2016 Fall Convention
Share |

There is no time like the present for you to join other concrete repair and restoration professionals and take advantage of the relationships you have with other ICRI members around the world. ICRI has put together a series of 18 technical presentations designed to give you what you need to be successful in this industry. Contacts, education, knowledge, and experience—all can be found in one place.

This convention will provide an opportunity for both the novice and seasoned professionals to expand their understanding of the industry and of urban reconstruction. Take this opportunity to see, first hand, how the advantages of ICRI membership can work for you at the ICRI 2016 Fall Convention. Hear what is happening, see who’s making it happen, and get yourself involved in the process.

What does an award-winning entrepreneur, a TEDx Speaker, a baconatarian (that's a vegetarian who still eats bacon), funky sock lover, and a former rapper (who opened for the Wu-Tang Clan) have in common?

They are all the same guy!

Introducing Keynote Speaker Jason Goldberg

Jason Goldberg

Luncheon & Keynote Presentation
Thursday, November 11, 2016
12:00-1:30 pm

Jason “JG” Goldberg is a geek, turned entrepreneur, turned international and transformational speaker, trainer, coach, co-host of The Not-So-Serious Life Web TV Show.

After spending nearly 15 years in technology, followed by co-founding an award-winning executive transportation company and then serving as CEO of a technology commercialization firm in partnership with NASA, JG decided that there was something more he could be doing to make an impact in people’s lives and businesses.

He now blends his love of personal growth, comedy (and sometimes even rap music), with his speaking, training and workshops to help people open their minds, transform their lives and businesses and pee their pants from laughter (...okay maybe not literally on that last one, but no judgment if it happens).

JG brings the Aha’s and the Haha’s to thousands of aspiring and inspiring leaders, entrepreneurs and groups every year to create the mindset and the skill set to become powerful Self-Leaders, be more prosperous, have more fun and create a bigger impact in the world!

You won’t want to miss Jason based on what others have said:

“Jason spoke at our annual conference and it was fantastic! His high-energy, impactful teaching, and hilarious delivery kept the audience engaged, enthusiastic and energized! It wasn’t just some rah-rah, feel good session - Jason gave us all practical, powerful tools that we were able to implement immediately to become self-leaders in our lives and businesses.”

JG is also the author of the best-selling book on (SELF) Leadership “Prison Break: Vanquish the Victim, Own Your Obstacles, and Lead Your Life” and the Founder and Chief Humorizer at Not-So-Serious University.

You can connect with him and probably see way more pictures of his pit bull Lola than you’d like at www.TheJasonGoldberg.com and www.FacebookJason.com.
