Expert Bio 

WARREN BERGER developed his inquiry skills as a journalist for The New York Times but first declared himself a “questionologist” with the 2014 publication of his best-selling book, A MORE BEAUTIFUL QUESTION. The book shows that questioning has been the starting point of everything from the cell phone, to Netflix, to the International Red Cross.

In the book, Warren introduces an original framework (the “Why/What If/How” cycle of inquiry) that can be applied to challenges and problems. A More Beautiful Question has been embraced by the NASA space program, the National Science Foundation, companies such as Starbucks, Chanel, Oracle, and Pepsi, as well as by major universities around the country.

Warren has keynoted at the DesignThinkers Conference in Toronto and the International Women’s Conference in Rome. He also regularly visits elementary and high schools around the country, urging teachers to try to encourage more questioning in the classroom.

In the fall of 2018, Warren released a follow-up book on questioning, THE BOOK OF BEAUTIFUL QUESTIONS: The Powerful Questions That Will Help You Decide, Create, Connect, and Lead.

In addition to authoring eight books (including the acclaimed GLIMMER, one of the first books on “design thinking”), Warren has appeared on NPR’s All Things Considered, CNN, and NBC’s Today Show, and he contributes regularly to Harvard Business Review, Fast Company, and Psychology Today, where he writes the “Questionologist” column.

Zac Logsdon is CEO and founder of Old Hat, a strategic marketing company specializing in the sports and entertainment industry. Over the past two decades, he has worked with more than 150 sports and entertainment organizations to help drive attendance to their events and venues and improve the experience for fans and attendees.

Zac has successfully run Old Hat for more than 15 years, having grown it from one employee with one client to employing nearly a hundred people (combined) over that period and partnering with nearly every major collegiate athletic program in the nation along with multiple professional organizations.

Additionally, Zac has written two books on the topic of sports and/or entertainment marketing. The first, If Not for Athletics, is a collection of inspirational stories from athletics administrators around the nation about times when they witnessed the true power and impact athletics can provide.

Recently, Zac published his second book, Winning is Not a Strategy: A Game-Changing Approach to Driving Attendance, which is a guide for those charged with reversing the trend of declining attendance at sporting events. While focused on athletics, his second book contains methods and advice that are applicable to any industry looking to increase traffic at their events and venues.

Zac also hosts two podcasts based on his books. The first, Stop the Clock, retells inspirational sports stories in the words of those who lived them. And the Winning is Not a Strategy podcast poses a weekly question that is addressed by experts in the athletics industry.

Expert Bio 

Chris Prefontaine has been in the trenches of the real estate industry for over 25 years. His company has done over $80 million in real estate transactions. He is a practitioner at heart — which is why his company still buys between 4 to 10 properties each month where Chris and his family practices what he preaches. He is the author of the best selling book, "Real Estate on Your Terms."

Chris is an expert at addressing the fundamental problem most business owners struggle with: how to get their wealth out of their business and into other assets just in case they don't have an opportunity to sell the business (or even if they do sell the business). The diversification of assets can provide a very balanced portfolio and real estate may be one of those investment strategies to consider while building out a balanced financial plan.

Chris is also the host of the annual event, "QLS Live" where real estate investors across the country come together for 2-1/2 days to mastermind, share experiences, and learn from experts teaching strategies for building and scaling their real estate businesses.

  • Active listening creates the space for managers and staff to work better.
  • Accountability has been used too often to shift blame rather than create positive business results and it is time that we reclaimed that tool and message in our businesses.
  • If you don't expect resistance to change, such as in a feedback 1:1, you are less likely to create that resistance in your interaction. Too often, we create what we are hoping to avoid by putting attention on an undesirable aspect of our communications.
