The PPAI Expo returns to Las Vegas on January 14-18, 2018, and with it the top-flight speakers and education that have become synonymous with the promotional products industry’s premier trade show. On January 15, the engaging Power Keynotes will deliver diverse and compelling ideas that help audiences grow and expand their businesses, change their outlooks on life and careers, and develop professionally and personally.

The Power Keynotes begin with 10-minute presentations from three world-class presenters—David Avrin, Rita Davenport and Seth Mattison—who will give audiences a sneak peek into the core of their message. Audience members can then choose which Power Keynote to attend.  

David Avrin, CSP

Today’s customers have plenty of good options to choose from. David Avrin, a former CEO and business marketing firm owner, author and business branding speaker, will explore the shift in buyer behavior and expectations, while identifying how everyone in a business has a role in eliminating barriers, engaging prospects and creating customer experiences worth sharing.

Rita Davenport, CSP, CPAE

Speaker, humorist and author Rita Davenport has developed an international following with her views on the principles of success, time management methods, goal setting, creative thinking, building self-esteem and confidence, and finding your purpose. At Expo, she’ll speak on defining life’s purpose and how to develop the talents to achieve more, do more and be more.

Seth Mattison

Seth Mattison, an author and futurist, will share his perspectives on the forces affecting the state of the workplace today. Mattison has advised brands and organizations around the world on key shifts in talent management, change and innovation, leadership and the future at work, and he uses that background to arm his audience with practical tools and techniques to deepen their professional connections and amplify their capacity to positively affect change and influence outcomes.
