Leadership Guru Peter Sheahan to Keynote at NAFA I&E

The world is not short of ideas, just short of peo­ple who know how to car­ry them out.  That’s what author and lead­er­ship con­sul­tant Peter Shea­han believes and is the basis of his lat­est book, Mak­ing It Hap­pen.  Shea­han will pro­vide the first of two Keynote Pre­sen­ta­tions at NAFA’s 2014 Insti­tute & Expo.  The I&E attracts thou­sands of fleet pro­fes­sion­als from through­out the world for four days of edu­ca­tion, net­work­ing, and moti­va­tion to bring back to the office.  This year’s con­fer­ence takes place April 8–11 at the Min­neapo­lis Con­ven­tion Cen­ter in Min­neapo­lis, MN.

As founder and CEO of Change­Labs ™, a glob­al con­sul­tan­cy firm deliv­er­ing large-scale behav­ioral change projects for clients such as Apple and IBM, Shea­han has worked with some of the world’s lead­ing brands in the area of inno­va­tion and change.  With oper­a­tions in three coun­tries and nine cities, he knows first-hand the pres­sures of grow­ing and lead­ing a busi­ness in the rapid­ly chang­ing world.  In his pre­sen­ta­tion, he’ll give his insights on how the best lead­ers and entre­pre­neurs exe­cute on their good ideas and turn them into prof­itable results.

“Regard­less of whether one is look­ing to start a busi­ness, get pro­mot­ed, or launch a social move­ment, the key is learn­ing how to stream­line one’s think­ing to turn good ideas into great results,” said NAFA’s Exec­u­tive Direc­tor, Phillip E. Rus­so, CAE.  “Shea­han focus­es on teach­ing lead­ers and com­pa­nies how to flip their think­ing to make mon­ey in the cracks and find oppor­tu­ni­ties where oth­ers can­not.  NAFA is very excit­ed to have him speak in front of our atten­dees!”

Shea­han is the author of 6 books, includ­ing the inter­na­tion­al best­sellers Fl!p and Gen­er­a­tion Y.  As a glob­al thought leader, Peter’s insights into busi­ness trends and the chang­ing needs of cus­tomers and staff have made him a reg­u­lar pre­sen­ter on Fox Busi­ness, with appear­ances on ABC and BBC aswell. In 2008 Peter was a fea­tured expert in a five-part glob­al series on Inno­va­tion on CNBC, and he has been writ­ten up in the Wash­ing­ton Post and Fast Com­pa­ny mag­a­zine. His newest book Mak­ing It Hap­pen unpacks his insights on the exe­cu­tion of ideas through focused busi­ness growth, under­stand­ing buy­ing behav­ior, and com­pelling mar­ket posi­tion­ing.

“Peter has deliv­ered more than 2,000 pre­sen­ta­tions to over 300,000 peo­ple in 15 dif­fer­ent coun­tries,” said Rus­so. “He’s been vot­ed the Nation­al Speak­ers Association’s Keynote Speak­er of the Year and named one of the 25 Hottest New Speak­ers inAmer­i­ca as well as one of the 25 Most Influ­en­tial Speak­ers in the indus­try.   He’s going to give the per­fect start to this year’s con­fer­ence!”

NAFA’s annu­al con­fer­ence will take place April 8–11, 2014 in Min­neapo­lis, MN.  The four-day con­fer­ence is the fleet man­age­ment event of the year with more than 60 hours of edu­ca­tion­al ses­sions, an expo floor fea­tur­ing over 250 exhibitors with the lat­est prod­ucts and ser­vices, the pre­sen­ta­tion of the Fleet Excel­lence Awards, and Keynote pre­sen­ta­tions from Peter Shea­han and Simon Sinek, two inter­na­tion­al­ly best­selling authors and lead­er­ship experts.  The annu­al con­fer­ence attracts sev­er­al thou­sand fleet man­age­ment pro­fes­sion­als from through­out the world.  For more infor­ma­tion on the I&E vis­it http://www.nafainstitute.org.
