Applying Purpose to Business Transformation

Davin SalvagnoKeynote Speaker & Author

There is power in purpose. To unleash its potential, we need to understand what purpose is and what it is not. This provocative session will examine those differences and how to connect individual and organizational purpose with impact.
Our speaker will guide us from the Experience Economy to the Purpose Economy by exploring:
  • The Great Resignation and how to turn it into the Great Restoration
  • Four Generations in the marketplace and what motivates them
  • The Talent Currency Shift from money to time
  • The shift from work-life balance to work-life integration
Accept the challenge to become a Difference Maker during this compelling period of business transformation.
