Keynote Speakers

Batteries Not Included: Powering
Critical Conversations

Dr. Kevin Ahmaad Jenkins

A catalyst for change that opens the path to healing dialogue.

Tough corporate conversations about inequity where we work, live, and learn can intimidate anyone. The toxicity of corporate environments surfaces when we host dialogue with no destination. No matter the conflict or crisis, organizations need to know why and how to lead critical conversations about tough topics. Dr. Kevin provides a roadmap and guides your company through the art of authentic engagement that reconstructs corporate culture.
Keynote Speakers

The Roadmap to Influence

Stevie Ray

Every member of an organization—executives, managers, and front-line staff—must influence others to achieve a positive outcome. Sadly, most people rely on ineffective methods of persuasion, statistics and information, authority, or pressure, to influence others.

Stevie Ray’s interactive, hands-on session teaches the process of influencing others to accept your message and act on it. You will also learn the neuroscience of decision-making, giving you a better understanding of why some approaches to influence work, while others cause even more resistance.


Health and Safety Precautions

AAPPR has adjusted our safety precautions for the conference based on updated CDC guidance and Chicago policies. The following precautions will be in place as long as the COVID-19 Community Level remains at Low or Medium in Cook County (Chicago).

Attendees are encouraged to:

– Wear a mask based on your personal preference, informed by your personal level of risk.
– Stay up to date with COVID-19 vaccines.
– Wear a mask or respirator that provides you with greater protection if you are at risk for severe illness.
– Test yourself which can give you information about your risk of spreading COVID-19.
– Stay home if you test positive, regardless of whether you are experiencing symptoms.

AAPPR will continue to monitor the situation and adjust plans as warranted. AAPPR will enforce any federal, state, or local mandates as they exist at the time of the event. Those who don’t comply will be asked to leave the event.
