think tank SESSIONS

Join like-minded peers during crowd-sourced think tank sessions to explore ideas and gather lessons. Lightly facilitated by seasoned process professionals, participants will build on each other’s ideas for concepts that can immediately be taken back to the office!


Hear inspiring keynotes by health and wellness pioneer, technology leader and entrepreneur, Christopher Dancy; the "Obi-Wan Kenobi" of leadership advising, Jane Walton; and APQC's John Tesmer, and Jeff Varney. These presentations gather all conference attendees in a general session and last about an hour each.


You’ve experienced a TED Talk, right? Taken from that same format, our storytellers are given 20-minutes to grab your attention by sharing their narratives, giving you ideas and concepts that will be exciting and memorable. These are two 20-minute sessions that will change the way you look at PPM!
