Opening the day will be keynote speaker, Mike Nettles, CIO of Papa John’s. Mike has delivered business solutions for some of the biggest and most respected names in the industry. Mike’s technical expertise extends to encompass the entire technology solution set enabling the business, from the design and implementation of store level order management and fulfillment solutions to the accounting and home office ERP solutions. Furthermore, Mike has taken the entire customer experience journey outside of the confines of traditional technology to bring about world-class consumer facing solutions, redefining the industry standards for what successful digital transformation looks like.

The lunch keynote speaker is Gary Garfield, President & CEO (retired), Bridgestone Americas. Gary Garfield practiced law for nearly 30 years and then, as the CEO of Bridgestone Americas, transformed the company’s culture and business. As a result the company went from a stalling, unsuccessful organization into a company that outperformed the S&P 500 during his tenure. Join Gary as he discusses some major misconceptions of leadership and his 5 keys to being a successful leader.

Closing the day will be keynote speaker, Aaron Thomas, an unassuming Principal & Head Basketball coach from Iowa as he shares the story of his father, and Arthur Asche Award recipient, Ed Thomas. Aaron will share his family’s tragic story and how they rose above it to lead their community rather than wallow in their sorrows.
