UNThink: The Art of Leadership Erik Wahl

Erik Wahl Mug

Maintaining a successful growing brand/practice in today’s ever-changing market is difficult. Your team is working exceptionally hard, but could potentially be worn out, confused, or maybe even heading down the wrong path. You hired them because they seemed perfect for the job, but over time their focus has lost its laser-like precision. There are days when—as their leader—you simply wish you could push the restart button. You know your group is talented but in desperate need of new motivation, a tool to realign your troops and revitalize them to perform their jobs as you both originally envisioned.

As an internationally recognized graffiti artist, business strategist and a #1 best-selling business author of "UNThink," Wahl redefines the term "keynote speaker." Wahl’s on-stage painting seamlessly becomes a visual metaphor to the core of his message, encouraging organizations toward profitability through innovations and superior levels of performance.

2015 Annual Session Highlights

From the views of Mt. Rainier to top-notch education, the AAPD Annual Session in Seattle was nothing short of spectacular! The weekend kicked off with the Preconference Course, "Start Monday Smiling, Not Stressing," and ended Sunday night at the steampunk-style Presidents’ Farewell Dinner celebrating another successful meeting. Attendees raved about keynote speaker Frank Abagnale and his riveting journey from con man to the honest and upstanding family man he is today. Thursday night’s Welcome Reception had a little bit of something for everyone: Chihuly Gardens displayed the magnificent work of Chihuly himself, the Space Needle offered a breath-taking view from the top, and the Spazmatics played the night away at EMP. The Scientific Program Committee put together an exceptional lineup for the program that included: Dr. Joel Berg, a popular new dentist program by Garrett Gunderson and topics from customer service to dental traumatology.

Thank you to our 2015 Annual Session sponsors, we appreciate your generous support.
