This December 9-10 Native Nation Events will hold its Seventh Native American Leadership Forum – West on the beautiful island of Oahu Hawaii at the Moana Surfrider, a Westin Resort & Spa. This is an extremely unique forum that combines some of the most advanced leadership training available with networking opportunities that will last a lifetime.

Tribal Leaders, Board Members, Tribal Enterprise Executives and Industry Executives will gather for two days and learn valuable leadership skills. This forum will be a hands-on interactive accelerator that will allow participants to practice leadership thought and action in real time. You will walk away with the ability to leverage new ways of thinking, speaking and acting, and discover how that can have an enormous impact on productivity, profitability and overall effectiveness.

Jim Stroker

“Jim Stoker had the most impactful session personally and professionally-thank you for bringing him and his message.”
-Stephanie Menei, HR Director, Yavapai Prescott


“Jim Stroker’s seminar was a great reminder of why I do what I do. He is very passionate about his subject matter and clearly wants to share that with his audience.”
– Denise Abrahamson, HR Director, Spokane Tribal Enterprises


“I’ve participated in team member rallies for over 20 years with my company, Caesars Entertainment. From time to time, we have guest speakers. Usually, we get a few comments from the team, such as, “nice speaker…thanks for having the speaker, etc.” But with Coach Jim Stroker, it was different. It has been over a week since we had Coach join us for our mid-year rally and I’m still getting favorable comments from the team. Coach spoke to the team about the 5 G’s …Gratitude, Good, Grit, Generosity, and Going for it. He has an amazing gift of storytelling in a way that connects the story to each member of his audience. His story becomes your story and your story his. The team left this rally inspired and ready to conquer the world, or at least our little slice of it. Thanks Coach!”
– Robert Livingston, Regional President and GM, Harrah’s Phoenix Ak-Chin Casino Resort

See what past attendees have to say about our Leadership Forums:

“The trainers were very knowledgeable and had a lot of real-life experience. It was a very personal experience getting to hear their life experiences. I was able to connect with tribal leaders and representatives from the other tribes. I was nervous attending as I didn’t know how formal of an event it was, but I felt very comfortable by the end of the first day. And the boat ride was a great experience to top everything off.”
-Patrick Lamoureux, Tribal Council Representative District 1, Ponca Tribe of Nebraska

“The speakers are amazing, especially Jim Stroker and his ability to motivate people and his enthusiasm are unmatched. It was really important for me to be able to network with people of similar background who are working in all different fields of work but many within native owned companies or corporations. Thank you for such an amazing opportunity.”
