With over fifteen years of clinical experience and extensive research in the science that lies behind motivation and mental wellness, Dr. Shimi Kang explained why “adaptation” is the key to success in the workplace and in our personal lives.
Peter Aceto stands for more than a leader of a bank: his goal is to change the conversation about leadership, and to inspire unconventional thinking and transparency that delivers unparalleled results for business and consumers. He did just that at our Showcase, explaining why the concept of “weology” is at the core of of his leadership philosophy.
What inspires companies, and what makes them inspiring? Dennis Moseley-Williams shared his creative—and hilarious–insights on how to develop experience-driven solutions that deliver results, increase revenues, and build enthusiastic referral-generating communities.
