Meet Our Speakers

Jay Rao DrivingSales Presidents Club 2018 Keynote Intro

Jay Rao: Using Entrepreneurial Leadership to Navigate Uncertainty

Professor, Strategy and Innovation, Babson College

How do you innovate and change in a competitive environment?

The world is experiencing increasing levels of uncertainty. This new world requires a different type of leader – the entrepreneurial leader. Entrepreneurial Leaders lead and navigate change.

This change is cultural, and strategy, innovation and leadership cannot be addressed independently and in isolation. Entrepreneurial Leaders are risk managers as well as
uncertainty navigators.

Jay Rao will discuss how to make decisions using incomplete information and how to forge into the future with disciplined and deliberate experiments that combine emergent and analytical strategies.

Dave Berke DrivingSales Presidents Club 2018

Dave Berke: The Flawed Notion of Perfection

Former Top Gun Pilot and Instructor, Lt Col, United States Marine Corps (Ret.)

There is no such thing as perfection. Even in fields with extremely slim margins of error. Mistakes happen.


If you’re looking for perfection in your employees you won’t get honesty and candor.


If you want people to hide mistakes, tell them perfection is your goal.


Instead, you need to build an organization that talks about mistakes and looks for opportunities to learn and grow from them.

A former Top Gun pilot and Instructor, Dave Berke will explain how the top pilots in the world use their mistakes to improve performance and how you can apply this thinking in your dealership.
