    B3. Staff Retention: Attract and Keep the Best People
    Jay Giannantonio, MS, CPA, CIA
    Does it seem like you spend far too much time recruiting? Do your people leave just as they become productive? If you think your turnover is because Millennials are different from earlier generations, you probably are not looking at the real source of your problem. Learn the changes you should make now!

    12:20 – 2:00
    C3. Lean Accounting: Doing More With Less

    Jay Giannantonio, MS, CPA, CIA
    Many accounting departments generate volumes of information that are of little use to anyone. Lean Accounting begins with examining user needs and focusing effort on the financial management activities that provide real value to the organization. Come hear how to improve accounting processes while reducing effort required.

    2:05 – 3:20
    D3. Driving Performance with Metrics
    Jay Giannantonio, MS, CPA, CIA, Executive Education, Inc.
    Do you struggle to keep budgets current in the face of an everchanging business climate? Do you recognize that last year’s actual spending can be far from what a department’s spending should be? Twentyfirst century performance metrics reduce work, reduce politics, provide flexibility and substantially improve the performance management process. This valuable session shows you how to drive organizational performance using these powerful techniques.

    3:40 – 4:30
    E. Never Give Up – The Survivor Way

    Holly Hoffman
    As we survive life's challenges, we come face to face with fear and uncertainty.  Challenges may allow us to step out of our comfort zone and push ourselves above and beyond our own self-limitations.  It is how we choose to overcome challenges that make us who we are. It is our strength in times of difficulty that prove our character and self worth.  As I share my experience of being on a reality show, I encourage you to think about how you decide to survive on a daily basis.  I will encourage you to think about six words to develop your survival skills. With my six simple words, you can take on any challenge you are faced with. Adversity is not so much contending with problems as it is learning more about who you really are and what is inside of you.  Join me and explore what your true survival skills are.
