IMBC names Manley Feinberg keynote speaker

Publish date:

Manley Feinberg will deliver the keynote address at the International Marina and Boatyard Conference, scheduled for Jan. 14-16 at Broward County Convention Center in Fort Lauderdale, Fla.

His presentation, “Reaching your next summit: Seven vertical lessons and one essential question for leading with impact,” will be held Jan. 15 at 8:30 a.m.

During Feinberg’s 11 years with Build-A-Bear Workshop, he helped take the brand from 40 stores to more than 400 stores worldwide, and grew revenue from $55 million to $474 million. He also successfully realized an IPO on the New York Stock Exchange.

“It is human nature to put those things most challenging on the back burner, and the longer we do, the bigger the challenge becomes,” Joe Riley, Association of Marina Industries chair, said in a statement. “Manley will provide us with strategies for overcoming the mindset that keeps us from jumping right in, and help us to comfortably get out of our comfort zone.”

Following his address, Feinberg will deliver a 60-minute breakout session, “Incredible partners only: Hiring and mentoring the next generation's leaders.”
