    Be Sure to Add these Keynotes to your MAGIC Schedule!

    We know every one of you is interested in being a high performer and exploring professional approaches to continuous improvement on the job!  Join us for lunch on Tuesday, April 24th, with Brian Elms, Author of “Peak Performance” and the former Director of Peak Academy and Analytics for the City and County of Denver. Brian started his career in public service after graduating from Regis University and joining the National School and Community Corps (AmeriCorps) as a team leader. Brian is a certified Lean Black Belt, a Six Sigma Green Belt and Change Management Professional. In his former role as Director of the Peak Academy, he developed curriculum, training and consulting services that focus on employee-led performance management and continuous improvement.  Brian’s discussion will be lively and entertaining as well as inspirational.  Ever wonder how you could make government services fun, innovative, and empowering to citizens and employees? As Brian says, “Innovation takes grit!”  Come learn from one of the best in process improvement and you will come away from lunch with your head swimming with ideas to stretch your performance every day.
