Purpose-Driven Speaker Series Kicks Off in July

Saturday, June 18th, 2011

We’ve been working with OpenText on an exciting new speaker series focused on what it takes to become a Purpose-Driven organization. The speaking series will kick off in July with our first presentation by Simon Sinek, author of “Start with Why: How Great Leaders Inspire Everyone To Take Action.” He will be talking about the simple tools and strategies that organizations can use to define and talk about their unique purpose. Simon will be talking about how “starting with Why” has helped organizations around the world become more focused and successful.

Many of our speakers will also serve as judges for OpenText’s Prize for Organizational Purpose – an award of $10,000 will be made to the charity of the winner’s choice. Please share your stories with us about the role that purpose has played in your team or organization.
