Keynote Speaker

Jeff Ponders

Jeff Ponders II, marketing executive, tech entrepreneur and jazz musician, will help kick off the Leadership Summit on November 10. He will inspire us to think beyond “how it's always been done” to achieve better performances.

Jeff will use a mix of real world stories, live music and techniques passed down from jazz masters to Leadership Summit attendees about collaborative creativity, organizational excellence and how PQA can work optimally as a member organization to efficiently deliver exceptional value to members and stakeholders. He has spent his career helping others unlock their best performance with creativity, innovation and infectious energy.
