Goals - Why you're not achieving them and how to fix it
Goals - Why you're not achieving them and how to fix it
What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to do? If you could achieve one goal in the next week, month or year – what would it be? We know we need goals for our careers, our finances, our health but they are always so hard to find the time and stick to. If this is true – you’re definitely doing it wrong.
 
With real world examples - Nick Salmon will explain how you’ve been doing goals wrong all your life. He’ll dismantle your existing beliefs about goal setting and give you a simple three step method you can implement to today to start achieving success.
 
From his years as an aerospace engineer managing a diverse team of professionals to his emergence as a Toastmasters™ International Speech Champion, Nick Salmon embarked on a personal mission: To “simplify success” so that anyone can be empowered to achieve professional and personal goals that were once beyond their wildest dreams.

Taking bias out of the box: How curiosity can help businesses solve recruitment and retention
Since entering recovery in 2016, Ty Reed has rebuilt his life and now uses the lessons learned while recovering from homelessness, addiction, and life as a petty criminal to help others. Ty spoke to the Rotary Club of Kirkland in early 2020 (just before COVID), and received positive feedback from members. He returns to address a burning "post-COVID" topic of economic recovery through employee retention.
 
Through his nonprofit, Recovery Career Services, which is dedicated to helping people in recovery find and keep employment, he provides career coaching and development to assist individuals in rebuilding their professional lives.
 
Ty also uses public speaking, storytelling, workshops, and webinars to communicate his message to those in recovery, their families, and the business community about the importance of desperation, hope, and second chances.
