Special Morning Agenda: C-Suite Exclusive Workshop*

7:00 a.m. - 7:30 a.m. Pre-Registration for C-Suite Breakfast Workshop* (separate registration is required for this session and you must be a C-Suite in order to attend)

7:30 a.m. - 9:00 a.m. C-Suite Breakfast Workshop: Val Wright How to Become Brilliant at Demonstrating Your Brilliance

Results alone will not build and sustain incredible success. Your brilliance will not endlessly carry you forward in your career. Eventually, it will crash on the shoreline, and you will lose that propulsion if you don't create an endless source of continuous thrust by being brilliant at demonstrating your brilliance. With not a moment of bragging in sight! Executives and teams are rewarded and recognized predominantly for their immediate results, whereas, the higher you rise in your executive career you have to pay more attention to how you are demonstrating and sharing your results, impact, and value.

*Included in Leadership Conference registration but only available to those currently in the Watermark C-Suite Networks; registration by invite only.
