4-5 PM The MindSide of Championship Excellence: Breaking the FishBowl
In this presentation, Bhrett McCabe, PhD, a leading clinical and sports performance psychologist, will layout the plan that top programs and athletes across the country rely upon to reach their own level of excellence. In today's sports and corporate world, the smallest of margins separate those who succeed from those who fail, but those minor differences are often significant ones on the mental side of the game. It is not just how you think, but what influences how you think, what influences your perception, and how each contributes to developing greatness.
Dr. McCabe is the owner of The MindSide, LLC, in Birmingham, AL, and through The MindSide, consults with numerous collegiate and professional organizations for establishing empirically sound psychological performance programs. He is the consulting sports psychologist for The University of Alabama Athletic Department, working across all sports in the department. He also works with numerous PGA, LPGA, and developmental tour golfers, as well as coaches and instructors.
Dr. McCabe is an oft-requested presenter for keynote presentations, teaching summits, and organizational leadership conferences. His presentations have a common theme - informational inspiration. Blending the scientific background with the sound principles of the applied landscape, Dr. McCabe challenges each attendee to evaluate their current way of living and learn to challenge the status quo, what he calls "Breaking the FishBowl," through their thinking, their behavior, and their vision.

12:15 PM Chris will present "mortgage intelligence" coming up where there will be lots of activity and development this year. This is the concept that with digital data, we have the ability to create a more intelligent process that can predict follow-ups and additional data that will be needed, and bring these tasks up earlier in the process. This saves time/resources/money and creates a better process for lender and borrower. Brian will cover anything in the e-market of e-closings, e-recording and e-notary.
