With the announcement of keynote speakers for the 2013 NAQP Owners Conference, November 7-10 in Nashville, TN, it is clear that the conference is being built according to members’ specifications. Among member requests were marketing information and entertaining presentations, and two conference keynoters fit those specs perfectly.
On November 8, keynoter David Avrin, author of the breakout marketing book “It’s Not Who You Know, It’s Who Knows You”, will show how to promote a true competitive advantage while building a strong brand identity. His energetic and informative marketing presentation is sponsored by Xerox.
Luncheon keynoter on November 9 is Mike Rayburn, a.k.a. “the world’s funniest guitar virtuoso”, whose hilarious musical presentations will leave attendees laughing and energized as he entertains while encouraging, challenging, and inspiring them to move far beyond their perceived limitations.
Also, as requested by members, business coach Nancy Proffitt will lead the closing session on November 9, recapping program takeaways and sending attendees home with ideas they can put to use immediately.
