In this upbeat and thought-provoking program, based on my new book The Necessity of Strangers, I’ll show you how to create remarkable breakthroughs in the things that matter most by tapping a world filled with remarkable strangers, ideas, and perspectives and rethinking the way you engage and work with all of the remarkable strangers inside your own organization.

And I’ll share the latest insights on how to make those you have the privilege to serve smarter, more successful, and more loyal.
