Keynote Speaker #1: Harold C. Lloyd

Although Harold may not be the brightest looking presenter you’ve ever met, he may be the most passionate.  Harold loves the retail and supermarket business; learning from his own experiences and from the experiences of others.  Most of all he loves TEACHING what he has learned.

Harold’s passion for teaching permeates his presentations.  Over the years, he has created 30 top rated seminars and written 4 books.  He has been a featured presenter at the food industry’s most prestigious conventions for almost 30 years.

Harold is a graduate of the Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania and holds an MBA with honors from the University of Chicago.  He has been the president of a company with 1000 employees and 14 stores and was a franchisee of a 3-unit, award-winning family restaurant group.  Harold is a proud father of 3 and lives in Virginia Beach, VA with his wife, Deanna.

Harold has said, “I’d rather see the audience taking notes than to hear their applause.”  This remark speaks to his intense desire to make a meaningful connection with his audience, which is his ultimate objective.

Topic for Day 1: “Out & About. Making it Happen.”

Topic for Day 2: “ Employee Retention Rules”
