SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- February 25, 2013

Hundreds of business leaders and teams from around the world today gathered
for the sixth Gap International Leveraging Genius Conference, an intensive
week-long experience which enables leaders to consistently produce
extraordinary results by discovering and leveraging their “genius.”

“We contend, and have witnessed in more than 30 years of working with
breakthrough organizations, that genius exists in everyone,” said Pontish
Yeramyan, Founder and CEO of management consulting firm Gap International.
“While many people only associate this term with historical visionaries, we
believe that genius is present in our thinking during those moments when we
are each at our best.”

Conference discussions and work sessions will be facilitated through a
highly-personalized experience with Gap International consultants. They will
help train attendees to gain deep insight into their unique genius and to
access the precise state of mind that has preceded their greatest

Through this process, executives and teams will be able to improve both
individual and group performance in real-time. Leaders will tune into subtle
but crucial clues that can predict the likelihood that targeted business
results will be achieved. “We have seen time and time again that the
heightened clarity that comes from this process translates into a tangible,
ongoing competitive edge,” noted Yeramyan.

Specific topics to be addressed during the Leveraging Genius Conference

  *Distinguishing “genius” as defined by Gap International from other
    concepts such as talent, skill or experience
  *Creating the environment for a successful exchange of genius between
    individuals and among teams
  *Enhancing assets and decreasing liabilities of business performance
  *Taking elements of individual and team genius and applying them to
    tangible business challenges

Attendees will also hear from guest presenter and noted Arizona-based chef
Chris Bianco – whose creative and entrepreneurial genius has provided the
catalyst to a successful restaurant empire. Bianco’s food has been rated “Best
pizza in the U.S.” by Bon Appétit magazine, and he has received accolades from
the James Beard Foundation, Zagat, “Oprah,” and top outlets including, Every
Day With Rachael Ray, Martha Stewart Living, GQ and Gourmet.

One of the most powerful elements of the Leveraging Genius conference is the
diverse international group of individuals and teams from many business
sectors who will be in attendance to collaborate and learn together. This
includes past representation from companies such as Cisco Systems, Owens
Corning, Panera Bread, PNC Bank, Diageo and more.
