Keynote Speaker for CUE Spring 2019: Dee Ann Turner #CUE2019

We’ve received requests to have someone from Chik-fil-A as a speaker at a CUE event to discuss how they have built such a successful culture. I’m pleased to announce that we have just added the woman who literally wrote the book on Chik-fil-A culture.   Dee Ann Turner is the author of It’s My Pleasure: The Impact of Extraordinary Talent and a Compelling Culture.  She will be our opening keynote on Monday morning, May 6th in Atlanta.   You can learn more about the conference here.

Dee Ann Turner is the former Vice President, Sustainability for Chick-fil-A, Inc. She began her career with the organization more than 30 years ago and has spent the majority of her career developing and leading Corporate Talent. She played an intricate role in growing Chick-fil-A’s unique and highly regarded culture while overseeing the recruitment, selection, and retention of corporate staff and the recruitment and selection of Chick-fil-A Franchisees.

Dee Ann’s insightful knowledge and applicable tools for building an incredible and influential company culture are revealed in her book, It’s My Pleasure: The Impact of Extraordinary Talent and A Compelling Culture.

Dee Ann attended Cincinnati Christian University in Cincinnati, Ohio, majoring in Journalism and Christian Education. She later completed her education at Clayton State University in Atlanta with a degree in Management. She received further certifications at Goizueta School of Business at Emory University, Darden School of Business at the University of Virginia, Kenan-Flagler Business School at UNC-Chapel Hill, and she completed the prestigious Advanced Management Program at Harvard Business School.

Need help getting the approval to attend?

Let’s face it..

When you’re working for someone else, it’s hard to ask permission to spend their money, especially when it comes to attending a conference. The ticket cost, airfare, hotel, and other expenses start to add up in your boss’ head before you can mutter the words, “Can I go?”

We’ve got some tips to help you get that approval to register from your manager!

Fall 2018 CUE Conference

With stellar networking opportunities built into the program and the most up-to-date information on labor/employee relations and engagement trends, CUE keeps you ahead of the curve in today’s rapidly changing labor environment!

Need a taste of what we will be talking about at CUE? Check out this TEDx talk from Justine Constantine. From a combat veteran, published author, leadership expert, and inspirational speaker comes a story of courage, injury, resilience, and triumph. Justin Constantine is a driving force in the Post-9/11 veteran community, and he demonstrates that we are all stronger than we think we are.
