Last year’s Midwest Change Connect Conference was on Tuesday, October 29, 2019!

Keynote Speaker - Paul Gibbons

Paul Gibbons is an author, speaker, and consultant. His “beat” is helping business leaders use science and philosophy to make better strategic decisions, implement change, innovate, change culture, and create workplaces where talent flourishes. His most recent book, The Science of Organizational Change has been hailed as “the most important book on change in fifteen years.”

Between writing projects, he consults, coaches, and speaks with businesses such as Microsoft, Google, HSBC, KPMG, and Comcast.

First 100 registrants received a copy of Paul's newest book on change, Impact!  21st Century Change Management, Behavioral Science, Digital Transformation, and Future of Work, due to be released later this summer!

New Location This Year!


Have you ever attended a conference but forgot much of what you heard?

Do you review speaker slides following a conference but can’t recall the context of the presentation?

Have you ever wondered what it would be like to apply what you hear vs. just listening to a speaker?

New this year was the introduction of ‘Connect-a-thons’.
