Using Stories to Ignite and Inspire High Performance Culture

Daniel Jacobs headshot

Daniel Jacobs

Founder and CEO

Avanoo

In the past 15 years, 52% of Fortune 500 companies have disappeared. As executive teams have become aware that no business is insulated from increasingly competitive global markets, they’ve realized that their one lasting competitive advantage is culture. Simultaneously, employees have noticed that their companies need them more than they need their companies, and they have new demands. If these demands aren’t met, they will leave — or never come onboard at all. Companies must invest in culture to drive next-level performance from their best employees.

In this talk Daniel Jacobs will cover:

  • Why culture will drive more value than sales for businesses of the future
  • Why extraordinary culture is the only lasting competitive advantage
  • How to scale a great culture that supports desired results for companies and employees
