On Deck...My Ship in leadership

presented by:  Russ SalzMan, CAE, IOM, RCE

a Great Lakes yachtsman and career CEO, Russ will join us as our September keynote speaker. He will share a fascinating look at business leadership through the eyes of a sailboat racer.

Russ Salzman has been a prominent civic leader as the President and CEO of Chicago’s Magnificent Mile Association during the boom years of 1990-2004. He then began a 12 year run as the CEO of IREM's international headquarters in Chicago. He holds three professional designations in nonprofit leadership. He is an instructor and facilitator for the U S Chamber of Commerce's Institute for Organization Management as well as countless other workshops, lectures and convention seminars focused on leadership, strategy, talent management, and self-awareness. He also holds a U S Coast Guard Commercial Captain's License first issued in 1985 and is an instructor and charter captain for Pinnacle Yachts in Chicago.

Using three arenas of sailboat racing--Information; Mechanics; and Speed—he blends his vocation and avocations as an analogy for each of us in our business roles. Russ will challenge us to look through that lens focusing on Direction; Operations; and Efficiencies in a most interesting fashion.

His presentation will provide an opportunity to 'dial in' actions and tactics as racers in business and life. Incorporating humor, videos, provoking thoughts, and a personal worksheet, attendees will leave with a motivation to refresh their course heading, anticipate the next wind shift and adjust your sails.

Bring members of your work teams and discover a refreshed look and nomenclature for your teams. You’ll get even more excited about the upcoming summer in Chicago and you'll never look at a sailboat the same again!
