Please contact Brett Housholder at 307-234-3203 for more details.

This year's event features two nationally recognized speakers - Scott Friedman and Gloria Larkin. 

Scott Friedman - CCO (Chief Celebration Officer) at Friedman & Associates

Scott Friedman, CSP, nationally recognized employee engagement speaker and innovation expert presents: Celebrate! Lessons Learned from the World’s Most Admired Organizations. 

"Imagine a workplace where productivity is at an all-time high, where employees look forward to the work day, where people are matched to their strengths and are recognized accordingly, where you can “recalculate" mistakes and turn them into opportunities. This can be YOUR workplace, your people..."

Participants will come away with tools to enhance their work, their lives, and their future, helping them to start celebrating and live happily ever laughter.

Scott will be following up his keynote with a breakout session entitled: Employee Innovation for Turbulent Times. What does it take to stay relevant and competitive in today’s fast-paced, ever-changing global marketplace? A culture of innovation! In fact, the #1 killer of employee innovation is a culture that doesn’t support it. Employees are more mobile, versatile and appreciate their personal freedom more than any time in the history of work. The needs and demands of today’s workforce make the task of employee engagement more complicated.

Don’t miss this great opportunity to get two exciting presentations on improving your workplace in one event!
