The first of the two keynote speeches will feature Jon Petz, a former corporate executive and top selling author who is also renowned as a motivational speaker and comedian at corporate events and conferences.

AP&P2P’s second keynote, “Time Management Strategies for AP and P2P Leaders,” will take place in the morning of Wednesday, May 20, and will feature Home Depot’s Senior Finance Manager, Debbie Rich-Walker.
