Business-Life Balance as a main topic of Leadership for Life 2013 that will take place in brand-new format of Business Conference Concert
Published 3/22/2013

Prague, March 23, 2013 – It has been shown in numerous studies that a deep sense of purpose and passion is the primary “force” behind successful companies and their employee’s personal fulfillment. Forging this positive energy into long-term positive results requires a continuous balance within the personal and professional lives of the people who lead and operate within these successful enterprises.

That is why this year’s Leadership For Life program brings together outstanding Czech and international thought-leaders to address Balance: The Business-Life Connection. No matter how you look at it, your personal and business lives are connected. To do well in life and in business, both must be in balance.

This year we present a unique program—the Czech Republic’s first Business Conference & Concert. Why a Concert? Because we have been fortunate to attract an award-winning composer and an outstanding executive, who have worked together and demonstrated a strong synergy between certain music and creative discussions of important business concepts. Gary Malkin is a popular international speaker and performer. He promotes the power of music for inspiration, creativity, and life/balance integration. Gary has received numerous Emmy, Clio, and ASCAP awards for his work in film, television, commercials, and CD production.

Dr. David Surrenda, founder and CEO of the Leadership Edge is a former Dean of John F. Kennedy University and has consulted for executives in more than 200 multinational companies in high-technology, healthcare, hospitality, manufacturing, food and venture capital.

David and Gary will give a business-concert presentation that will provide an effective backdrop for the discussion by our Czech executives. One of us [Jim Cusumano] will present a lecture based on his new book, Balance: The Business-Life Connection which will be published in April. Attendees will receive the book.

David and Gary will team up again the next day for a Senior Management Workshop for a maximum of 20 executives on Purpose, Passion and Balance—The Means To Corporate Success and Personal Fulfillment. This is a special opportunity through a creative program to gain valuable insight on critical issues from a world-class lineup of talented executives. More information on
