Leo was recently asked to pinch hit as a keynote speaker at a conference in San Diego for a highly specialized audience. Realizing his “power of peers” message had little to do with what the conference was all about, he understood it had everything to do with why they were there – to learn, connect and grow. This inspired him to create a new keynote titled, Maximizing the Value of Your Conference Experience. During our conversation today, we talk about how to tap into the greatest resource at these kind of events – your fellow attendees.
We also touch on the Washington Nationals sweep of the St. Louis Cardinals and the value of the special people who make a difference in our lives.
Today, Leo and Randy discuss working together. This conversation was prompted by Leo’s upcoming trip to Oslo, Norway where he’ll speak, then serve on a panel discussion at the Executive Growth Alliance.

Leo’s books – The Power of Peers and What Anyone Can Do
The What Anyone Can Do Minuteis a new video series created to accomplish two goals: 1) Give you a valuable takeaway in one minute; and, 2) use that takeaway as fuel to take a deeper dive toward doing the things anyone can do that most of us never will.
I’ll release 2-3 videos per week on my LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter feeds. They’ll also appear on my website’s Video page, where you’ll find the entire collection as they go live. I’ve released two this week already and by visiting https://leobottary.com/videos, you’ll get to preview the one I’ll be releasing in the next few days.
