Intercontinental Miami

InterContinental Miami

At the InterContinental Miami, vibrant art, innovative businesses, and tropical life converge into the premier luxury experience. Built around Henry Moore’s famous sculpture, “The Spindle,” the luxury Miami hotel lies along the downtown waterfront, with the city’s business centers and famous beaches both within easy reach.

In 1982, the InterContinental Miami was built in an untraditional way. Instead of building the hotel, then decorating it, they started with an art sculpture. Henry Moore’s 18-foot, 70-ton Spindle sculpture, made of travertine marble, was the focal point that the lobby was created around. Pietro Belluschi, the world-famous architect who designed the 34-story hotel created the Grand Lobby to be an elegant entrance, with its Italian marble slabs and precious African wood complementing The Spindle.


2019 Charity: Operation Sacred Trust – Disrupting Veteran Homelessness in South Florida

Charity Counter

Join MPIF at the PM Management Summit as we compile care packages that will be distributed to the men and women who have bravely served our country and are now in need of our help.

Your contributions will go towards purchasing the products to fill the care packages that will be assembled on-site at the conference. Not only will your donations help us fill the bags with all of the necessities, it will allow us to create even more care packages so that we can help hundreds of homeless veterans.

Each care package averages $8.00. Our goal is to collect $8,000 so that we can prepare and fill 1,000 care packages to Operation Sacred Trust. Your donation does matter and we look forward to your contribution. 

To make your donation, please contact Diane Haggerty, CMP at dhaggerty@mpif.org or by calling 609-452-7700 x103.

Please note: MPIF is not a charity and the donations are not considered charitable deductions.

  • Ensuring the experiences of senior leaders don't leave when they do

Future 4.0...Capitalizing on a Decade of Uncertainty and Disruption
Tom Morrison
Chief Energy Officer, Tom Morrison & Associates

With disruption driving change at light speed, two things are certain with "change": you no longer have the luxury of time and it is unforgiving. In a study by IBM, over 5,000 C-Suite executives stated that their #1 fear for the future was the "DISRUPTION" of their industry or business model. Forbes predicts that market disruption will drive 40% of Fortune 500 companies out of business by 2029. Any industry ignoring the wave of change headed our way will risk becoming irrelevant and eliminated. Enter FUTURE 4.0. In this very insightful and energetic session, Tom will unpack the key elements of FUTURE 4.0 including:

  • 3 dynamic forces driving change at hyperspeed... It will only get faster
  • 2020's economic boom... are they ready
  • The 8 year labor shortage... where are the workers?
  • 4 technologies that will change everything
  • Why and where disruption takes place
  • How the Internet of Things and Industry 4.0 are the solutions to the future

It’s Business, Not Social │ LinkedIn for Branding, Recruiting, Marketing and Sales
Colleen McKenna
Principal, Intero Advisory

LinkedIn is a business tool, not social media. During our session, Colleen demonstrates how CEOs, business owners, and their teams can leverage LinkedIn for brand awareness, business development and recruiting. In this session, framed around LinkedIn's Social Selling Index: develop your professional brand, find the right people, engage with insights and build relationships shows the importance of using LinkedIn strategically and consistently.

Colleen, an early LinkedIn adopter, shows you how to analyze your network, increase your personal rankings, develop a highly-engaged online community and create new business opportunities regardless of geography. From strategy to implementation, this presentation provides insight on how LinkedIn can help companies increase their digital presence and drive business and recruiting opportunities.


Workplace Violence Prevention, Executive Security and Preparation
Sam Rosenberg
Founder/CEO, Inpax

“Violence is never random, and you are never helpless.”

This is a presentation about dangerous personalities. In particular, those who might commit mass homicide.

The idea that an otherwise normal person could just “snap” one day and go on a killing spree and that such events are “random” – and hence impossible to anticipate – are fictions that lie at the core of a denial mechanism that, ironically, helps enable the very events we seek to forestall.

Violence, rather, is a process often as predictable and observable as boiling water, if you know what to look for. This course teaches you how to spot the “pre-incident indicators,” or PINS, that someone inside your organization may be dangerous and heading down a dark path.

Everyone says “if you see something, say something” - This course teaches you specifically what to look for, and how to prepare and equip your organization to prevent violence.


Leading in a VUCA World
Dr. Andy Neillie, CSP
Neillie Leadership Group

“Volatility. Uncertainty. Complexity. Ambiguity. As we move into the third decade of the new millennium, it’s a VUCA world out there. How do our organizations thrive in such an environment? How do we hire, train and retain top talent? How do we survive competitive threats and pricing challenges? It takes leaders. Leaders who lead with power and humility. In this brief presentation, Dr. Neillie overviews the challenges of leading in a VUCA world, and introduces the four leadership necessities for leading in a VUCA world.”
