Wait! Before you fill out your tax returns, there are some things you need to know. The Tax Cuts and Jobs Act (TCJA) passed in December 2017 is considered the most sweeping tax legislation since the Tax Reform Act of 1986.

Although the TCJA offers significant tax benefits it also eliminates or limits many tax breaks, and much of the tax relief is only temporary.

You will learn about:
-Qualified Business Deduction for pass-through entities and sole proprietors and the new corporate tax rate

Always listening to your employees often results in people feeling ignored. Here, we’ll explore the definition of continuous listening strategy, how it’s enabled by technology and in-person feedback, how companies have found success with frequent feedback and how you can get started.

With devices constantly pinging and stealing our attention and flow, and ever increasing demands on our time from all quarters, it can feel hard at times to stay calm, keep your energy up and maximise the use of your time to get everything you want done.
So often when you ask friends and colleagues how they are, they they snap back that they are 'tired', 'stressed', 'got far too much on to fit into the day' or even 'can't stop to chat, must keep going' usually with a big sigh and a look of slight panic or despair on their face. Instead of being one of those people, wouldn't it be amazing to feel energised, to feel calm and to know how to stay productive so that you feel in control of your professional and personal life?
Take an hour out and reflect on
- What eats away at and what creates energy, so that you can feel full of bounce when it matters most to you.
- Ways to stay calm no matter what, and how to understand triggers and behaviours that destroy your calm.
- Productivity hacks, including examining whether it really is possible to multitask or whether it's all just a myth.

Let’s face it… selling isn't easy. Sometimes it seems easier to lure a ravenous lion with a lettuce leaf than hit your monthly sales target. Even the best, most seasoned salespeople will feel pressurized from time to time and result in them not hitting the target. It’s this pressure that spawns excuses – excuses that detract attention away from a salesperson’s performance (or lack of it).
I hate hearing excuses; it feels like people are trying to blame others rather than accepting their own failings. But what are the top excuses you’ll hear from a salesperson?

In this webinar, you will learn 6 stages of the marathon of life, the ups and downs and how they relate to life and building a business.
Life is a roller coaster and we can't control the things that happen to us, but we are in control of the how we RESPOND. The word "responsibility" means our ability to respond to life.
"Marathon of life" and keeping ONE foot in front of the other (repeat theme)
What you BELIEVE SHAPES everything about your LIFE.
With our business- I believe that it ISN’T OUR circumstances that make us UNHAPPY (we all go through hard things).
It’s our ATTITUDE in our circumstances that really make us unhappy. Attitude is a LITTLE THING- that makes a BIG difference.
"You are in charge of your own race"
MILE 1- Expectations (they lead to disappointments- When CHANGING YOUR CIRCUMSTANCES isn’t possible - Change your PERCEPTION/BELIEF about your circumstances. )
MILE 5- Embrace your blisters (Shift from MOTIVATION to DEDICATION- an attitude of whatever it takes)
MILE 10- Let it go. (Get rid of ANYTHING that will HOLD YOU BACK. What you resist, persists.)
MILE 16- Conquer your heartbreak hill (we all hit a wall- it's not here to stop you, but PUSH you further than you would naturally push yourself- this is where you build strength)
MILE 20- No me without YOU (surrounding yourself with the right people - they will make you bitter or better, chose wisely)
MILE 26 - (finish line) - never really a finish line- it's about finding the JOY in the journey
WHEN YOU CONNECT the dots looking back at the marathon- everything was here to help you grow- same goes for life.

Innovation has quickly become an overused and distorted word. At Money20/20 Europe expect to cut through the hype, explore what measurements we can use to benchmark innovation and get to the heart of sustainable and commercial step change. A key question which has moved back up the C-Level agenda of established; banks, tech companies and payments companies is:
"How can incumbents deliver meaningful game-changing innovation?"
There are three options available for incumbents, and at Money20/20 Europe we’ll be developing deeper into each one:
1. Can organisations transform their cultures to execute true innovation internally within their organisations? (cultural transformation)
2. Perhaps tech transformation is the way forward, partnering or acquisitions to do so?
3. Or do they need to achieve business model transformation by building something entirely new outside of the organisation?
These options are being heavily debated in boardrooms throughout Europe, with a number of high profile banks recently announcing plans to build brand new subsidiaries. Some of the traditional banks, payments and tech companies are pursuing a few or all of the options while others are sitting on the fence. Which is most effective and why? What are the dynamics at play that determine success for different types of companies? Hear from the leading companies in our industry as they share their incisive insight on the successes but also the failures and the lessons learned.

Mastermind, or peer-to-peer advisory, groups are found in all aspects of development today. Some team members participate outside our organizations but bringing them into the organization helps maintain control and achieve the development, engagement and succession planning goals for your team. Internal talent development professionals are utilizing this format in house as an effective new avenue for learning and development activities. Well formatted and facilitated mastermind groups can build skills and camaraderie within teams, increasing employee engagement. At the same time, they will provide access to resources that might otherwise be unavailable to employees not in current leadership positions. But how do you get started?
Using proven techniques, participants will learn about the basics of the groups, how to get started, facilitation techniques and other process that help you get started. We will look at technology as a way to deploy the programs throughout the organization that makes facilitation easy.

·Determination for membership
·Process and procedures for running groups
