1st Presenter: Dave Gregory –
Co-Founder, President & Chief Executive Officer, Conatus3
Dave’s passion is helping business leaders and organizations apply neuroscience to improve how they identify their purpose, align their vision, mission, and brand to that purpose, and improve performance as a result. He believes the science is clear. People want to achieve their best possible results when their purpose and their organization’s purpose are aligned. Creating discretionary effort is both an Art and a Science.
Dave began his career in creating exceptional customer experiences as an outbound sales agent in the 1980’s. During his 30+ years of experience he has also be engaged in collections, retail stores, inbound sales & service, appointment setting, technical support, back office process design and development, and several Alternative Markets projects. He has served in a variety of Operations, Human Resources, and Vendor Relations roles. Dave’s experience in supporting some of the world’s most valuable Brands have taught him that changing employees’ habits of thoughts about themselves and their organizations requires specific processes. Executing on the implementation of these processes requires education for most leaders. Only when the education is implemented will the results improve.
