DR. KEN BAYLOR
Advanced Leadership Solutions, LLC



One of our keynote speakers will be Dr. Ken Baylor, with Advanced Leadership Solutions, LLC. This dynamic presentation will trumpet a call to action for authentic leadership, service excellence, and improved safety performance that will have a positive impact on overall operational execution. The negative influence of bad habits and solid waste industry myths will be highlighted. In addition, workable and practical solutions for doing simple better will be provided. A fresh perspective on enhancing the industry’s external image will be discussed so that we may better attract and retain the kind of talent that can effectuate our short and long term business objectives, as well as delight the communities we so proudly serve.
