Culture Kitchen Confidential: Secret Recipes for Building a Great Brand

In this dynamic keynote speech, I show you how to create a workplace that is fun, fresh, innovative and profitable that will have your employees fired-up to go to work, the competition clamoring to steal your secret sauce and your customers coming back for more.

Your company culture is the heart of your business. Yet culture has been reduced to a stale mission statement buried deep inside your employee handbook.

The truth is, your company’s culture is the ecosystem that drives profits, results and customer loyalty. It’s what makes your business thrive.

Today’s leaders are called to curate and cultivate the kind of workplace where people come first. 

I toss conventional wisdom aside with new research and case studies from globally-recognized brands to modest mom-and-pops that sets the stage for why culture is the most important ingredient of your business.

This keynote gives fun, practical recipes to help you unleash the power of your teams, smash through the status quo, and create an unforgettable brand.
