Keynote Speaker

A more natural way to lead

Jones Loflin

You’re busy and feeling overloaded. You’d like to build greater capacity in yourself and members of your team, but where would you find the time? If you want to take your leadership to the next level, you need a fresh and practical blueprint. Jones Loflin says that approach is built on four words: Grow, Cultivate, Prune & Harvest. 

In this innovative and engaging presentation built on the timeless practices of a gardener, Jones equips leaders to identify where change is needed in their daily activities and take productive action. It’s time to get “growing” and harvest something better for your people and your organization.
