KEYNOTE | Reaching Peak Potential: Stories to Shape a New HR Vision

Tuesday, May 7th, 2019 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm

Randy Pierce, 2020 VisionQuest

What’s it all about? Despite unexpectedly losing his vision due to a neurological disease at the age of 22, Randy Pierce has chosen a life filled with incredible adventure. Randy is the first blind hiker to summit all 48 of the New Hampshire 4,000-footers (in just one season!), a 2-time Boston Marathon finisher, and has climbed the iconic Mount Kilimanjaro in Tanzania. Randy joins us to share the highs, lows, and problem-solving techniques he used to convert adversity into achievement, and identify universal strategies to work beyond our self-imposed limitations – all alongside his guide dog, Autumn!

Why you’ll want to participate in this session.

  • Find inspiration in Randy’s tenacious and resilient personal story of tackling adversity.
  • Take honest stock in organizational challenges, and assess alternative approaches to self-imposed limitations.
  • Learn new strategies to bring back to your organization: from goal-setting and problem-solving, to team motivation.
