KEYNOTE SPEAKER HIGHLIGHT
CRO, Medicus IT
"The Intentional Leader: How Inner Authority Can Unleash Strong Leadership"
Medicus IT’s Chief Revenue Officer, Tim Hebert, is a perennial entrepreneur, executive, community leader, innovator, and adventurer and sees the opportunity to effect change everywhere and is passionate about helping others do the same. A voracious author and seasoned speaker, he enjoys exploring concepts related to intentional leadership, business transformation, and professional and personal introspection. A business owner for well over three decades — and the CRO at Medicus and current CEO of Dirigo, a leadership consulting firm — he believes effective leaders need to embrace the climb.
As CEO of Atrion — a leading IT services firm that grew to a $170-million, 260-employee company before he sold it — Tim created and ran an organization centered on a strong and healthy culture, empowered employees, and shared vision. Under Tim's tenure, Atrion became an employer of choice and was named one of Rhode Island's "Best Places to Work" companies for seven straight years. Atrion was also recognized on the Inc. 5000 List of fastest-growing private companies for eight years in a row and CRN's 2016 Fast Growth 150 List.
He is a sought-after national public speaker on intentional leadership, culture, transformation, and change. He has published over 150 articles and blogs, and Tim's first book, "The Intentional Leader," was published in 2021. Tim has also taken significant leadership roles as a mentor through Rhode Island's Academy of Career Exploration, a Trustee for the Rhode Island Public Expenditure Council, a Director of the Rhode Island Commerce Corporation, and a board member for several non-profits, including Boy Scouts of America-Narragansett Council, Tech Collective, Eye-2-Eye, and Ocean State Pops Orchestra. Tim has served his country as a United States Air Force member.
When Tim's not busy writing, speaking, running companies, and growing organizations, you'll find him seeking out his next big climb, hopping on a plane to explore someplace new, and making sure his office mini-fridge of Diet Coke is always stocked.
