Opening Session: High Energy from Start to Finish
Monday, April 19, 5:30 - 6:30 pm, Show begins promptly at 5:30 pm
Join us for a memorable kick-off to our three-day learning event. This year, ISPI is proud to welcome The Drum Café. The Drum Café concept is a unique hands-on application of African drums and percussion that not only builds a team, but energizes, motivates, and entertains them! It's a program that is experienced and felt. A musical background is not required as the transformation that occurs between the music as being "wrong" and the music as being "right" is easily understood by everyone despite their musical sensibilities. And because music is a universal language, it transcends those barriers, traditional or otherwise, that tend to come between us professionally as well as personally. The drummers are integrated in a way that brings ISPI's welcome and recognition to life. A reception immediately follows this program.
Monday, April 19, 6:30 - 7:30 pm

Teams of graduate students from Boise State University, San Diego State University, University of West Florida, Capella University, and San Francisco State University in human performance technology (HPT) and instructional systems technology (IST) are competing in a competition that provides a connection between ISPI and future practitioners as well as offers valuable real-world experience for students studying HPT and IST. The competition, which began in January, culminates at the conference, where the top three teams will showcase their findings and presentations.

In addition to our traditional 150+ opportunities to meet, talk to, and learn from global performance improvement colleagues, you will have three additional, 90-minute opportunities to do more talking, sharing, and learning World Café style! World Café conversations are powerful, intensive dialogues built on the assumption we already have the wisdom and creativity within us to confront our most difficult challenges. This year, Society and Chapter Leaders will convene a forum to access our deeper communal knowledge about what is important to improve human performance and how we can better share some of this knowledge with our partners and clients. Potential topics include:
- ISPI in 50 Years - The Dream
- Growing to 10,000 members
- Every member in a chapter, every chapter full of members
- Mainstreeting of Performance Improvement
- Think Mega: 6.9 billion people to improve; first steps might be...

- Using performance improvement to save the world
- Why, Why, Why are we members of ISPI? Who else should be?
- ISPI's Gifts - People, Partnerships, Processes
