Meeting Highlights

The Science of Emotional Intelligence
with Bill Benjamin

Monday, October 22, 9:00–10:15 AM

Bill Benjamin has a rare perspective – he has advanced degrees in Mathematics and Computer Science and has 25 years of real-world business experience as a senior leader. Through his keynote presentation on Emotional Intelligence, attendees discover:

  • What the brain does under pressure and specific tools and strategies to effectively manage situations of tension and conflict;
  • Self-awareness: understanding the impact of your leadership style and how to win the hearts and minds of people by connecting to the emotions that drive their behavior; and
  • Engaging stories from the front-lines of individuals who are stepping up and winning in the most challenging, pressure-filled circumstances.

Bill is a partner at the Institute for Health and Human Potential (IHHP), a successful international research and training company, named one of the “Fastest Growing Companies” in the “Fast 100” ranking in PROFIT Magazine. Bill also contributed to the New York Times and Amazon bestselling book Performing Under Pressure, co-authored by IHHP’s JP Pawliw-Fry and noted psychologist Hendrie Weisinger.
