2018 Featured Speakers:
LES MCKEOWN – Founder and CEO of Predictable Success
Predictable Success is an organizational growth and leadership development model rooted in the seven stages of growth and occasional decline that any business will go through regardless of size or industry.  Click HERE to hear from Les McKeown what you will learn on September 26, 2018.

The model is used to help leaders at any level of an organization identify the processes, structures and people needed to deliver consistent, high-quality business growth decisions and to push ownership and self accountability down to every level of the organization

The model was created by Les McKeown and is laid out in his WSJ best-selling book Predictable Success: Getting Your Organization on the Growth Track – and Keeping it There and The Synergist: How to Lead Your Team to Predictable Success.

Les advises CEOs and senior leaders of organizations on how to achieve scalable, sustainable growth and speaks to Fortune 500 companies about his breakthrough strategies.
Prior to founding Predictable Success, Les established himself as a serial founder/owner, starting more than 40 companies, in addition to being the founding partner of an incubation consulting company that advised on the creation and growth of hundreds more organizations worldwide.

BRAD SUGARS - Founder, ActionCOACH

Brad Sugars started the ActionCOACH brand (formerly known as Action International) when he was in his early twenties. Today the company is internationally recognized as the leading global business coaching firm and one of the leading and most awarded franchises in the world today. So how did a twenty-something Australian create this global powerhouse? He did it through hard work, determination and a well-organized, systemized approach that leads businesses to profits.

Brad Sugars has always been entrepreneurial. Even from a very young age, Brad was an entrepreneur. He displayed a natural curiosity for how to work smarter and get measurable results. When still at university, Brad Sugars ran several small businesses. Perhaps due in part to his talents which were developed at a relatively young age, Brad’s ability to make companies from every conceivable industry flourish lead him to be known as “The Turnaround Kid”. Brad Sugars was soon asked to speak to business owners and executives – sharing his tips and advice on marketing, sales, systemization and team building. Audiences were wowed. Brad’s “pull no-punches” approach was a refreshing change from other speakers at the time. The content of his events were filled with simple and easy ways to grow businesses. Brad Sugars' seminars quickly grew in reputation as the business building event to see.

In addition, the Conference will offer break out sessions and opportunities to connect with like-minded individuals from diverse industries.  Please visit centraliowabusinessconference.com for full details
