IAEE Launches CultureCreation
In conjunction with its Midwestern Chapter, the International Association of Exhibitions and Events™ (IAEE) is launching CultureCreation – its newest education offering to be held 5 June 2014 in Chicago, Ill.
IAEE has designed this one-day workshop to teach participants how to build a workplace culture of trust, innovation, and productivity using The Great Place to Work Giftwork® approach where everyday tasks, often seen as obligations, become opportunities to build trust within a company's teams - as well as with its customers.
"We are proud to be at the forefront of this very unique concept," says IAEE President and CEO David DuBois, CMP, CAE, FASAE, CTA. "Exhibitions and events thrive on teamwork, which is the backbone of our industry. The knowledge gained from this program will serve as a huge benefit for those who want to excel in the face-to-face business environment and create their own personalized cultures."
CultureCreation's program will include these key areas of focus:
• A participatory articulation of the benefits of creating a great workplace
• Assessment of individual behaviors as contributions to building and sustaining a great workplace
• Training on the Giftwork model for fostering trust in the work group and with customers
• Insights from, and Q&A with, leaders from across the exhibitions and events industry
• Videos and examples from the best companies
