Mark ScharenbroichVGM & Associates is pleased to announce Mark Scharenbroich, CSP, CPAE, as the keynote speaker for its 20th Heartland Conference scheduled for Sept. 13-15, 2021, in Waterloo, Iowa.

“Mark is phenomenal at creating those authentic connections our members want with their customers and coworkers,” said Sarah Conger, vice president corporate projects at VGM Group, Inc. “His messages are a great fit for our event, as connection is at the core of everything we do at Heartland.”

Best known for his “Nice Bike” story, Mark helps listeners learn about the power of connectivity by taking them on an emotional rollercoaster. His high-impact stories have been described as leaving the audience, “laughing hysterically one moment and touched by tears the next.” However, while his stories and comedic timing are certainly entertaining, his presentations help his listeners form authentic connections that drive loyalty and collaboration, leading to outstanding results.

“Mark has a unique ability to deliver messages and actionable strategy in a way that’s memorable,” Conger continued. “We’re happy to have him, and we’re looking forward to our members hearing him speak.”

As well as being a National Speakers Association’s Hall of Fame inductee, Mark is also an Emmy award winner and an award-winning author for his book, Nice Bike: Making Meaningful Connections on the Road of Life. Learn more about Mark on his website, nicebike.com
