Audience QA


The 2015 SBC will kick-start its Education Sessions on Wednesday, November 4, with an Opening Plenary Session featuring Keynote Speaker:



David Nour, Global Business Advisor

A recognized strategist and thought leader on the topic of business relationships, David's high-energy keynote address will get attendees thinking about "relationship economics," "adaptive innovation" and "return on impact."

Following the luncheon--and throughout the three-day event--numerous concurrent Education Sessions will be held covering topics of interest to all businesses--large and small--looking to succeed in today's marketplace.

The Plenary Session on Thursday will expand upon the contributions small businesses make to Response and Recovery. Leaders from the Army, Navy and Air Force will take part in a moderated panel to discuss where the relationship between government agencies and small businesses is headed in the future.

On Friday, the Keynote Luncheon and Awards Ceremony will feature Lt. Gen. Russell Honoré, USA (Ret.), Commander, Joint Task Force Katrina. With an emphasis on the importance of innovation, risk assessment and social entrepreneurship, Gen. Honoré will provide valuable insight and strategies to solve a broad array of issues—from jobs and energy to healthcare and technology. This session will set the tone for the robust program that will serve as the foundation for the three-day event.


Keynote Speaker, Lt. Gen. Russel L. Honoré, USA (Ret.)

In the 10 years since Hurricane Katrina, much has changed. Drawing from lessons learned as Commander of the Joint Task Force Katrina--and his more than 37 years of military experience--Gen. Honoré will bring his bold, no-nonsense leadership approach to help SBC attendees better identify and prepare for the challenges of the future. He also will reveal leadership tactics that optimize efficiency and effectiveness of operations and outline the importance of developing the next generation of problem-solvers.

Individuals looking to form teaming agreements and partnerships will find the Matched Networking Sessions profoundly helpful. These sessions focus on matching specific large business and government agency needs with the small businesses that can fulfill them. This format should allows both parties an opportunity to discuss real business opportunities and lay the foundation to develop new client-consultant relationships for small businesses.
