Hannah Ubl | Good Company Consulting

Work Reimagined: Leading for Today's Workplace

The tides have changed, and so have perceptions about what makes for a good job, a good organization, and a good leadership methodology. So why is it that so many leaders continue to operate with a workplace ethos that just isn’t resonating in the current work world?

Those that aren’t adapting to the new rules of engagement are facing an environment rife with frustrated employees, high attrition rates, and broken lines of communication… not to mention a pipeline of talent that will quickly dry up without much-needed change. This keynote makes the case for why a new leadership mindset is critical, and explores how the best in the biz are embracing transformation.

Attendee Takeaways:

  • How to lead in a way that values trust and transparency over strict rules and regulation
  • Listening to understand over listening to respond
  • Learn how to increase employee retention and decrease burnout

Speaker Bio:
Insatiably curious, Hannah has dedicated the past decade of her career to researching people at work… and not just top talent and leadership, but also everyone in between. Her skill lies in digesting those findings, and pairing them with the latest workplace and social trends, to deliver custom takeaways for every client. She’s been invited to share those findings with executives, leaders, and employees in hundreds of organizations like Cisco Systems, PPG, Sodexo, numerous universities, and multiple hospital associations. As co-founder of Good Company Consulting, she’s committed to flipping the traditional workplace script, throwing out the old “employees are lines on a spreadsheet” in favor of treating people at work more like well, people. With heart, deep conviction, and a good dose of self-deprecating humor, Hannah will sweep you along on a journey of insights that lead to deep, lasting mindset shifts about how work works. Don’t be surprised if you feel like grabbing a coffee with her post-presentation and talking about all things people and work (it’s her most common piece of feedback after “that was so helpful!”).


Sam Adams | Sam Adams Does Comedy

Race to a Finish Line

This presentation captures Sam’s unique perspectives on diversity, and the delicate and volatile topic of race relations. By relating his personal experiences, which range from high school in Cleveland, Ohio to reporting on the Olympic Games in Sydney, Australia, Sam’s storytelling inspires audiences to seek common ground, whether talking about or being confronted by racism.

The key takeaways from this presentation are:

  • Recognize “Blind Spots”
  • Acknowledge “Hurdles”
  • Confront “Deafness”
  • Extend “Baton”

Speaker Bio:
This Sam Adams is the entertainer based in Denver, Colorado — not the guy on the beer bottle. He performs a hilarious, energetic brand of comedy for corporate events and comedy clubs across the country. And, his act is 100 percent profanity-free.

Sam started his standup comedy career at age 41. He made it a full-time career at age 49, after leaving the 2009 Great American Comedy Festival as its most unique winner still to date.  Sam won the festival’s first-place prize in the amateur division, then accepted a last-minute request to replace an ill contestant in the professional division. The lone amateur in the field of 24 contestants, Sam earned a second-place finish.
