Are you unable to attend Efficiency Exchange May 9-10 in Portland in person, but would like to be part of the experience? No worries, these two general sessions will be available as a live webcast. And while the May 10 session will be recorded and available post-conference, this will be your only opportunity to see Shane Snow's keynote address in it's entirety.

May 9, 9-10:30 a.m.  Opening Remarks and Keynote Address by Shane Snow

The conference kicks off with opening remarks from Richard Génecé, and Susan Stratton, followed by a keynote address from Shane Snow. Snow is co-founder of the content technology company Contently, which helps creative people and companies tell great stories together. Shane serves on the board of the Contently Foundation for Investigative Journalism, and is the author of Smartcuts: The Breakthrough Power of Lateral Thinking. Snow's writing has appeared in Fast Company, Wired, The New Yorker and dozens more top publications. Takeaways will include why some groups are able to achieve incredible things in implausibly short amounts of time while others fall by the wayside, how to beat roadblocks and plateaus in business and life, and how to approach creative problem solving through what psychologists call "lateral thinking."

Speakers: Richard Génecé, BPA | Susan Stratton, NEEA | Shane Snow, Contently
