The 5 Second Rule: Achieve Breakthrough Performance in Your Career & Life

Imagine if you had a secret weapon that helped you beat procrastination and self-doubt. What if you had the confidence and courage to take action and share your ideas with conviction? You’d be unstoppable.

In her globally praised TEDx talk, best-selling author, entrepreneur and social media influencer, Mel Robbins introduced the world to the science-backed secret to change– The 5 Second Rule. Over 13 million views later, The 5 Second Rule has become an international best-selling book translated into 29 languages, the #1 Audiobook in the world and a life-changing global movement inspiring people to quit procrastinating, become more courageous, accomplish goals, and change for the better.

Mel has used The 5 Second Rule to transform her own life. Since discovering and implementing The 5 Second Rule, Mel has become the most booked female speaker in the world, an award-winning legal analyst for CNN, an internationally acclaimed bestselling author, and the CEO of a media company that inspires more than 20 million people each month.

With riveting videos, case studies, compelling research, and hilarious personal stories, Mel will recount the deeply relatable and remarkable story of The 5 Second Rule and the power of five second decisions. She will demonstrate how this rule has helped people, teams, and businesses around the world change for the better. And, through audience interaction, she’ll show you how to use the Rule so you can also achieve your goals.

This is a life-altering speech filled with groundbreaking insights and a tool for action that is critical for selling, leadership development, innovation, and success. Mel will present the secret to HOW we change behavior, HOW to take smart risks, HOW you bring out the best in your team, and HOW to create the results that we covet at work and in life.

You’ll walk out of this experience with tools you can bring to back to your team, your family, and your life–and you’ll leave feeling inspired, empowered, and able to take action.

Tuesday Closing Pep Rally (ACTIVATION): WEC19 Preview Luncheon (doors open at 11:45, pre-show with Dena Blizzard starting at 12:05)

Indiana Convention Center - Exhibit Hall D-E

You’ve sharpened your skills, expanded your business network and gained new insights and perspectives on how to stop planning meetings and start creating experiences.

At our concluding lunch, MPI leadership will share its vision on where we’re going and how that will help you next year and in years to come. 

Then, the Toronto team will take you under their wings during our WEC 2019 Preview Lunch. Join us as Tourism Toronto gives you a glimpse of what you'll experience at the World Education Congress next year and presents Social profit entrepreneur, Farah Mohamed, CEO of the Malala Fund and founder of G(irls)20 as she grabs hold of a challenging current issue and ensure action for results towards a better world. Farah is a compelling storyteller who shares powerful stories of humanity and change from around the world.

Diversity and Opportunity
Farah notes that in an increasingly globalized, interconnected world, it’s a competitive edge for any organization or country to have a variety of opinions around the table. If you are not firing on all cylinders with your human resources, you will not grow, you cannot sustain, you cannot compete. If the people involved are all from similar backgrounds, you can’t understand what’s really going on outside the room. We do a good job of celebrating diversity; now we have to figure out how to leverage it. She recommends having more diversity – of ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation, people with disabilities – in governments, and changing the curriculum in schools.  She also notes that 1 billion women will enter the workforce over the next decade. World Bank stats show that women put 90 per cent of their earnings into their family or community. Farah encourages companies to find out how to engage these women. And, if a woman is part of the labour force, your GDP will increase. For organizations, your percentage, your growth, your profit margin will go up if a woman is sitting at a table making a decision. A diverse organization ensures you’re thinking about things differently and pursuing opportunities in your own way.
