On Fire at Work – How Great Leaders Ignite Passion and Why Those People Succeed
Go beyond merely engaging today’s rapidly changing workforce and ignite “On Fire performance.”

Leaders, managers and employees will walk away with actionable ideas to find, develop and keep “on fire” employees and top talent. You’ll learn to build a world-class workplace culture where people work harder, perform better and stay longer.

Uplifting, inspiring and content-rich, it’s impossible to experience “On Fire” without igniting a passion for excellence and fanning the flames of engagement in teams.

Kick off the Expo before the show floor opens- attendees and exhibitors are encouraged to attend!
