Peacemaking Lessons from the War Room is the theme for this year’s 8th Annual Florida Academy of Collaborative Professionals Conference. It will be held May 21 – 23 at the JW Marriott Orlando, Grande Lakes.
If you have never been to an FACP Conference, you have missed the experience of your professional career. As I heard a speaker at the IACP Forum say, “at these conferences no one shakes hands, they hug!”
And this year’s conference looks to be extra special. The opening plenary will feature U.S. Army strategist LTC Katie Crombe and a “Conversation with a United States War Planner: Winning Strategies for Collaboration.” LTC Crombe will provide insight into how planning to avoid conflict, win wars, and conduct diplomacy and peacemaking holds lessons for the Collaborative Process.
There will be a change in this year’s conference. On Saturday there will be a closing plenary luncheon titled “Better Brainstorming: Tools to Generate Ideas and Challenge Assumptions” led by Dr. Kim Macuare. In this interactive keynote address, Dr. Macuare and the audience will explore how are thinking, with a special focus on Dali’s works, processes and ideas, can help us ignite our own creative powers, especially our idea generating powers.
Sandwiched in between these two powerful keynote addresses will be one and a half days of workshops presented by extraordinary Collaborative professionals. Maybe attend Brian Galbraith’s session on making your peacemaking practice profitable or watch him “drop his pants” in another workshop.
Most importantly, there will be workshops that will help fulfill your Credentialing requirements including a workshop on domestic violence and two workshops on ethics.
