Leadership and Authenticity Speaker Dr. Todd Dewett Gives Conference Q & A

Ttodd-linkedinhe world’s leading authenticity expert, Dr. Todd Dewett, has been busy with many exciting speaking events! His most recent ones were the LinkedIn Talent Connection Conference and the Houston Innovation Conference & Showcase. 

We recently caught up with Todd, and asked a few questions about each conference.


LinkedIn Talent Connect Conference:

Q: Was this your first time speaking at the conference?

Yes – first time. 

Q: According to their website, this event is all about current and future leaders coming together to network, share ideas, etc. In your opinion, what makes this conference so great?

It’s the world’s greatest collection of talent management experts from the leading organizations on the planet! I was lucky to be selected as the only speaker asked to speak twice – huge honor – and double the opportunity to network and connect. The conversations were utterly stimulating: the future of work, recruiting, interviewing, education, career management – all changing rapidly and the conference let’s you speak directly to those making the biggest changes.

Q: Considering the fact that is a subsidiary company of LinkedIn, was there a lot of (good) pressure in representing them at todd-dewett-linkedin-2a LinkedIn event?

Maybe a little… but I have a huge advantage over the small handful of other authors who also spoke at the conference: I’m a professional speaker! Honestly, I felt no more pressure than I normally would, which isn’t much. I simply love stepping on stage to educate and motivate professionals.

Q: What was the main message of your keynote speech?

The first speech actually focused on managing stress. You might call this one of my “B side” topics. As a leadership personality, there are many closely related topics I’m occasionally asked to address. Since my stress management course at is so popular, the LinkedIn team really wanted me to bring it to life in person for the attendees.

The second talk was a version of my most popular keynote, Show Your Ink. The speech is a collection of stories that highlight the transformational power of authenticity in professional life. There was lots of laughing, learning, and even a bit of crying! Huge fun.


Houston Innovation Conference & Showcase

Q: Is this your first time speaking at the conference?

Yes. I have worked with the team at HTC for a few smaller events, but this time they asked me to anchor their biggest conference of the year with a killer keynote. They do amazing work supporting entrepreneurs and technology ventures in the region so it’s always an honor to work with HTC.

Q: IC&S is all about technology, modern business and creativity – what was the most interesting thing that you saw at the exhibition?todd-dewett-ics

I could mention the many exhibitors demonstrating mind blowing new technologies and products, but something else really caught me attention as I mingled following the keynote. There was a huge “green” or “eco” presence in many of the presentations. It is apparent – and wonderful – the more and more businesses are becoming environmentally and socially conscious.

Q: Because this event puts an emphasis on networking, do you suggest that students interested in these fields should attend, if possible?

There is no doubt students should attend! I don’t believe it is targeted to a student audience, but the ambitious undergraduate or graduate student who does attend will certainly add a lot to their educational experience. 

Q: What did you want to leave your audience thinking about after your keynote speech?

I want them to feel focused, to feel more clarity, to feel more energized. My overarching goal for every speech is to leave every last person in attendance sincerely believing that more is possible. What better gift can you give? #ilovethisjob

Top African American Keynote Speakers to Book for Your 2017 MLK or Black History Month Event

January and February may be months away, but now is the time to start booking the speakers you want for your 2017 MLK or Black History month event.

To help narrow down some options, we provided a historical time line of stories from four African American keynote speakers who would be a great choice:



“We need to get away from this mentality of scarcity, and embrace abundance.”

1850sChris Rabb 

In the 1850s, a slave known as “Jack Rabb” started his own butcher business, Rabb’s Meat Market. His store became so successful he later purchased his own freedom! Jack Rabb’s entrepreneurial spirit lives on in his descendant — Chris Rabb, who is a national thought leader on social entrepreneurship, and the Democratic nominee for state representative in northwest Philadelphia. He’s also an author of the book Invisible Capital: How Unseen Forces Shape Entrepreneurial Opportunity, which addresses modern US business, structural inequality, and community wealth-building. Chris Rabb represents today’s quintessential business man who continues to add to his list of achievements.



“Your best, is good enough.”

1992Eric Boles

Moving forward to the early 90’s, Eric Boles officially started his NFL career when he got drafted to the New York Jets. While playing for that team, and the Green Bay Packers, Eric learned the principles of team dynamics and leadership. Now retired, Eric is President of The Gamechangers Inc., a training and consulting company that teaches leadership, team and personal development to some of the most successful companies in the world. So far Eric has presented throughout North America and Europe, and has earned the reputation of being a dynamic speaker.

After receiving her Bachelors of Science Degree in Mathematics, and a Master’s of Science Degree in Applied Mathematics from California State University Northridge, Olympia LePoint began her career at NASA as a rocket scientist. Over the course of her career, she helped launch 28 space shuttle missions into space. It’s no wonder she’s known as “The New Einstein” on TV! In addition to this, Olympia is currently an author, professional speaker and educator who helps people overcome their fears. In her presentations, Olympia teaches her audience how to “Reprogram Their Brains” to overcome fear, and ultimately achieve success.



“I think that life… is really about different perspectives.”

PresentDr. Rachael Ross

Dr. Rachael Ross is a true testament to the American Dream. She is a practicing board-certified family medicine physician and sexologist, and is with her family’s health office.

How to Minimize Decision Fatigue with Jones Loflin

Stressing over little decisions in life is something that many people do. Whether it’s picking out an outfit, choosing where you want to eat for lunch or what dessert you want, we all experience moments like these. Overall, this isn’t something to be concerned about unless these trivial decisions are taking up too much time and thought, and leaving less mental energy for more important things.

