(Re)Defining the Goal: The True Path to Career Readiness in the 21st Century
How is it possible that both university graduates and unfilled job openings are both at record-breaking highs? Our world has changed. New and emerging occupations in every industry now require a combination of academic knowledge and technical ability. With rising education costs, mounting student debt, fierce competition for jobs, and the oversaturation of some academic majors in the workforce, we need to once again guide students towards personality-aligned careers and not just into college.

Extensively researched, (Re)Defining the Goal deconstructs the prevalent “one-size-fits-all” education agenda. The author provides a fresh perspective, replicable strategies, and outlines six proven steps to help students secure a competitive advantage in the new economy. Gain a new paradigm and the right resources to help students avoid the pitfalls of unemployment, or underemployment, after graduation.

How True Lean can revolutionize your business and your life
Lean isn’t just graphs and tools. Lean is a mindset. It is a belief that everything can improve, daily. The key to Lean is to develop you and your people so you see waste and opportunity in everything and cultivate a culture of continuous improvement.  Learn how through very simple changes you can develop your people and business to be exciting, innovative, efficient, incredibly profitable, and exponentially rewarding.  Lean results are undeniably amazing. Phenix Technology, Inc. is a 46 year old company that saw profits increase 1650%, while sales increased 51%, and staff increased by over 100% after implementing Lean principles. All of this in less than two years. ______________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________ “This is the first time I’ve heard Angel speak, and I was glued to my seat. Not only was my mind opened to how much “waste” I had in my business and how much money it was costing me, but I could also see how much “clutter” I unknowingly had in my life as well. I’m excited to go back and begin implementing the principles of lean in my own life and business. His message, is not a quick fix, it’s not a formula, it’s a mindset shift; an entire new way of thinking, and one I believe, if businesses and individuals alike will allow themselves to go through, they too can experience exponential growth. If you are a company or business owner who is ready to scale and break through to the next level of your success, Angel’s program is your “missing piece of the puzzle.” I wouldn’t spend any more money on training until you experience Angel’s program.” - Jeff Crume - Motivational Speaker

As his grandson, it is only appropriate to use thee acronyms below to discuss the rise and fall of the Naugles Fast Food Restaurant Chain. During the rise-elevate is the perfect example to represent how he grew the business. A pest(s) of some sort can easily create the fall.
THE RISE
Experience-self, others, job and life
Love-not just like, but love what you do-get's into your blood! Emotion-Passion, Family, Resilient to criticism {Positive emotions) Values-Integrity, Honesty, Openness
Attitude-Will set the stage each and every day, Show common sense. Teach-Must be willing to teach, follow-up and help to develop good habits Example-Lastly, you must be an example to earn the respect of
 others.
THE   FALL
Patience-Grew and expanded too fast. Acquire assets and payoff liabilities. Over-coming hardship and becoming highly profitable {Profit)
Ego-Others had the ability to enter because of this character flaw . (Opposite of the Emotion above-negative) Self-Pride, Motivation (Success)-people want to be around
Trust-The infamous 'trust me' close!
As you can see by the acronyms above, it takes much more to build a business than it does to lose a business .

Smart Cities, Technology & Startups: Spotlight on SmartTraffic & SmartHealth and the Impacts on Citizens
“Smart Cities” is alternately 1) a hard-to-define buzzword and 2) a trillion dollar global market full of opportunities for startups. Too often, people focus on new, shiny technologies rather than the problems that the new, shiny technologies can help cities solve. In the end, the companies that succeed address pain points for citizens and/or pain points for government employees. This interactive discussion will tackle questions like: what does “smart cities” actually mean? Why should citizens and startups care? It will include inspiring examples from the transportation and health sectors, as well as discussions of untapped opportunities in the smart cities market, plus advice for startups.

Beyond the Logo: Brand Your Business and Stand Out From the Crowd!
Branding is more than a logo, tagline, or website. It’s what your company stands for—inside and out.

Captivating Storytelling for Brand Growth.
When is the last time you met someone and vividly remembered a fact about their life? How about the last time you played an icebreaker game, do you remember what the person on your left said? We are bombarded with facts every second of every day. Out of necessity, we have to filter 99% of it out to function. Now can you instantly name someone’s story that has impacted you deeply? Much easier to recall, right? Stories have a way of sticking to us. A truly captivating story becomes part of us. A gripping story can help us navigate through all of our life’s ups and downs. Today it is more important than ever to embrace “telling your own story”. You are your own brand whether you a middle manager, clerk or founder of a billion dollar empire. Your customers, co-workers, investors, mentors, and mentees need to hear YOUR STORY.

Chris uses humor through storytelling to take you on the adventure of being comfortable in your own story. He uses visualization, effective principles for practicing speaking skills, fun games you play while alone to improve quick-wittedness, and strategies to overcome this fear once and for all. He guides you on how to begin to flush out your own story and why it matters so much. He helps you pinpoint what makes your story so valuable and how it can bring you success in various areas of your life. For all who attend this keynote or breakout session the emotions will be flowing; laughter, fear, encouragement, and confidence. You will leave with actionable steps to boldly and confidently tell YOUR story!
