With so many companies talking about making diversity a priority but falling short of the mark, diversity and inclusivity initiatives will be successful only if everyone experiences a feeling of belonging in the workplace. It’s not just a feel-good move; it’s good for business. Study after study has shown that diversity leads to more creative teams and more profitable companies. Shelley Zalis, CEO, The Female Quotient, shares solutions to creating a culture of belonging at work to help employees—and companies—thrive. You will learn:

  • Why diversity isn’t just about gender or race, it’s also about diversity of background and mindset
  • Strategies for helping each individual feel included and like she or he belongs—regardless of gender, race or sexuality
  • Practices for getting comfortable with being uncomfortable in order for companies to progress towards more inclusive workplaces
  • Why we need accountability in order for change to happen, and how to create it

What’s is like to take a bankrupt startup and eventually sell it to a Fortune 500 Company for almost a quarter billion dollars?

And more importantly, what lessons can be conveyed from such an experience that will help you live the life you’ve imagined for yourself?

In "Irrational Persistence" Dave Zilko guides his audience through an actual “Only in America” story that details how he and his partner, starting with literally “less than nothing,” launched a fresh salsa company from the back of a tiny restaurant just outside, of all places, Detroit. Despite incredible odds they eventually built the premier deli supply company in the United States that the Campbell’s Soup Company recently purchased for $231 million.

Presented in an authentic and often humorous manner, “Irrational Persistence” both inspires and informs. It delivers practical tools that can be used immediately to foster entrepreneurial thinking, create value and deliver bottom-line results. You’ll learn:

  • the importance of, and courage required, to act entrepreneurially
  • how to search, and find, the Holy Grail of Capitalism
  • the value of never compromising your standards
  • a counterintuitive approach to sales, one in which you never sell anything
  • a unique, holistic approach to strategically building your company
