Opening Keynote - Kevin O'Leary, Shark Tank

Our opening keynote, Shark Tank's Kevin O'Leary, kicks off the Summit with a bang. Drawing on his encyclopedic knowledge of finance, investing, economics, and business, he can cover any topic thrown at him. Get the chance to ask him the questions at the forefront of your mind on the issues that matter most to the HVACR industry. How, for instance, will the global recession affect our industry, what can you do to protect your company, and come out stronger than ever?

Our CEO, Talbot Gee had a chance to sit down with O'Leary prior to the Summit. Check out Talbot's reaction to their meeting here.

Closing Keynote - Jim Donald, former CEO of Starbucks

To close out #HARDISummit, we have Jim Donald, former CEO of Starbucks, Pathmark Supermarkets, and Extended Stay Hotels, and currently the co-chairman of the board of Albertson’s. With a reputation for turning around financially ailing companies, Donald will speak to his "crisis-proof" leadership components for relationship building. Whether you are the leader of a company bringing together the collective strengths of global brands, a distributor guaranteeing “no stock-outs,” or the industry leader in bending sheet metal, now is the time to separate yourself from all the others because all the others are not thinking about this in our current environment. Jim's components will also address the ability to scale and of course, make more money. Catch this session Wednesday, December 9th, 12:00 pm ET.
