Don’t miss the AGC Convention Opening General Session, which includes state of the association updates from AGC’s presidents and CEO, and keynote presentation on leadership and life by best-selling author and TED Talk speaker Neil Pasricha.

After Neil Pasricha’s wife left him and his best friend suddenly took his own life, he crash-landed in an empty downtown bachelor apartment. Just twelve months later, he was working directly for the CEO at Walmart, running the International Academy of Digital Arts and Science’s “Best Blog in the world”, and had just published The Book of Awesome which stormed the New York Times bestseller list and sold over a million copies.

The lesson was clear: resilience, change, and growth can come from times of challenge. This inspiring talk is for anybody looking for simple practical ways to lift performance to new heights.
