Kelly Leonard – The Second City
In this kickoff keynote, Kelly tells backstage stories from his decades at The Second City. Come learn how to transform your business with innovative strategies, including: the power of replacing “No, but...” thinking with “Yes, and...” thinking; embracing and using failure; and co-creating something out of nothing in collaboration with audiences using unique, time-tested tactics. Kelly was named in Crain’s Chicago Business 40 under 40, among other honors, and recently authored the acclaimed book Yes, And. His session will enchant and inspire any researcher to be more successful...and to laugh a little more along the way.
