• Express Employment Professionals Hosts Ninth Annual Leadership Simulcast
    Featuring Gen. Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.), Mark King and Josh Sundquist

    Columbus, IN, October 01, 2018—Express Employment Professionals of Columbus is hosting the 2018 Refresh Leadership Simulcast, a nationwide leadership event featuring Secretary of State Gen. Colin L. Powell, USA (Ret.), former president of adidas North America, Mark King, and author, speaker, and Paralympian Josh Sundquist.


    Back for its ninth year, the Refresh Leadership Simulcast attracts more than 9,000 attendees annually throughout the U.S. and Canada. The event focuses on how leaders can reach the next level, inspire their people and become more effective in their role. The event will be simulcast on Wednesday, Oct. 24 at Columbus Learning Center, 4555 Central Avenue, Columbus, IN 47203.

    Registration opens at 8:15 a.m. and the simulcast begins at 8:45 a.m.


    King kicks off the event with “Lessons in Leadership: Competing with Creativity.” This innovation expert is the former president of adidas North America, and challenges leaders to inspire a workforce of creativity and confidence to create things consumers won’t believe are possible.


    The lineup continues with Gen. Powell who served as the Secretary of State from 2001 – 2005 under President George H.W. Bush. Drawing from his experience as a leader on the world stage, Powell will illustrate what it takes to be a successful leader, particularly in times of great change and difficult crises.


    Rounding out the lineup is the dynamic Sundquist. This humorous and inspirational Paralympian is known for his ski racing training motto: 1MT1MT, one more thing, one more time. This phrase refers to what leaders can do to elevate their performance in sales, customer service, quality improvement, leadership and more. Sundquist’s goal is for the audience to walk away from his motivational presentation with a fresh perspective on everything they have to be grateful for, resolve to overcome whatever challenges they face and a commitment to do one more thing, one more time to reach their potential.


    “We are proud to present this exciting opportunity for business leaders from throughout our community,” said Mike Heffner, Columbus Express franchisee. “Each speaker in this year’s distinguished lineup will share their insights and experience on what makes great leaders.”


    “Express has a strong presence in the Columbus and surrounding areas, and we are pleased to offer the Refresh Leadership Simulcast as a way to give back to the business community.”


    Business leaders, human resources professionals, chamber of commerce officials and chamber members can register at RefreshLeadership.com/Simulcast. There is no cost to attend the simulcast; however, Express is accepting donations for Riley Children’s Hospital. This event qualifies for 2.25 HRCI/SHRM credits.
