Under the Hood:

How to Fire Up Your Employee Culture for Maximum Performance 
Based on thought leader Stan Slap's much anticipated second book, Stan delivers a story filled, high content presentation on how employee cultures work and how to work it. If your job success involves achieving results through others and those others work for you -understanding the true motivation of an employee culture is the most important information that you can have. This session will change how the culture accepts and promotes the strategies upon which the success of the enterprise rests. 

Bury My Heart at Conference Room B

Your managers' emotional commitment is worth more than their financial, intellectual and physical commitment combined. Slap shows you how making a personal investment to promote and protect your company can create a culture where managers can thrive as leaders and achieve extraordinary success. 

Tough Times, Tougher Teams

"Whining" is not a strategy and "Victim" is not a job description. Successful companies take the same accountability for their mistakes as for their successes. In this blistering, funny and empowering speech, Slap debunks the most common excuses for poor performance and provides the foundation for creating a solution mentality throughout any company, in good times and bad. 

The Hungry and the Hunted

Becoming a brand is the ultimate achievement for any company because you transfer sustainability to your customers, who advertise and sell for you, and protect you if necessary. To become a brand you need to secure the deepest trust of both your employee and internal cultures and to be branded for how you sell, not just what you sell. Slap shows how a company becomes a brand and explains why brand success is not about marketing and is in the hands of every manager and employee.
