US – GLI announces Lt. Colonel Kevin Sweeney as Keynote Speaker at Regulators RoundtableBy Phil - 18 February 2016
Gaming Laboratories International will welcome Lt. Colonel Kevin Sweeney on March 3 as the keynote speaker at the company’s 2016 North American Regulators Roundtable.
The 16th annual event takes place March 2 and 3 at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, and Sweeney will inspire attendees with his motivational address, “Pressure Cooker Confidence: How to Lead When the Heat Is On.”
GLI’s President & CEO James Maida said: “We are thrilled to welcome Lt. Colonel Sweeney as the keynote speaker for our 16th annual Regulators Roundtable. The theme of this year’s event is ‘strategically embracing innovation,’ and Lt. Colonel Sweeney is the perfect speaker to motivate attendees with his stirring stories while inspiring the crowd to value the importance of strategy and face new challenges head on.”
Sweeney’s presentation, “Pressure Cooker Confidence,” enables you to say “I can, I will, I expect, and I did it” when faced with intense pressure. The Lt. Colonel’s flagship presentation is built around his dramatic life or death flight during a night combat mission in Desert Storm. Sweeney will position you mentally in the cockpit with him to personally live through his incredible experience and challenge of having the two engines on his left wing detach from his airplane. As he introduces the five principles of performance under pressure, you will discover why the hard work you do beforehand matters more than the work you do when the pressure is on.
Sweeney’s keynote address is just one of the Regulators Roundtable’s exciting presentations. The agenda also includes the following key topics: Risks associated with replacing core gaming systems, Security breach mitigation, Cheating & fraud, Millennials and game mechanics and Fantasy sports.
“Technologies are changing rapidly, and regulators need to continually embrace innovation in order for their jurisdictions to remain competitive. This year’s Regulators Roundtable is created to help regulators begin to develop innovation strategies and prepare for the exciting new world of gaming that is at our doorstep,” Mr. Maida said.
