“Think Like A DifferenceMaker Leader”
We each have the ability to make a meaningful difference as leaders. However, many fail to execute the fundamental underpinnings to do so. When we make a meaningful difference, lives become inspired, situations positively shift, and desired results are often achieved.


In this engaging and inspirational keynote, Austin J. Franklin leads a discussion that invites attendees to explore research-based ideas that will position their organizations for a future-ready and thriving workplace. Get ready to Think Like a DifferenceMaker Leader!
