Registration for CorrExpo 2023 is now open.

As Chairman and CEO of the $3 billion global capital equipment firm Barry-Wehmiller, Chapman has championed meaningful work, and caring work environments, through what he calls “Truly Human Leadership.” In his keynote on Tuesday, August 29, at 9:15 am, Chapman will challenge attendees’ traditional thinking about how to run a business and how to be caring and effective leaders. He’ll offer simple, yet groundbreaking ideas on how to create safe, healthy and fulfilling work environments grounded in people-centric leadership. Attendees will leave inspired and equipped to implement some of these concepts immediately with the end goal of building better organizations for tomorrow.

Drummer for some of rock’s great artists, including P!nk, Foreigner, Billy Idol and Cher, Schulman’s presentations have the excitement of a live concert combined with the transformational results of a cutting-edge keynote. Think Tony Robbins meets Bono meets Ringo Starr. On Wednesday, August 30 at 11:00 am, he will incorporate his own powerful business philosophy and innovative strategy into an engaging multimedia and live drumming performance designed to empower, inspire and elevate audiences to a new mindset and level of performance.  Don’t miss this ‘rock show disguised as a keynote!’
