REGISTER HERE: From the CEO’s Perspective Series: Culture Eats Strategy for Breakfast: Creating a Sustainable Culture, October 22, 2015

Corporate culture is the grand differentiator between a bad, good, and great company. It’s not enough just to have an amazing product and healthy profitability. Culture defines how companies compete for the best talent and treat their customers. It fuels the strategy and the brand causing it to thrive in admiration or die a slow, painful death. That’s why ‘culture eats strategy for lunch’ – or breakfast, in this case.

Join us for a candid conversation with three influential entrepreneurial CEOs who have built and scaled a strong, positive culture in a fast-growth environment. Each brings unique insight around what worked, what didn’t, what’s helped retain employees, and how they inspire their teams to succeed. 

Panelists Include:

  • Sunny Gupta, CEO & Co-Founder, Apptio
  • Matt Ehrlichman, CEO & Co-Founder, Porch
  • Scott Svenson,CEO & Co-Founder, MOD Pizza
