9:00 am – Noon

Venue:  BMO Institute for Learning, 3550 Pharmacy Avenue, Toronto, ON  M1W 3Z3

There is no question that these are unprecedented times for associations. It is an era characterized by an increasingly crowded marketplace where stakeholders are demanding tangible – and customized – solutions and support to their professional and business challenges, and where disruptive innovation in communications and technology are the norm. Certainly, associations are facing unprecedented pressure to evolve their structure and business models in ways unimagined by our predecessors. For a growing number, their very existence is at stake.

This interactive session will present key findings from The Portage Group’s 2017 Association Trends Benchmarking Report and share with you not only what are the top-of-mind trends, issues and challenges facing your peers but importantly, what they are doing about it.

Talking So People Listen and Listening So People Talk

Barry Pokroy, Organizational Behaviour and
People Performance Expert, sponsored by Speakers Spotlight
Early Bird Registration Deadline: March 29, 2017

Barry Pokroy helps organizations make lasting and sustainable changes in the performance of their people and the business itself. His extensive background in clinical psychology accelerates performance and drives lasting results.

This important keynote focuses on creating enhanced client/member engagement and increased “employee centricity”. This is done through the use of a psychological model of connection, which highlights the way in which our relational dynamics can shift to create a more positive impact. Audience members are equipped with the skills and insights to listen, connect and respond differently. A shift in mindset occurs from transactional management (task/process) to relationship management (people).

Audiences are exposed to a psychological theory, which provides a user-friendly language to identify, assess and interpret personality.

This approach also provides participants with insight to their behaviour and the behaviour of others in the workplace through the use of an Egogram—a tool utilized in different settings to connect and understand ourselves, our clients/members and our teams more effectively.
