    Topic:

    Putting fun back into the workplace!

     When is the last time you had fun at work?  Fun isn’t just a concept.  It is an experience that should be a way of life.   However, most employees in the American workplace are working in mind-numbing, joyless jobs alongside uninspiring bosses.   Mr. Veeck will discuss creating a culture where the best people will want to work and customers will want to spend their money.  It is all about understanding how having a positive attitude and finding passion in the job can help overcome challenges and make the work environment more productive, more fulfilling, and more fun.
