The Institute of Finance & Management (IOFM), a business unit within Diversified Business Communications, has announced that motivational speaker Andy Core, author of "Healthy Motivation," will deliver a keynote address at the 12th Annual Accounts Payable 2013 Conference & Expo®: Oct. 21-14, 2013, at Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas, NV. Drawing on the contents of his book, "Healthy Motivation," Core, named a “Top 5 Global Speaker 2012” by Speakers Platform, delivers keynotes nationwide that focus on remaining at once healthy and motivated.

"Andy has been a keynote speaker for us previously, and we are pleased to have him back at AP Expo," said RD Whitney, executive director of the IOFM. "His talks never fail to motivate, and accounts payable professionals always benefit from motivation. We strive, every year, to send attendees home with the will and drive to excel. AP Expo is designed to give attendees the knowledge they need to make accounts payable strategic."

Attendees who register by Friday, June 28, 2013, will save $200 on AP Expo 2013. Professional education opportunities there include the Form 1099 Certification Bootcamp and AP Certification Workshop. At AP Expo, attendees will be able to take the related certification exams, as well.

Winner of Arkansas’ "2005 Outstanding Individual Leadership in Fitness Award" and voted one of that state's top 40 business and political leaders under 40, Core is co-host of the PBS affiliate program "Fighting Fat" and a columnist for several niche publications that cover the connections between health and motivation. Others presenting at AP Expo 2013 will be accounts payable speakers representing well-known companies and institutions, such as Carnegie Mellon, The Home Depot, University of Pennsylvania, MGM Resorts, Ann Taylor Companies, ING, and others.

A robust accounts payable agenda drives AP Expo 2013, the only AP membership meeting strictly focused on accounts payable education and practical approaches to automation, leadership and process improvements.
