America goes through long cycles that mimic those we see  in nature – fall, winter, spring and summer. We are currently experiencing winter, but spring is coming. Are you ready for it?  In this keynote presentation, Rebecca Ryan will address the  cyclical nature of our economies, generational profiles, and world view; and will help us identify the leadership skills and  attributes of each cycle, asking the important question of “What kind of leader do we need right now?” Using these grounding concepts as a foundation, we’ll explore ideas and outcomes from AGRiP’s recent report Thriving in Uncertainty,  including how technology, generational shifts, leadership  changes, and catastrophic weather events are likely to impact the public entity pooling world and how best to prepare for  the coming changes. Throughout the keynote presentation  and more in-depth conversations that follow throughout the day, we’ll match influencing trends with organizational needs and help pools identify what they need to watch for and how  to manage through so many unknowns, who needs to be ready  to lead through a shifting landscape, and how to prepare  for spring.
