Morning Keynote - The Confidence Cycle: How to Unlock the Most Confident Version of Yourself

JUAN BENDANA, CONFIDENCE COACH

- Tuesday April 30  - 

With the future changing faster than ever before and uncertainty everywhere we look, we must realize that the skills that got us here today are not the same skills that will help us get to where we’re going next. Today, we need to build a new skill set that will allow us to realize and experience the best version of ourselves so that we can thrive through tomorrow and every day after. This skill set must be rooted in confidence; the foundation of growth, learning, and development. Whether we like it or not, uncertainty isn’t going away. Instead of wishing for more certain times, let's create more certain people. The question is how.

Confidence Coach to top CEO's, Olympians, Actors and Peak Performers across every industry, Juan Bendana is an internationally recognized speaker who helps leaders navigate uncertainty and exponential change by developing the unwavering confidence to thrive in any environment.  Drawing from his science-based framework, the Confidence Cycle, Juan has inspired over 250,000 leaders, including those at category leading companies such as Disney, Sotheby's International, and Sony Pictures.
