Bonus Sunday Keynote: Culture Eats Strategy For Lunch

Sunday, September 17, 5:00 PM-6:00PM | Location Salon E | Sponsored by TBA

Through over thirty years of research and studying the best organizations across the globe, Mr. Coffman will provide insight on the three critical levels of great cultures - the MicroCulture, MacroCulture and BridgeCulture. Each plays a unique role in driving a high-performing and energized organization. Learn some of the key characteristics shared by great cultures: getting specific about the practices, rituals and quirks that distinguish your culture; designing sticky values that drive everything you do; moving decisions as close to the action as possible, and defining your "religion" and your "science" and the relationship between the two.

Tuesday Afternoon Keynote: Everything Must Change. Including You!

Tuesday, September 19, 11:00 AM-12:00 PM | Location Salon E | Sponsored by Cornerstone OnDemand

Sharing a big idea and explaining how it changes attitudes, lives and ultimately the communities in which we live in a short, powerful talk may be the hardest thing you’ll ever do.  But it can also be an AMAZING experience for both the speaker and the audience.

We are taking a chance and introducing our new conference concept:  short, powerful talks that introduce an idea, followed by discussion.  This focused approach demands engagement by both the speaker and the audience.

In this session, Ms. Musser will share her experience in delivering her TED talk and the process she went through as she prepared for the biggest speaking engagement of her life!  Excellence is our mission, people are her passion - you’ll be inspired!


Closing Keynote: Making a Difference (even when no one notices)

Wednesday, September 20, 11:00 AM-12:00 PM | Location Salon E | Sponsored by TBD

It is easy for HR professionals and team members to lose sight of the role they play in front line service delivery because we work behind the scenes.  But the reality is that excellent HR systems and support directly and profoundly impact whether citizen services are delivered with excellence, even though the role HR plays is often taken for granted.  This dynamic session will focus on the role HR plays in the noble calling of public service, even when you are taken for granted, and will help you inspire your team to continue delivering on a mission of excellence even when no one notices.
