Program + Events

The WAVE: Hang 10 will offer the following three tracks.  You can choose to go to the sessions in only one track or mix it up as you wish.

Track 1: Coordinator Track – Paddling Out: Suit Up and Dive In

What are the best ways to “dive in” and allow information, creativity, and productivity to flow?  How does one paddle out successfully, without getting pummeled by that rogue wave?

Track 2: Manager/Director Track – Big Kahuna’s Barrel Ride: Charge for Success

How do we master the maneuvers required to effectively negotiate rising market trends  and opportunities, and leverage company and resource strengths to get in, and stay in the barrel for the long ride?

Track 3: Business Development Track – Joining the Lineup: Know the Locals, the Aces, and the Flounders

How do we make connections with new or existing clients that solidify our place in the Lineup among the other “surfers”?  How do we build relationships that allow us to catch the oncoming wave and see bigger waves on the horizon?
