Key Note Presenter: Paul Butler

Bio: Paul Butler is an internationally renowned speaker, presenter, instructor, and entertainer. During his 27 years of law enforcement, he has been a public servant, training officer, sergeant, crisis negotiator, chief of police, and chief deputy. These opportunities have given him a unique perspective on a vast array of situations and circumstances that many people find themselves in every day. These experiences have helped him to develop the answers to questions and cures to problems most people are facing at work and in life on a continual basis.

Learn how to take individual talents and apply them to a group setting to make an unstoppable and productive team. The ability to lead is present in everyone, regardless of their rank in an organization and irrespective of their situation in life.
