AmyK Hutchens, Business Strategist: Keynote Excerpts


AmyK Hutchens challenges leaders to search their identities and craft a narrative that will rally greatness and build the foundation of a brilliant legacy. Through a theatrical display of four characters inspired by previous think tank clients, she shares the secrets leaders keep and fears they hold back, prompting the audience to rethink how they choose to frame themselves to their company and public.

However, the one issue all her characters bring to the stage is the difference between smart leaders and brilliant leaders: smart leaders know things, but brilliant leaders question what they know, and that is the first step to transforming followers. “My favorite all time business formula,” she shares, “Change the thinking, change the behavior, change the result.”
