EPI Power Sessions

The Empty Seat:
Reengineering Your Relationship with the Business Owner

Who does an owner really trust? The answer is quite simple. An owner trusts their own gut over all other influences. Do you know what qualities an owner (subconsciously) values about him/herself that you could showcase more prominently? Have you done the work to think like an entrepreneur who takes risk versus a “numbers guy” who manages and avoids risk? Despite the widely-spread belief that there is a “most trusted advisor” to the owner, we believe that the seat across from that desk is empty and that if you learn the skills that garner respect and trust, you can fill that seat.

Leveraging the wisdom of the TED-style speech and the knowledge that short, compelling talks that challenge the status quo can change the world, EPI is pleased to introduce five speakers who will regale you with the knowledge, strategies, hard truths, and powerful facts to reinvent your approach and drive even better outcomes.

2019 Power Session Lineup:
