Make / Happen: Permission Granted

By: David G. Brown
President & CEO – Greater Omaha Chamber

To dream of making a bold impact.
To create a plan and a path forward.
To put action to your ambition.

Permission granted.

On Tuesday, Oct. 11, join us in unleashing the power of big ideas – maybe your own, maybe that of your staff. Register for or consider sending a team to the Chamber’s Make / Happen, a “conference for doers” that is designed to inspire, motivate and activate. What participants chose to Make / Happen – in their careers, workplaces or communities – is entirely up to them.

The success of year one exceeded Chamber expectations. In the days, weeks and months that followed, the stories of impact rolled in – from the difference made locally for job seekers with disabilities to young lives touched 10,000 miles away in Madagascar.

This year, we’re looking to accelerate the Make / Happen mark with three extraordinary keynote speakers:

  • Tiffany Shlain, Emmy-nominated filmmaker – Adaptability & Creativity in the 21st Century
  • Erik Wahl, internationally-renowned artist – Redefine Failure
  • Nick Tasler, internationally-acclaimed author – Make / Happen: The Power of Your Decision

Count on even more motivation, inspiration and education through expertly-led breakout sessions that focus on innovation and creativity, risk taking and bravery, creating an ideal company culture, and more.

Outlook Nebraska, Inc. purchased ten tickets for Make / Happen as soon as we opened registration this year. CEO Eric Stueckrath tells us, “We challenge our team to invest in themselves, our mission and the community – and Make/Happen is a great forum to engage and recharge.”

Tuesday, Oct. 11 / 8 a.m. – 4 p.m.

Check out the complete Make/Happen agenda – and register to join us.

It’s about creating a path – and a plan – to propel careers, dream projects or communities forward. Grant yourself or your employees permission to see what we can make/happen. Our attendees are going to walk away focused, inspired and ready to shake up the status quo. That translates into stronger employees, more productive workplaces – and a more complete community for us all.