In his article, “How To Minimize Decision Fatigue In Your Day“, Jones Loflin explains what decision fatigue is and how to conserve your mental energy.

How To Minimize Decision Fatigue In Your Day

By Jones Loflin

Innovative Yet Practical Solutions

It all seemed so harmless. The cashier at the coffee shop handed me the receipt and said, “The coffee mugs are to your right. Once you have picked your mug, just choose your favorite coffee. Enjoy!” “How cool,” I thought. “I get to choose my cup.” And that’s when things got ugly.About Jones Loflin Page

I spent the next five minutes trying to determine which coffee cup felt the best in my hand. I examined the thickness of the cup rims to imagine which one would feel best on my lips. And size, of course, was a factor as well. I made a choice, but couldn’t help but feel if I had taken longer, I could have made a better selection. And we won’t talk about the three minutes I took trying to decide which coffee I should put in that chosen vessel.

My comical journey to get a cup of coffee mirrors a more serious challenge we face today. We have so much information (coffee cups) and freedom of choice (pick any one you like) that we are depleting our mental energy on trivial things, leaving us precious few resources to make good decisions on items of greater significance. The condition is most commonly called “Decision Fatigue.”

Wikipedia defines decision fatigue as “referring to the deteriorating quality of decisions made by an individual, after a long session of decision-making.”

If decision fatigue is a common occurrence in your day, here are seven steps you can take to conserve (and/or replenish) your mental energy so the decisions you make are more likely to bring the outcome you most want:

Schedule tasks requiring a significant decision to be made to the morning hours. Remember that the act of making decisions is as draining on your mental energy as running is to your physical energy. Mornings are typically those times when your decision-making skills are at their best. There’s a reason you frequently hear people struggling with a big decision say, “I’m going to sleep on it.”

Choose one important factor on which to make your decision-and make it. Remind yourself that it is rare for any decision to be perfect. As you move forward you can make smaller decisions about how to address other factors. The key is to get moving. Remember that in many situations, done is better than perfect.

Limit your choices. Numerous studies have shown that too many choices invoke mental paralysis when it comes to decision making. Having less choices gives us less data from which to dissect (and get lost) and moves us toward a solution more quickly. When possible, quickly narrow your choices to three, and evaluate only those three from which to arrive at a decision.

Use a timer to improve (and streamline) your decision-making process. With all the information at our fingertips, we can research almost anything indefinitely and still not come up with the perfect solution. To force yourself to prioritize what information and resources you will use to come to a conclusion, set a timer and start working through the process. When the timer rings, make a decision and stick to it. An effective tool for teams to create a healthy sense of urgency to move toward a decision is to use something like a Time Timer.

Make decisions that free you from making more decisions. This idea comes from Brian Bailey. An example he gives is planning meals days in advance instead of trying to make a choice after a mentally exhausting day at work. Another example might be your wardrobe. It’s no secret why people like Mark Zuckerburg and President Barack Obama limit their wardrobe… they know they want their mental energy available for making much bigger decisions.

Leverage the mental energy of others. You’ve seen it happen before. You’re struggling with making a major (or even minor) decision and you present your dilemma to a friend or someone you trust. In just a few minutes (or seconds) they offer a solution that you couldn’t find after struggling for hours. They tend to be more objective and look at the situation with less personal bias, fears, etc. And while we’re on the subject of others, why not let them make more decisions. Stop being the decider of everything.

Be more intentional about restoring your mental energy. After you’ve made several decisions, take a few moments to replenish your mental resources. Take a brief walk. Laugh. Have a positive conversation with someone or offer words of encouragement to others. Reflect on recent successes you’ve experienced at work or with your family. Enjoy a tasty treat (in moderation of course).

In my coffee cup conundrum, I wasted way too much time on the choosing, which left me less time to enjoy the coffee and spend quality time with a friend. It’s the same with making larger decisions. The longer you take to make a decision, the less time you have to experience the benefits (and learn from the consequences) of the choice and move forward with your goals or ideas.

Where is decision fatigue keeping you from making quicker and wiser decisions?

Jones Loflin is a global keynote speaker on innovative yet practical workplace challenges and opportunities specific to the critical needs in today’s marketplace. He is the author of several books, including the award-winning, Juggling Elephants. Jones is a leader in solutions for individuals, groups and businesses dealing with lack of engagement, satisfaction and retention and all the tools to support balanced, productive lives.

Honoring National Hispanic Heritage Month with Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch

National Hispanic Heritage Month is every year from September 15 to October 15, it recognizes the contributions made from the Hispanic culture to the United States. The celebratory month started off as a week in 1968, but by 1988 it was officially made into a month. This year the theme is “Honoring our Heritage. Building our Future.”



Consuelo Castillo Kickbusch is a U.S. Army veteran with Spanish roots, an incredible story and important message. As a child, Consuelo faced poverty and discrimination, especially with her education. Fortunately, she managed to overcome all the adversity by graduating from college. She then joined the army, and made history when she became the highest-ranking Hispanic woman in the Combat Support Field of the U.S. Army.

After retiring from the army, Consuelo decided that she wanted to give back to the youth who might be experiencing the same challenges that she did. Shortly after in 1996, she founded the Educational Achievement Services, Inc. (EAS), a human development company. EAS strives to inspire, motivate and develop the next generation of leaders.

Consuelo is passionate about guiding young people to their full potential. She serves as an example to the National Hispanic Heritage Month’s theme by helping to build the futures of the youth.

In addition to all this, Consuelo is a renowned and passionate speaker who shares her story with people of all ages. From topics like education, leadership and cultural diversity, she connects with her audience and delivers presentations that truly resonate with them.
