    Topic: 

    Learn Communication Tactics from Air Traffic Control During 9/11

    Keynote Speaker


    Linda Schuessler

    Air Traffic Professional

    Ms. Schuessler is a seasoned Air Traffic professional who has achieved wide successes in her career in government service.  Her last position held in the FAA was the Vice-President of Systems Operations of the Air Traffic Organization responsible for the entire day-to-day operations of the National Airspace System.  

    Ms. Schuessler was working the morning of 9/11. You will not want to miss her riveting story of how that day unfolded and changed our lives forever. As a business owner you understand the need to communicate effectively. Ms. Schuessler exhibited calm and effectively communicated to the air traffic control towers to keep other possible disasters from occurring on that fateful day. 

    After September 11th she represented the FAA as a spokesperson for all operational security issues in the National Airspace System at the White House, Congress, Department of Transportation, Department of Defense, Department of Homeland Security, US Secret Service and the Central Intelligence Agency. 

    Spotlight Speaker


    Wendy Barlin, CPA

    After 25 years serving small business owners, CPA Wendy Barlin sold her firm and is now focusing on educating business owners on how to find more business tax deductions so that they can keep more of their hard-earned money. Rather than tuning to Google, Wendy wants business owners to have a safe and reliable place to go to get all their tax questions answered.
