The Ultimate Culture Conference will inform and empower you to initiate change and improve organizational performance.

After three inspiring Annual Ultimate Culture Conferences, we are bringing the Ultimate Culture experience to regions throughout the US in partnership with major universities. Our goal is to build relationships with culture champions to positively impact organizations and their local communities. You’ll participate in thought-provoking presentations, interactive sessions, and dynamic networking to learn more about culture, plus:

  • Experience an interactive, small-group learning approach designed to help leaders and other change agents understand and act on the complexities of culture, leadership, and their connection to performance with our Culture Journey Learning Experience.
  • Learn from local leaders and consultants who are collaborating with leadership teams to change the cultures of their organizations, including Marti Wronski of the Milwaukee Brewers and Angie Zeigler of the Oshkosh Corporation.
  • Connect with presenters and peers at a happy hour event with refreshments and interactive networking opportunities.
