Keynote Speaker

Isaac LidskyIsaac Lidsky - CEO, ODC Construction and Best-Selling Author

"Isaac Lidsky may possess the most eclectic resume in business. Over the years, he has been a child TV star, a Supreme Court Clerk (for Justices Sandra Day O'Connor and Ruth Bader Ginsburg), and the co-founder of an internet startup.  Lidsky has used his gift for logistics to build ODC Construction into one of the fastest-growing construction businesses,' transforming an unsophisticated $11 million concrete subcontractor that was hemorrhaging money into an industry-leading $150 million construction services company - in 5 years."
-Inc. Magazine, October 2015

In March 2017, Lidsky's book Eyes Wide Open was published, quickly named a Top 10 Leadership Book of 2017 by The Washington Post.  In the book, he explains the powerful insight that inspired him to achieve his most ambitious dreams despite losing his sight to a blinding disease: it isn't external circumstances, but how we perceive and respond to them, that governs our reality.

Using his three successful startups as examples - one being a construction services business in Florida ($15 to $150 million in 5 years), Lidsky will show you how success is a matter of definition, that effort without purpose is entropy, and when we labor without a goal, we are destined to fail.  You'll learn how to reinvent yourself and create the organization that expresses achievement as you see it.

Make the SAME 2017 Small Business Conference a part of your plan! See you November 15-17 in Pittsburgh!
