    Keynote: Drop The Mic: Engaging the Power of Purpose
    Presented by Brant Menswar, Keynote Speaker/Rock Star, Author of Rock ‘N’ Roll With It: Overcoming the Challenge of Change

    A recent article in the Harvard Business Review brings to light the power of finding “purpose” at work. When successful, employee performance and commitment can reach extraordinary levels; the employee life cycle is lengthened and the ROI for everyone is increased exponentially. Purpose is something we choose by identifying and living out our core values. When we can amplify our organizational core values, we provide a motivation that far surpasses traditional incentives and training.  In this highly engaging, Rock ‘N’ Roll fueled, interactive session, Brant explains the secrets and science of why engaging purpose has the most transformational impact on company culture.

    • Use organizational core values to connect the head and the heart.
