  • 1:15pm – 2:15pm: Opening Keynote: Learning to Love the Turbulence
    Location: Sapphire 2/3 Amelia Rose Earhart, President of Fly with Amelia Foundation When we set our minds toward any big goal, we imagine creating our plan and executing it to completion. We tell ourselves that if we work hard enough, we will soar from Point A to Point B gracefully, leaving others to wonder how we ever pulled it off. We begin our journey and everything seems fine. The wind is at our backs and the view is spectacular. Suddenly, there’s a terrifying jolt. We’ve been thrown off course by something we never saw coming: turbulence. Suddenly, our well thought out plan is thrown out the window. We are now in crisis mode. Which way is up? Who is on our team? Is there ANY safe place to land? This is the point where we have to ask ourselves if we are doomed for a crash landing or if we are willing to learn to love the turbulence. Sponsored by CRMLS:
