The 12th Annual Global Networking Experience, more commonly known as GNEX Conference is setting its sights on record-breaking attendance at Encore at Wynn Las Vegas in February 2022 and has now secured Mike Flaskey, former CEO of Diamond Resorts, and Founder and CEO of Mike Flaskey Entertainment, Inc. as Keynote Speaker.
Under Mike’s leadership, Diamond Resorts achieved unprecedented growth both organically and through strategic acquisitions, culminating with the successful sale of the company to Hilton Grand Vacations in 2021.
GNEX 2022 attendees will be the first to hear the story of how Diamond Resorts was transformed from a non-branded timeshare company to a global hospitality organization that lead through experiences in this powerful and inspiring Keynote Session.
While at Diamond, Mike innovated and created strategic partnerships and relationships with numerous prominent sporting and entertainment professionals that have resulted in the creation and growth of Diamond’s Events of a Lifetime® experiential franchise, the Diamond Concert Series™ and the Diamond Resorts Tournament of Champions, a network- televised, best-in-class LPGA Tournament of Champions/ Celebrity golf tournament.
“I am very honored to have been chosen as the Keynote Speaker for the 2022 GNEX Conference, and I look forward to sharing the behind-the-scenes story of Diamond Resorts’ rise to success in the face of adversity at every turn. I’m also thrilled to convey both strategic and tactical applications that the leaders in attendance can take back and apply to their respective companies.” Says Mike Flaskey, Founder and CEO, Mike Flaskey Entertainment, Inc.
Attendees will hear how an unbranded timeshare company, in the face of continuous adversity, used data to innovate and execute in order to compete with the big brands, and ultimately be acquired by one of them.
“We are excited to have Mike Flaskey share his incredible journey at Diamond Resorts with our attendees, showing how powerful data analysis and curated customer experiences can transform any business looking to retain and grow their customer base. We know this will be a valuable and memorable Keynote that will help inspire the whole industry.” Says Paul Mattimoe, President & CEO, Perspective Group.
