If you’re looking for lessons on building great companies, you could do worse than someone who has developed a reputation for interviewing the most influential entrepreneurs on the planet.
That can describe Guy Raz, the former TED Radio Hour host whose “How I Built This” podcast with NPR has turned into one of the most listened-to shows in the country. By 2018, some 20 million people were hearing him monthly.
With a new book dropping next month, he is an ideal keynote for Introduced by Technical.ly, our daylong conference focused on introducing you to ideas for building better workplaces. On Friday, Sept. 25, he’ll close out a day of workshops and conversations for company builders — the entrepreneurs, innovative business leaders and HR professionals who spend their time thinking about company culture.
Tickets for Introduced are now live ($100) and the first 300 registrations will get a signed copy of Raz’s brand-new book shipped to your doorstep.
Raz won’t be the only draw. The full slate of speakers will be confirmed shortly, and many of the topics are already in focus:
- What Responsibility Does the Tech Economy Have for a “Just Recovery”?
- Entrepreneurship is Declining. Recessions Kill Startups. What Are We Doing About It?
- How to Grow Innovation Culture in a Non-Tech Environment
- Universities as Economic Drivers
- Founder, CEO and People: Company Culture Starts at the Top
- Workshop: Approaches for Better Work-Life Balance
- Workshop: Methods for Auditing and Improving Diverse Hiring Strategies
- Make the Hire, Send the Wire: Real Equitable Wealth Creation
Thanks to the sponsors of the conference:
- Comcast LiftLabs
- AmFam Institute
- Harmelin Media
- Independence Blue Cross
- Morgan Lewis
- Nividous Software
- Relay Network, LLC
- Striven ERP Software
- Think Company
- University of Pennsylvania
- Ben Franklin Technology Partners
- Neat Company
- Science Center
The day’s conversations will be split into three sections: Better Employee Engagement, More Equitable Hometowns and a room of workshops for real takeaways. The promise of the day is for you to leave with action to make your workplace better — mirroring the reporting here at Technical.ly.
