Conferences with less synergy?

Please recommend conferences dealing with leadership, management, and the like that aren't buzzword-tastic snoozefests. If they exist.

The deal is that I'd definitely like to learn more about management (having been a manager for a year), improving communication skills, and leadership goodness. I've been to internal training sessions which have been invaluable thanks to practical examples and keeping light on fluff. We looked at case studies, blue ocean strategy, etc. and I liked this a lot.
I work for a medium-sized tech company, and deal primarily with the UI. I'd prefer for the conference to be in the midwest US but will look at others in the US.
For reference I've been to An Event Apart (very good, obviously more of a tech focus) and Webvisions (very good.)
Are there any such conferences? Any advice? Thanks.
