Are you wondering how your organization can still maintain your values and demonstrate them even though the physical manifestations of your culture (office, environment) are gone?  Our January presenter, Rebecca Friese, will share insights and ideas on how to maintain, build, or change your culture within your organization - even with a distributed workforce. She is a maven, author, and executive coach who has made the Future of Work and change management her playing field for over twenty years. Rebecca has keynoted for SIM Women previously and we're excited to have her speak for us!

Her blend of strategy and tactical practical will benefit us all! 
 
The power of a "Good Culture" is something to behold, and the cost of not creating one may be more significant than you realize. Join us for an hour of interaction that will motivate and equip you to lead your own "Good Culture."
