About the Event

This is the moment for HR, business, and government leaders to step in, innovate, and re-write the future of work.

But how do you transform culture? How do you capture, and sustain, engagement from your workforces? What are ways that you can unify your employees behind a common goal or metric to really drive change at your organization?

In 2007, Mayor Mick Cornett was asking similar questions. His answers to these questions lead him to put Oklahoma City on a diet after it appeared on a list of the most obese cities in the U.S. As a change leader, he understood that to make his city a great place to work and live, it had to become healthier too. The campaign was a success, with OKC dropping a collective million pounds in four years.

That success has led companies and cities around the world – plus Michelle Obama, Oprah, and Ellen DeGeneres – to turn to Mayor Cornett for guidance and inspiration in prompting change while transforming cultures and mindsets. The lessons are needed more today than ever before as companies face unprecedented challenges and unknowns in the coming months.

Join Mick Cornett, four-term mayor of Oklahoma City and one of Fortune Magazine’s “50 Greatest Leaders in the World” in conversation with Daniel Freedman, Co-CEO of Burnalong and NYT best-selling author, to learn:
