Adapting to Change & Overcoming Adversity in 2021 
May 5, 2021

Dr. Dale Henry  Change Your Present and Change Your Future
10:00 AM to 12:00 PM

You have heard all the stuff, right?  Embrace change!  Go with the flow!  Stand in one place too long, and you’ll fall behind!  If you are green, you are growing, and if you are ripe, you rot!  Getting better really means getting better at accepting change.  Organizations and individuals that create value create their own destiny into the future.  True change happens when success is achieved in front of the future curve–not behind it.  This program focuses on the Ten Cans of Change and why and how our jobs as leaders is to become the Opener.

Dr. Dale Henry grew up in the foothills of the Smoky Mountains, an area that is bountiful in two things—hospitality and story-telling.  Dr. Dale has been a teacher, principal, Dean of the oldest college in Tennessee, a businessman, author, and a speaker and trainer.  Dale has been in customer service over half his life.  His story-telling ability propelled him as a teacher.  This, combined with his customer service and unique ability to captivate audiences, has sky-rocketed Dale in his speaking career.

Since he began speaking just a few short years ago, corporate, government, and educational agencies call on Dr. Henry regularly to have him train their professionals. In keeping with his book title, The Proverbial Cracker Jack:  How to Get Out of The Box And Become The Prize, Dr. Dale aims to help his audiences become the prize!
