MindSet Keynotes

Inspiration and Insights on Leadership, Culture, and Professional Development

Most of us have sat through Keynotes focused largely on the speaker, their accomplishments, and their business. At MindSet, we focus on attendees. Our goal is to engage the audience and provide them with information and insights that can propel them to greater success at work and in life.

We list a number of our favorite keynotes below, but with over 225 MindSets across 14 domains of content, we are able to tailor our keynotes for each audience and can address a wide range of topics related to leadership, culture, and building a dominantly successful business.

Prior to creating MindSet, he founded and grew a company into a national center of excellence, as well as 5-time #1 Best Place to Work in its region. If you want a dynamic business keynote about leadership and culture, look no further.

Dr. Hoogeveen’s refreshingly practical approach to leadership has made him a highly requested speaker.

Attendees leave his keynotes with greater clarity regarding how to better attract, build, motivate, and retain talent.

Culture : Why are we Making this so Hard?

Would anyone dispute that having a positive, energetic, prideful organizational culture is valuable? Does anyone dispute that culture is largely built (or destroyed) by leadership? Then let’s take a look at what some organizations are getting so wrong…and what others are getting so right!

Brett first gave this keynote at the Disrupt HR conference in Omaha.

Blake Hoogeveen

He helped launch a young professionals group inside that company, and helped Omaha build a young professionals ecosystem among over 100 companies, which has helped make Omaha a better place to live, work, and play for the coveted young professional talent base.

Enthusiasm for networking led to an opportunity for Blake to lead the fundraising efforts of one of Omaha’s more respected nonprofits. Blake helped raise millions for the organization and learned a ton from the incredibly accomplished and generous donors.

Blake is passionate about personal and professional growth, and he speaks on a variety of topics including leadership, culture, mentoring, networking, sales, and negotiation tactics.
