This interactive session is effectively designed to highlight best practices to create, maintain or revolutionize a company's culture in all areas of the business.
Guest Speaker: Jim Knight, of KnightSpeaker, will use the visceral backdrop of Hard Rock International and his 21-year run with that brand as a platform to discuss key strategies to transform any organization's culture, regardless of the current state of the state.
The time allotted is chock-a-block full of visual PowerPoint slides, out-of-the-box thinking, book quotes, videos, personal stories, industry statistics and an interactive handout for some real "take-aways," all told through the spirit of Rock 'n' Roll:
If you're a fan of unpredictability & thinking about things differently, come hear what all the noise is about.
