The 2020 GOSGMP Conference Lineup is packed with exciting, fun and informative Speakers!

The Opening Keynote Speaker is Brent Webb with Rethink the Impossible. Webb's performance is an extraordinary blend of mystery, humor, psychology, and intuition. Brent dazzles the mind as he challenges his audiences to question what is real and what is unreal; what is possible and what is impossible.

Monday Morning brings Debbie Dennis, Department of Administrative Services Chief Procurement Officer speaking on Government Procurement – negotiable clauses vs. non-negotiable, legal terminology, contract language, and attrition. Ms. Dennis will present important contract information and then facilitate a discussion using actual supplier contracts.

Disaster Preparedness is the focus of the afternoon sessions. What role suppliers and planners can play in the event of a statewide emergency and post disaster, how to integrate our community and efforts, and practical discussion when planning an event. Andrew Phelps, Director of the Office of Emergency Management will speak, then lead a discussion on the topic.

Tuesday morning starts with Change Resiliency – practical change management, mindfulness, emotional intelligence and self-regulation practices. Emily Nascimento, Oregon Department of Transportation Learning and Development Consultant and Leadership Coach will inform and empower attendees to create more residency in their own lives.

The Closing Keynote speaker Kathy Gruver Ph.D. will present Conquer Your Stress: Go from Worrier to Warrior – practical stress reduction techniques, self-care, and work/life balance. Dr. Kathy Gruver is an internationally recognized speaker and motivational powerhouse.
