Mark Scharenbroich: Nice Bike – Making Connections That Move People

Tuesday, October 16

8:30 – 9:45 am

Free for all attendees and exhibitors.

Strong connections are vital in our lives, yet in today’s “virtual world” it is often difficult to make meaningful connections. Nice Bike acts as a powerful catalyst to help build stronger, more unified teams. The message inspires audience members to be more engaged and passionate about connecting with others.

Join Emmy award-winning speaker, Mark Scharenbroich as he takes you for a fun ride on how to be effective at making meaningful connections in both your professional and personal life. His Nice Bike principle is supported by three strong actions: Acknowledge, honor and connect. Part motivational speaker, part thought-provoker and pure comedic entertainer – Mark Scharenbroich will inspire, teach and engage you with Nice Bike.

 

Thank you 2018 IFAI Expo Speakers for your expertise, commitment and willingness to share your passion for advancing the Industrial Fabrics Industry forward.
