Saddle Up, Cowpokes!
Welcome to a big-as-Texas adventure! We’re gearing up to help you uncover the riches within your brand, the industry and yourself. Gain a wealth of knowledge and have the adventure of a lifetime.
So grab your boots and cowboy hat and mosey on down to Texas! And if you don't have boots or a hat, you can get 'em here!
Dig deep into The 4 Disciplines of Execution with Chris McChesney, one of the primary developers of these principles. As part of the Franklin Covey Speakers Bureau, Chris will share his experience and message on how you can get better results through execution. Enjoy an energetic session from Molly Fletcher, author of Your Dream Job Game Plan and The Business of Being the Best. Nicknamed the "female Jerry Maguire," Molly is truly in a league of her own as a top sports agent, entrepreneur, author and keynote speaker. And get ready as Eric Chester, author of Reviving Work Ethic, teaches you how to better understand "Generation Why" (those 16- to 24-year-olds working in your businesses), and how to keep them engaged and motivated.
Look for company and brand updates, and hear from CEO Russ Umphenour on the state of the organization and the future outlook. Start the path to blaze a new trail with other Franchise Partners and managers at our Chuck Wagon welcome reception.
The best ideas don’t always come from a speaker. Often, the greatest value of a convention is the chance to chat with your peers and learn from their successes. Join us for roundtable discussions featuring a wide-range of topics relevant to your business. Choose the topics that matter most to you and to your business, and learn from others’ experiences and ideas through our unique manager-specific and franchise partner-specific roundtable discussions.
And finally, spend several dedicated hours strolling through our vendor show where more than 100 companies, as well as our latest R&D products, will be showcased.
Wrap up your adventure with our Denim & Diamonds Awards Gala, where we crown the achievements of the best of the best and have a blazin' good time in the process. And to end things with a bang, each brand will give away a wrapped 2014 Ford Transit catering vehicle while one of our international partners will receive $20,000. All registered on-site Franchise Partner attendees will be entered into their primary brand's drawing, but you must be present at the Awards Gala to win, so don't miss it! See you in San Antonio!
