Speakers Seek to Motivate

Former Yahoo! executive Tim Sanders keynoted today's general session, "Saving the World at Work," at 7:45 a.m. The title of his address is also the title of his third book, which was released in September 2008.

According to his Web site (www.timsanders.com), the book's premise is simple: "In this new socially conscious day and age, you can make a difference as you make a dollar. Any person, especially you, can change the world by changing the way your company does business."

Sanders joined Yahoo! through the acquisition of Mark Cuban's Broadcast.com in 1999 and was named "chief solutions officer" after he created and led the company's "ValueLab," an internal group designed to provide insight into Yahoo!'s customers. He also is the New York Times bestselling author of "Love is the Killer App" and "The Likeability Factor."

Tomorrow, Chip Eichelberger will help close the conference on an enthusiastic note with Wednesday's lunch program titled "SWITCH on Your Sales Success," an address customized to help SH&E professionals affect the performance of their organizations.

Formerly the "international point man" for motivational speaker Tim Robbins, Eichelberger is a Certified Speaking Professional, the highest earned designation awarded by the National Speakers Association, who challenges his audiences to take a hard look at their attitudes, giving them tools to get their teams "plugged back in and switched on!"
