Title: Change Management: Why Most Companies Don’t Get It

Topic:Business has been and always will be about change. Some
companies have no methodology to implement change. Others
have a program, but fail at it routinely. This presentation explores
the valleys and turns of making change work.

Keynote Speaker:Doug Thorpe, CEO & Managing Partner, HeadwayExec, LLC


Professionally, Doug has spent most of his career in financial services, banking and mortgage finance, earning a reputation of excellence and innovation. He has served in the forefront of several major national banking situations, providing senior executive leadership to resolve major transactional and platform change or regulatory response. Doug’s clients realized significant cost savings, more effective operations, and higher profitability by using his business process outsourcing models.

On the heels of the national financial crisis started in 2007, Doug saw a need in his community. He founded a non-denominational, faith based career transition organization called Jobs Ministry Southwest. During the next few years, over 4,500 clients attended training, joined work groups, and participated in job search coaching programs sponsored and hosted by the organization.

Today, Doug provides business coaching and consulting services for companies and executives seeking fresh ideas for development of high potential leaders, C-suite one-on-one, and team development. In particular, anyone thinking about achieving work, life, and faith balance should contact Headway Executive Coaching.
