Keynote Speaker:Waldman W-Photo High Res HEADSHOT

Lt. Col. Rob "Waldo" Waldman

 

Winners Never Fly Solo.® We survive solo, but we win together. Flying solo in business? You might think so. But take a good look around. You have support staff, co-workers and managers. You have suppliers, vendors, and distributors. And you have colleagues, family and significant others.  In today’s super-charged, highly competitive world of rapid and constant change, those who build trust and work as a team will dodge the missiles of business and win.

 

By committing yourself to excellence and placing trust in others, you can overcome obstacles, adapt to change, and break performance barriers during adverse times. By placing trust in your wingmen and by being a wingman to your clients, partners and co-workers, there is no business mission you can’t complete!

 

This keynote is not about relating combat tactics to winning in business. Rather, it’s about focusing on what really matters in business – building high performance, trusting teams and fully serving your customers and co-workers. It’s about winning with integrity in highly competitive environments through disciplined training, dedicated teamwork, and courageous leadership.

10:00 a.m. - 11:15 a.m.

The asphalt pavement industry remains optimistic about market conditions as public and private markets continue to expand in most geographical areas of the country. The passage of MAP-21 and the FAST Act have provided multi-year certainty for the marketplace. In addition, thirty-one states have raised revenues helping to boost demand for asphalt paving. Congress is anxious to move a massive tax reform bill and more investment in infrastructure, faster project delivery, regulatory relief, and stronger economic growth, promised by the Trump Administration, will result in more highway construction.

 

This session will assess the state of the asphalt pavement industry at the end of 2017 and discuss the opportunities and challenges for 2018, with a unique focus on the different material segments used in the production of asphalt mix.

 

Key Takeaways:

  • What is the outlook for aggregate and liquid asphalt suppliers?
  • What topics and trends are most likely to impact the asphalt pavement industry?
  • Where are the growth opportunities in 2018?
  • How are companies meeting the challenge of a tight labor market?
  • How is the technology revolution changing the construction industry?
  • What can be done to get Congress to address the revenue shortfall in the Highway Trust Fund?

One of the key differentiating attributes of asphalt is its speed of construction. To quantify this benefit, the Pavement Economics Committee (PEC) funded a research project. Led by Auburn University’s Department of Civil Engineering, session attendees will be introduced to the first nationally-transferable, comprehensive, and inclusive set of metrics that quantify the costs of traffic delay, work zone crashes, and interruptions to local business operations.

Note: Please bring a laptop or tablet to the workshop.

 

Key Takeaways:

WhaleThere is nothing as spectacular or exhilarating as standing at the bow of your privately chartered boat, viewing the dazzling sight of San Diego's skyline. San Diego is well known for its Gray Whale watching season (December-March), and it’s an incredible experience to witness first hand!


The Adventuress is a gorgeous 60 foot sailing catamaran. Her beautiful teak interior and spacious outdoor decks are sure to impress.
