Presentation Title: Why Leaders are the New Motivators

In today’s dynamic business environment, It is just impossible to become an effective leader without being a great motivator, communicator, and supporter of your team. A great leader thinks of their people much more than an expendable resource. They are there to create a circle of safety, certainty, and trust. An environment where people really do matter. If we study the world's greatest leaders, we will find them all to be extraordinary motivators. In this session, you will learn how to become an effective leader within your organization and talk about your ideas, but you will do so in a way which increases the motivation and satisfaction level of your team. 


About the Speaker: Ramin Jahedi

RaminRamin Jahedi is the founder of OpticTour Google Trusted Agency, and he serves as the company’s President and Chief Executive Officer. In addition to leading OpticTour, Ramin is a talk show host, speaker, and a digital marketing consultant to many companies and provides coaching and consulting to top-level managers and executives. He is regarded for his out-of-the-box thinking and highly creative approach to addressing complex digital marketing and branding issues.

Prior to founding OpticTour, Ramin worked as a Chief Operating Officer for Carey International, one of the largest transportation companies, and also as a corporate consultant in service, management, and sales for Jack in the Box and Blockbuster Corporation. As a consultant, he saw the effects of "tunnel vision" where corporations tend to focus more on the bottom line than on the people who are managing it. By neglecting their lower-level employees, many large businesses miss out on the wellspring of potential that exists within each individual.

With his full range of management experience under his belt, Ramin set out to share his knowledge. He feels a sense of honored duty to help others to achieve the happiness he feels every day. Ramin thrives on inspiring others to never give up through helping organizations learn practical methods for motivating themselves towards ever increasing success.

Ramin holds a Bachelor of Science in Business Information Systems from the University of Phoenix School of Business.
