8:30 a.m.     Keynote: Culture Grows* 

Culture isn’t built, it’s grown. It’s a living presence that requires constant attention and intentionality. Like it or not, every organization has a culture. If you’re not intentional about your company’s culture, it still grows, but what grows is not what you want. Join Bill Nye, The Apartment Guy, for this dynamic session where we will discuss the steps required to grow a culture that leads to a strong reputation, great employee engagement, and a solid financial foundation for your organization. We’ll explore practical steps and innovative strategies to nurture a culture that aligns with your vision and values, propelling your organization towards its highest potential.

Speaker: Bill Nye, The Apartment Guy
