Chair & Principal of PGAV Destinations Will Present at IAAPA Leadership Conference 2017
(St. Louis, MO – February 21, 2017) – PGAV Destinations’ Chair and Principal Mike Konzen will discuss “Cultivating a Creative Culture” at 11 a.m. on Wednesday, March 8 at IAAPA Leadership Conference 2017.
As head of the leading attraction design firm PGAV Destinations, Konzen will present innovations and ideas that can help to energize, grow, and encourage healthy, creative company environments.
“Company culture is essential to your overall success,” says Konzen. “It is without a doubt one of, if not the most, important and inimitable assets of your organization. It’s time to challenge staff to consider the kinds of experiences that will induce learning and enrich their environment.”
Konzen will reveal the results of international studies and anecdotal experiences about how employees of this destination design firm have shaped its culture, and how company leadership helps to nurture that growth. Topics will include professional development programs, storytelling, hiring practices, local volunteer initiatives, and other community development projects.
Konzen’s presentation will be based on PGAV Destinations’ latest issue of Destinology: Curating a Creative Culture. Destinology is the firm’s quarterly publication that is sent to over 10,000 destination managers around the world and provides research and insights on significant topics impacting today’s attraction management landscape.
