ECIA Announces Opening Keynote Speaker for Executive Conference

Rebecca Heiss Helps Us Find Adventure in Ambiguity.

The ECIA Executive Conference Committee is pleased to announce the name of the opening keynote session title, “FEAR(LESS)™ Mindset What's Your Story,” presented by Rebecca Heiss. Our brains aren’t built for this rapidly changing world… But they are adaptable. By consciously crafting a mindset that helps us lean into these challenges rather than treat them as threats, we’ll be able to avoid the burnout, frustration, and turnover that might otherwise plague us and our clients. And, perhaps most importantly, we can deepen the connections we had to the purpose and people that drew us into this industry we love to begin with.
