Nice Bike – Making Meaningful Connections on the Road of Life


Thursday, Nov 7 | 10:00 AM – 11:30 AM

Mix thousands and thousands of black leather, bandana wearing, tattoo bearing Harley-Davidson riders with a 100th Anniversary and one beige rental car and the end result will be the perfect metaphor for connecting with others: “Nice Bike.”

Nice Bike acts as a powerful catalyst to help build stronger, more unified teams. The message inspires audience members to be more engaged and passionate about connecting with others.

Join Emmy award-winning speaker, Mark Scharenbroich as he takes you for a fun ride on how to be effective at making meaningful connections in both your professional and personal life. His Nice Bike principle is supported by three strong actions: Acknowledge, honor and connect.

Mark has spent his career working in both industry and education discovering how some of the best organizations and team leaders build a culture that encourages people to perform at a higher level through greater engagement.

Part motivational speaker, part thought-provoker and pure comedic entertainer – Mark Scharenbroich will inspire, teach and engage you with Nice Bike.



The National WWII Museum Tour

What better way to fully immerse yourself in leadership practices for the week than to tour a facility dedicated to our country's bravest leaders—our military forces!

Join fellow ELEVATE attendees for a tour of The National WWII Museum – the top-rated tourist destination in New Orleans. The National WWII Museum tells the story of the American experience in the war that changed the world—why it was fought, how it was won, and what it means today—so that all generations will understand the price of freedom and be inspired by what they learn.

Its expansive collections include more than 250,000 artifacts & over 9,000 personal accounts supporting major exhibits and research. Elevate attendees will have the opportunity to view a WWII film, Beyond All Boundaries, narrated and produced by Tom Hanks.
