Summit Keynote Speakers

One of the highlights of every Global TapRooT® Summit is the Keynote Speakers. This year Mark Paradies has selected an inspiring team of Keynote Speakers for the Summit.

It starts on Wednesday morning with RADONDA VAUGHT, a nurse who was criminally prosecuted for a medical error. She will share her story, and you can consider the impact of discipline on future incidents.

Closing the sessions on Wednesday is GARRISON WYNN. He shares his experience to help you understand how to influence safety across all the generations of workers at your facility. And these lessons apply to more than just safety. Make sure you are there to laugh and learn.

We will start Thursday by hearing a former CIA Security Specialist, SUSAN CARNICERO, share her techniques for spotting deceptive answers (“Spy the Lie“) based on a behavioral screening process she developed at the CIA.

We will end the day on Thursday with System Improvements’ own interviewing and soft-skills expert, BARB CARR, explaining “The Psychology of Happiness.” Don’t we all need a little more happiness? Discover the secrets of achieving happiness in the new normal of the post-Covid world.

To close the Summit on Friday, FRANK ABAGNALE, famous after the movie that portrayed his early life, Catch Me if You Can, will share lessons about keeping your company and personal data and finances secure. Don’t miss his eye-opening talk built upon his experience on both sides of the law as a teenage forger and, later, an FBI expert.

Summit Networking Opportunities

An important part of any conference is the people you meet and the network you build to share information and learn new best practices. We guarantee you will meet new, valuable contacts at the 2023 Global TapRooT® Summit.

How can we guarantee this? Because in the 28 years we have held the Summit, we have developed techniques to make meeting valuable contacts easy and fun.

First, we start by having you play “The Name Game.” What is this? Attend the Summit and find out!

Second, we have a fun reception on Wednesday night where you can relax and talk to Summit attendees and speakers and eat and have a few drinks.

And listen to some music and maybe even dance!

Third, you will participate in best practice sharing sessions with some of the most advanced company representatives from around the world.

Bringing Your Whole Team to the Summit!

Attending the Summit is a smart decision. Bringing your whole improvement team to the Summit is a stroke of genius!

Why is bringing your team so important? First, one person can’t attend all the tracks, sessions, and pre-Summit Courses.

Second, when you return to work, your whole team will be energized and will use the same playbook (the Roadmap to Success) to make improvements happen rapidly.

Third, you will save when you bring a team. Here are the Summit discounts…

Pricing for 2023 Summit

Imagine saving $8,000 when you bring a 10-person team to pre-Summit Courses and the Summit. And imagine the skills and knowledge they will return to work with and apply to improve your company’s performance.
