Brian Biro

Controlling the Controllables

Planners were engaged from beginning to end as speaker extraordinaire Brian Biro taught them to stop focusing and worrying about what you don't control and shift your energy to what you do control! The audience learned the difference between character and reputation and to focus on your effort, energy and attitude. Planners left with a deep understanding of how to blend their character and their reputation as one!
