    About the Speaker:

    Paul Artale is a work-life and motivational speaker based out of Swartz Creek, Michigan. 

    As a keynote presenter, he speaks for organizations that want to light a fire in people on how to perform at their peak and create a healthy balance between work and home. As a career coach, Paul works one on one with people who want to discover what makes them tick and live a life worth living. 
    In fact, he wrote the book, The Two-Year Old’s Guide to Work-Life Balance. Presentation attendees share that they are more focused on what matters, inspired to reach for more, and implement ideas that are practical and immediately accessible.

    On a personal note, Paul played defensive end for the University of Toronto and off the platform coaches include his wife Sherri, son Alessio, and daughter Sofia.

    October 25th 

    Featuring Rod Alberts 
    Executive Director of NAIAS
    (North American International Auto Show)

    Rod Alberts came to the Motor City 24 years ago where he was soon named executive director of the Detroit Auto Dealers Association (DADA) and the North American International Auto Show (NAIAS). As head of the DADA, Alberts represents more than 200 domestic and import new car and truck dealers in Southeast Michigan. He is the voice of dealer business interests at the state and federal levels, and he creates and oversees communications, community relations, and educational and charitable activities for the dealer group. Alberts serves another, equally important, role as executive director of the North American International Auto Show, one of the top five motor shows in the world.  He manages all aspects of the global show, including countless worldwide and North American vehicle introductions, more than 5,000 international media from over 60 countries and over three-quarters of a million visitors in overall attendance annually.  The show’s Charity Preview event is renowned as one of the largest fundraising events of its kind in the world, raising over $47 million in the last 10 years alone. Additionally, the auto show brings an estimated $350 million to the local economies of Southeast Michigan each year. A native of Missouri and a graduate of the University of Missouri, Alberts held previous leadership positions with auto dealer associations in Arkansas and California. Today, Alberts serves on a number of automotive and community boards and committees, and has been recognized by many local organizations for his service to the auto industry and his commitment to the community.
