Pizza Expo Las Vegas March 1-3, 2011

Here is the latest news on the Pizza Expo:

27th Annual International Pizza Expo®
The World’s Largest and Oldest Pizza Tradeshow!
Las Vegas Convention Center
March 1 – 3, 2011

You’ve been attending Pizza Expo for years, you’ve heard it all and you’re ready for something new. Well, we listened and for the second year, you have an entire session module planned and developed with you in mind.

This session module will feature one session during every seminar time period – that’s three sessions on Tuesday, three sessions on Wednesday and one session on Thursday. Business leaders outside the pizza industry, who will bring a fresh approach to common business issues, will lead these sessions.

Tuesday morning will open with an encore presentation from Larry Oxenham, one of America’s top asset protection experts. In his Advanced Lawsuit Protection, Tax Reduction and Estate Planning Strategies, Larry will discuss strategies most advisors are unaware of, and are too many to list here. This was one of last year’s most popular sessions earning Larry a return invitation. You can’t afford to miss this session.

Tuesday afternoon will feature two sessions by noted author, Christine Corelli. In her first session, Are You a Leader or a Boss, Christine will show you how to lead in a way that gets the most out of your team. Her second session, Change, Challenges and Hard Choices, will look at today’s marketplace and the demands to embrace new ideas, create new business models and implement smart strategies in order to create and sustain success.

You don’t want to miss Wednesday morning with Troy Hazard and his Leadership Lessons From the Naked Entrepreneur: How to Guide Your Staff Through Tough Times. If you want to know what makes a good leader, then ask a leader of leaders. Troy is a veteran with 10 start-ups in 20 years under his belt and has proven himself in one of the toughest leadership roles on the planet – President of he Global Board of the Entrepreneurs’ Organization. Troy will share some of the lessons he learned as a leader of leaders and as a leader of teams. He will explain why he believes leaders are not born, they evolve.

Wednesday afternoon promises to be one of learning and one of entertainment. Barry Maher – you may have seen him on the Today Show or CNBC, or you may have read about him in USA Today, the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal or Business Week – will begin with Filling the Glass: Real World Tactics and Motivation for Increasing Productivity AND Job Satisfaction. This session is perfect for the most cynical veteran AND the most starry-eyed (or the most discouraged) novice. In Barry’s second session, Slicing Through the Noise: Powerful Communication for Leadership and Professional Success, he will show you how to communicate with people of all types and how to tactfully get what you want.

In the final session on Thursday, Ron Jasniowski will address the challenge foodservice managers face every day – the endless struggle to build a harmonious workforce of conscientious, loyal employees. In Turning Ordinary People Into Extraordinary Foodservice Employees, you will learn how to develop the untapped character qualities in your employees and more.

These new session topics and fresh new speakers will expose you to the latest trends and practices in business and challenge you to look at your business in a new light.
