Appearing will be: Dr. Richard Deming, the medical director of MercyOne Cancer Center and author of Above and Beyond Cancer; Neil Hamilton, the former director of the Agricultural Law Center at Drake University, whose new book, The Land Remains, will be released this spring; and Jim Autry, the prolific author of 15 books whose work has had a significant influence on leadership thinking.
