5th Annual Think Different, Do Different Conference

The Quinte Region East Professional Development Association is pleased to announce that it is hosting its 5th Annual Think Different … Do Different Conference virtually on March 10th & 11th, 2021. The conference theme is Building for the Future, which the committee feels is a fitting topic based on the events and challenges of this past year. Our facilitator Gary Gzik, CEO of BizXcel Inc., is passionate about people and their potential to do great things in their organizations and lives. He imagines a world where the TGIF mentality is abolished, where there is no more “working to live” or “living to work”; there’s just living.

The March 10th/21 Networking Event and Keynote- Legendary Leaders is designed to offer leaders the chance to connect with their colleagues from across the province and participate in a high energy, interactive session that will show participants how it is our responsibility to shape the culture of their organizations.  

On the morning of March 11th/21, leaders will continue the conversation in the Where Hustle Meets Heart workshop. Gary will expand upon the Legendary Leaders keynote and dare leaders to join Team Human and create strong cultures by working from the inside out - helping everyone on their team to contribute each day to the culture through their choices. We teach participants how to change the culture from a noun to a verb - treating it not as something you have but something each person does. He will help leaders understand how to become SHIFT Disturbers and build a powerful and impactful organization. 

The afternoon of March 11th/21 is dedicated to frontline employees and supervisors, where Gary will recognize their resilience and contributions. Gritty individuals, teams, and organizations share the same traits: a desire to work hard, learn and improve. They have shown resilience in the face of adversity and, of course, true respect and appreciation for what each member brings to the team. In times of adversity, like the Covid-19 pandemic, team grit is being tested like never before. In this session, he will uncover the principles of building grit in yourself, your team, and your organization and the tools and techniques you need to put it into practice. We’ll help you make the decision to bring your best self to your team and life and how to build real perseverance and resilience by authentically connecting with one another.
