How to Deliver World Class Healthcare to Your Employees at Half the Cost
Founder of M Powered Benefits, Health Rosetta Founding Advisor, Forbes 2016 “One of America’s Most Innovative Benefits Leaders,” and Founder & Former CEO, Lake Norman Benefits.
In our healthcare system, normal metrics that we apply when we buy a shirt, a vacuum, a car, or most anything else are simply ignored. Everyone – the providers of healthcare services, the insurance companies and TPAs, and the consumers of healthcare (all of us) – continue to ignore basic economic tenants. It’s time we call wake up. We have a major crisis in our country and employers, benefits consultants who advise employers, and mission-aligned industry partners are in a position to fix it. Join benefits expert Dave Contorno as he takes you through his own personal journey of change and offers solutions that have been proven across the US, solutions that bring superior quality care at half the cost.
Health as Human Capital: Aligning employee and business performance
Why are some companies so much more successful in promoting health than others? Why do the same programs succeed in some work settings and fail in others? Why are we not more successful in engaging workers in their own health management? Every business has finite resources to dedicate to labor costs, and every dollar spent on benefits is a dollar not spent on training, compensation, technology, and other productivity-enhancing investments. So is more better? And what is the optimal mix of rewards and health investments? The answer may surprise you.

The Healthcare Crisis and What Can Employers Do About It
The healthcare crisis is a tragic yet logical byproduct of a catastrophically dysfunctional healthcare system. Dave will detail how the healthcare system has been the catalyst for financial devastation of the American middle class – and what employers can do about it. Dave will also discuss Health Rosetta, a non-profit organization dedicated to the identification and adoption of simple, non-partisan fixes for our healthcare system. Health Rosetta acts as an open source blueprint for a next generation healthcare ecosystem. Its principles have been enthusiastically adopted by a cascade of employers and employee benefit consultants/advisors on behalf of their employer clients.
Lying To Myself: The Ryan Leaf Story
In this extremely personal and candid presentation, Ryan will share his story of addiction in a brutally honest format. His story starts with a four-minute video, showing highlights of his football career, his dream to be a professional athlete, his rise to stardom & virtual assurance of the fame and fortune that comes with being a premier NFL Quarterback, and how it all began to unravel as a result of physical, psychological and behavioral factors. From growing up in Great Falls, Montana and being a high school football star, to being a Division 1 Heisman Trophy contender, to the comparisons to Peyton Manning and being chosen 2nd overall in the 1998 NFL Draft….Ryan will take the audience on his journey from addiction to sobriety, and how he makes sense of it all today.

Rebuilding Hope, Health, & Well-being in Our Workplaces & Communities
The opioid crisis is a microcosm of the even larger health care crisis. Can it be the much-needed catalyst for communities to pull together across social and political boundaries to solve not just this problem, but the problem with healthcare in general?
This dynamic discussion will outline what can be done today by community leaders – whether they are mayors and other elected officials, union leaders, social service and faith-based organizations, or civic-minded business leaders – as we look upstream to avoid enabling more waves of addiction. Join this solutions-focused discussion as we bring a non-partisan look at how the opioid crisis fits into the broad-based negative impact that the status quo health care system has wrought on the American Dream.
