also a morale builder for your supporting teams. During this talk, we will look at certain guidelines that will allow you to take a more selective approach to RFP response, as well as strategies to make your presentation standout for those events that pass the rigorous vetting process.

    Disruption: How to Create It, How to Manage It, How to Profit from It
    Rick Roddis

    Believe or not, the print industry has dealt with disruption for a long time. The move from Linotype to film. The move from film to digital. The move from direct mail to email. All of these changes caused disruption in the print industry and forced businesses to change how they conducted business.

    The same is happening now, with many business processes that were once utilizing paper now moving online, and paper is becoming obsolete. So, how does a business that used to support the paper process partake in the new digital transformation?  This session will review two case studies within Rick’s business where he effectively disrupted his traditional paper business and is now taking part in the Digital Revolution. He will also provide you a simple road map to help you develop disruption in your own business.
