DENVER, April 20, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- MHI Global, one of the largest and most impactful sales and service performance companies in the world, today announced its lineup of nationally recognized keynote speakers for its 2016 Elevate North American Summit. These presentations are designed to inspire salespeople and service providers to raise the bar on their performance in the workplace.
Attendees will hear how Northwestern University football coach Pat Fitzgerald elevated his program into a competitive force in one of the toughest conferences in the nation. Fitzgerald is entering his 11th season at Northwestern, and is still building upon the tradition he helped establish as an All-America linebacker for the Wildcats in the mid-1990s and later as an assistant coach. From 2008 to 2012, Fitzgerald guided Northwestern to five consecutive bowl berths, capped by a victory against Mississippi State in the TaxSlayer Gator Bowl, Northwestern's first bowl win since 1948. Northwestern is coming off a 10-win season and an appearance in the Outback Bowl. Fitzgerald is already the winningest coach in school history.
Joseph Grenny, co-founder of VitalSmarts, four-time New York Times best-selling author and a social scientist for business performance, has a passion for and expertise in human behavior and its impact on business performance and relationships. Summit attendees will learn from Grenny how changing human behavior is a key step to increased performance in the workplace.
