TPIE's 2024 Opening Session is titled, Start With 'Wow'

About the Session:

Not to be missed, TPIE’s Opening Session brings award-winning illusionist and storyteller Harris III. 

In this highly-acclaimed keynote, Harris makes the case that as we approach the opportunities and challenges in life, whether work-related or otherwise, we should actually “Start with Wow.”

Harris lays the groundwork for how leading with “wow” leads to game-changing thinking, culture, and innovation. In a culture of rapid and unprecedented change, he'll help you understand that worry is a misuse of your imagination, and how every member of every team has the capacity to create, innovate, and solve big problems by starting with wow.

Harris's presentation is a transformative experience of magic, storytelling, insights, and ideas that will capture both your mind and heart while offering a new paradigm that leverages awe, innovation, and curiosity to shift narratives and create the future.

There isn’t a better product than plants nor a more passionate group of people than the TPIE audience to take advantage of “Wow” thinking to further spread the magic of plants to people everywhere.

The opening session will be held at 9 a.m. Wednesday, Jan. 17 and is free for everyone with a show badge.
