Marcus Buckingham to deliver keynote speech at ISPA Conference

By Jane Kitchen    29 Nov 2018
In his keynote presentation, Buckingham will provide attendees with insights on how they can harness and apply employee strengths and how those strengths can translate into long-term success for their organisations

The International SPA Association (ISPA) has announced that Marcus Buckingham will be the day two General Session keynote at the 2019 ISPA Conference & Expo, on 12 September in Las Vegas. Buckingham is a leading authority and best-selling author on employee productivity and best practices of leadership and management.

Buckingham’s goal as a ‘strengths revolutionist’ is to build a world where people are passionate about finding love and purpose in their work. Founder of the Love + Work Movement, Buckingham encourages people to create an impactful community that believes everyone has boundless potential.

“Marcus Buckingham’s insights on how to maximise workplace strengths will allow our attendees to build stronger, happier teams,” said ISPA president Lynne McNees. “His unparalleled knowledge on how to strengthen employees makes him the perfect keynote as we look to fill jobs within the growing spa industry.”

In his keynote presentation, Buckingham will provide attendees with insights on how they can harness and apply employee strengths and how those strengths can translate into long-term success for their organisations.

As a former senior researcher at the Gallup organisation for nearly two decades, he challenged preconceptions about achievement to get to the core of what drives success. He has continued this research and now brings these ideas to companies such as Toyota, Facebook, Coca-Cola and Microsoft.

In his latest book, StandOut 2.0, Buckingham provides the framework for you to discover your strengths, and those on your team, and act on them. This best-selling book includes an assessment and report on your most dominant strengths and acts as an guide for building on your assets and helping your team and organisation.

In addition to First, Break All the Rules and StandOut 2.0, Buckingham has also authored Now, Discover Your Strengths; The One Thing You Need to Know, Go Put Your Strengths to Work, and StandOut. Buckingham’s new book, Nine Lies about Work: A Freethinking Leader’s Guide to the Real World is scheduled to be released in April 2019.

Susan Cain was previously announced as the opening keynote for the 2019 ISPA Conference & Expo.
