U.S. Secretary of Agriculture, Sonny Perdue, will join attendees as the opening keynote speaker of the United Fresh Breakfast General Session on Tuesday June 26 in Chicago. Secretary Perdue will address the key issues facing the produce industry, from immigration reform and the need for a legal workforce to NAFTA and the need to retain a fair international trade framework for agriculture.
Stanford University Professor Bob Sutton will share principles from his New York Times and Wall Street Journal best-selling book, The No Asshole Rule - Building a Civilized Workplace and Surviving One That Isn't.
In this entertaining but serious presentation, Sutton highlights the best ways for companies to build successful workplaces by reducing the negative impact of demeaning and disrespectful colleagues and clients who destroy morale and drag down your company. Sutton will focus on helping you manage change, lead effectively, embrace and implement innovation, and create a healthy office environment.
