Kenexa, a global provider of business solutions for human resources, today announced that internationally renowned speakers, Billy Beane, vice president and general manager of the Oakland Athletics baseball team, and Mike Abrashoff, former US Navy Commander and author of “It’s Your Ship,” will present inspirational, leadership-focused keynote presentations during Kenexa’s upcoming 2011 World Conference,“The Conference of Grown-Up Dreams.”

Considered one of the most progressive and talented baseball executives in the game today, Billy Beane has guided the Oakland Athletics into a perennial postseason contender since becoming the team’s general manager in 1997. Under Beane’s direction, the A’s ended a string of losing seasons, reaching the playoffs four times and winning the second most regular season games of any time in baseball. His management approach of identifying and using undervalued assets to create and sustain a competitive edge and the organisation’s philosophy are the subject of Michael Lewis’ best-selling book,“Moneyball: The Art of Winning an Unfair Game,” and a full-length feature film due to premier this autumn.

Former US Navy Commander and author of “It’s Your Ship” and “Get Your Ship Together,” Mike Abrashoff will explain how 'grassroots leadership' helped transform his former ship, the U.S.S. Benfold, to be the best ship in the Pacific Fleet. Overcoming challenges of exceptionally low morale and poor performance, Abrashoff replaced common command and control management methods with commitment and cohesion, engaging the hearts, minds and loyalties of the ship’s workers. Using personal interviews with all team members – regardless of station – Abrashoff generated invaluable ideas and inspired his crew, making each member feel invested and improving a ship that few thought could ever change.

“Kenexa is thrilled to have such pioneering leaders as Mike Abrashoff and Billy Beane joining us at the 2011 World Conference,” commented Rudy Karsan, Chairman and CEO of Kenexa. “Their keynote sessions will provoke conference attendees to dream big, even in the face of opposition and motivational challenges, and to encourage innovative leadership within their own organisations, ultimately creating a path for heightened levels of success.”

“The Conference of Grown-Up Dreams" will be held at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Fla. on 11 and 12 October 2011, and include a full agenda of breakout sessions led by industry experts, keynote presentations, entertainment and special events. Additional speakers are to be announced. Those interested are encouraged to register early as extended discount conference rates are available now until 15 June 2011.
