CEDIA has assembled an all -star line -up of keynote speakers and cross -industry presenters for the 2007 CEDIA Management Conference. The featured keynote speakers include former NBA team owner and bestselling author Pat Croce (I Feel Great and You Will Too!, 110%, and Lead or Get Off the Pot!); Warren Greshes (The Best Damn Sales Book Ever: 16 Rock Solid Rules for Achieving Sales Success!); and the host of the powerful PBS special "The Traveler's Gift" and bestselling author Andy Andrews (The Traveler's Gift - Seven Decisions that Determine Personal Success).

Cross -industry presenters for the 2007 CEDIA Management Conference include entrepreneur and author Jay Goltz (The Street -Smart Entrepreneur); construction industry financial and management consultant Leslie Shiner; and Alan Fine, personal coach to some of the world's top athletes and business leaders. These three highly successful individuals from parallel businesses will share outside perspectives on the residential electronic systems industry and offer innovative ideas for tackling common business challenges.

In addition, the "Strategic Management Forums" are another popular feature of CEDIA Management Conference, which offer CEDIA Certified Instructor insights and small -group discussions on diversification and market expansion, future strategic business planning, increasing capital, and branding and marketing. Because small and large companies may use different operating procedures, the "Strategic Management Forums" will be offered in both large - and small -business categories this year. This way, the ideas and materials developed in the forums will be more strategically aligned with the companies participating, and may be immediately implemented following the conference.
