Quint Studer Confirmed Keynote

Quint StuderQuint Studer - businessman, visionary, entrepreneur, author and more - is confirmed as a keynote speaker!

He has helped leaders at all levels in just about all industries and we are proud to bring him to Birmingham for our Symposium. Join us and find out why it is said that he "has a gift for translating complex business strategies into simple, doable leader behaviors that allow organizations to achieve long-term success and profitability."

He understands that you were called to health care because you desire to help others. And that is why his latest book is called, "The Calling: Why Healthcare Is So Special." He also understands that the industry can be draining and he wants to help you hang on to your ideals and your drive and your commitment to others and yourself.

In the same way he delivers guidance in his books, Studer's keynote will deliver practical, easy-to-digest advice mixed with heartfelt stories that will help administrators, clinicians, and all those invested in delivering the finest health care.

We can't wait for you to join us and see him!
