Skip Weisman has spoken extensively at PMI events across North America. More than 34 PMI chapters [including PMIW!] have experienced Skip's engaging, interactive and highly practical keynotes, seminars, and trainings.
Skip began his speaking and business coaching business in 2002 after spending 20 years in professional baseball, 16 of which were as CEO of five different franchises. Teams Skip led were affiliated with the Boston Red Sox, Cincinnati Reds, New York Mets, Seattle Mariners, Tampa Bay Rays, and the Texas Rangers.
In 2018 Skip published his first book, Overcoming The 7 Deadliest Communication SINs: A New Standard for Workplace Communication. The book is available on Amazon with a Kindle version or directly through his website at www.7DeadliestCommunicationSins.com.
Jeff Butler is a speaker, author and passionate millennial who helps organizations improve their retention of millennial employees.
In the 1990s, Jeff grew up in a Silicon Valley household where both of his parents built and sold software companies. After graduating from the UC Berkeley with a degree in Computer Science, he spent his time working in some of Silicon Valley's fastest-charging startups. Soon after, he realized that he wanted to follow his parents footsteps and started his journey down the road of entrepreneurship.
By the age of 27 Jeff had written two books, founded three companies, given two TED talks, and managed to get zero speeding tickets but countless parking tickets. Including two towing incidents.
With a fascination in the field of psychology, Jeff focuses his efforts on how to bridge differences in the workplace so people work in an environment they are excited about. He has addressed companies like Google, Amazon, LinkedIn, and lot of others, but listing them out can get pretty boring pretty fast.
