Day 1 – John Foley – 2016’s key-note speaker

16th of November

For you who participated at the forum in 2013 you received a copy of Karen Martins book: The Outstanding Organization. It is said that the most important thing should be the first or the last thing that you say. In Karen’s last chapter she tells a story about an organization called Blue Angels, an organization that has had outstanding results, you can read the chapter for free here. During this year’s conference – 2016 – we will be able to listen to a former solo pilot from Blue Angels, John Foley. He will share with you: methods and tools on how to build high performing teams.

It will be a good mix of structural processes for continuous improvement that has been improved since 1946. John’s lecture will also include insightful models for how you create trust in your organization.

John Foley has since his time as pilot for the Blue Angels helped several well-known companies to improve their business. He has also been a Sloan Fellow at Standford School of Business.
