Sep 9, 2015Leslie Stein to participate in 2015 BrandStorm event
The United Fresh Produce Association announced Leslie Stein, Innovation Motivator, as this year’s Emcee and Closing General Session speaker at the inaugural BrandStorm on Nov. 1-2 in San Francisco, California.
Leslie Stein has done just a little bit of everything with her career. She decided early on to take the road less traveled, which led her to The U.S. Military Academy at West Point after high school. She spent four years there pursuing a degree in Portuguese before being commissioned as a second lieutenant in the U.S. Army. She spent seven years as an Aviation officer flying CH-47D Chinook helicopters, including tours in Kosovo and South Korea.
As a motivator, Stein has gone by the title “trainer,” “inspirational speaker,” and “coach.” As CIO (Chief Inspiration Officer) of Full Circle Inspiration – her business, focuses on inspiring groups and individuals to look for new perspectives when the ones they are stuck in just aren't working – her passion is bringing innovation to teams in order to help them use their own brilliance to improve communication and enhance success. Some of the companies she has inspired include; Disney, Fidelity, Procter & Gamble, U.S. Food & Drug Administration, Globo.com, Diversity Inc., Landmark Graphics and BMC Software.
Stein will welcome attendees to the event on Sunday afternoon as the BrandStorm Emcee where she will be responsible for keeping the storm rolling all the way through Monday’s conclusion. She will inspire marketers to take the ideas and skills they’ve learned back to work where they will continue to brand-storm for their companies and our industry.
A project of the United Fresh Produce Marketing & Merchandising Council, BrandStorm has been developed to engage new and young marketers in the produce industry looking to learn about brand development, content creation, managing the creative process, segmented marketing channels, and much more.
