KEYNOTE

HARDI CEO, Talbot Gee, will lead presentation of HARDI’s 2019 research on the HVACR channel and wholesale distribution’s drivers and threats as perceived by HVACR manufacturers and contractors. Dan Vida, HARDI’s Unitary Market Analyst, and others will discuss what we’ve learned thus far about the channel and all of its various segments, distributor performance within these segments, and what the research is telling us distributors should be focusing on in 2020 to grow their value in the eyes of their customers and suppliers.

Magic is much more than sleight of hand. It’s the ability to guide perspective, spotlight influence, and challenge belief systems. With humor, heart, and captivating showmanship, Vinh Giang transforms these three powerful components and shares how creating and cultivating the RIGHT influence in our lives can make the difference between tremendous success or limited mediocrity. What we know in this world is that everything that once seemed impossible can be reimagined and overcome. It takes suspending old belief systems. Unlocking mindsets. Innovating. Deliberate and definitive action. And yes, even a little magic.

DUSTIN GARIS

There’s a shift taking place — leadership brands (from Coke to Mr. Clean) have stopped talking about their brand, to now focus on experiences that get people to live their brand. This represents the single largest white-space opportunity for brands to grow: real life. Taking your brand off the shelf and out of media, to authentically enrich people’s life experiences, generates the highest level of loyalty, advocacy, and sales (with a game-changing 95% lift).

KEN GRONBACH

What is the most important question to ask yourself in business?  The answer is: How many people are in my market, and is that market growing or shrinking?

Demographer, Futurist and Author Ken Gronbach makes clear how America’s Baby Boomers, Generation X, Generation Y and other countries’ age curves interact to create the opportunities and challenges of the world we live in today, and what the future will bring for people, profits and the planet.
