Leadership matters more today than ever before. Traits traditionally associated with femininity, such as empathy, collaboration and passion, are essential in today’s changing business environment. Shelley Zalis, CEO, The Female Quotient, will share:

  • A time when she was told there was no room for emotions in the boardroom, why she didn’t listen to that advice, and how it helped her to build and sell an $83 million online research business
  • How men and women can cultivate their own feminine leadership strengths
  • Why doing so will boost your impact as a leader—and your company’s bottom line

What’s is like to take a bankrupt startup and eventually sell it to a Fortune 500 Company for almost a quarter billion dollars?

And more importantly, what lessons can be conveyed from such an experience that will help you live the life you’ve imagined for yourself?

In "Irrational Persistence" Dave Zilko guides his audience through an actual “Only in America” story that details how he and his partner, starting with literally “less than nothing,” launched a fresh salsa company from the back of a tiny restaurant just outside, of all places, Detroit. Despite incredible odds they eventually built the premier deli supply company in the United States that the Campbell’s Soup Company recently purchased for $231 million.

Presented in an authentic and often humorous manner, “Irrational Persistence” both inspires and informs. It delivers practical tools that can be used immediately to foster entrepreneurial thinking, create value and deliver bottom-line results. You’ll learn:

  • the importance of, and courage required, to act entrepreneurially
  • how to search, and find, the Holy Grail of Capitalism
  • the value of never compromising your standards
  • a counterintuitive approach to sales, one in which you never sell anything
  • a unique, holistic approach to strategically building your company
