    KnightJ.jpg"Culture That Rocks: How To Amp Up Or Revolutionize A Company's Culture"
    Jim Knight

    Jim's most-requested presentation uses the visceral backdrop of several well-known brands, including Hard Rock International, as a platform to discuss key strategies to transform any organization’s culture. In his signature Rock ‘n Roll style, Jim delivers insight on every element of organizational culture, including: a Clear-Cut Definition Of Culture (finally!), Heritage Vs. Culture, Brand Ambassadors, Employee Engagement, and How To Hire (and retain) Leadership Rock Stars. If you’re open to disruptive change within your organization, don’t miss the opportunity to hear what all the noise is about.
