Program Details

Keynote Speaker: Ari Weinzweig

Professionals from around the region are invited to CREW Detroit’s Keynote luncheon Nov. 19 featuring Ari Weinzweig, co-owner and founding partner of Zingerman’s Bakehouse and ZingTrain. Ari will present Zingerman’s 12 Natural Laws of Business with a special focus on how to address the energy crisis in the American Workplace.

The first 50 CREW Detroit members to register will receive a book from Ari’s series on being an effective and more-fulfilled professional.

Here’s what attendees can expect from Ari’s Keynote Nov. 19:
Every leader knows how challenging it is to create a culture that keeps their employees engaged, inspired, focused on a common goal and bringing their best selves to work. Ari calls the apathy and distrust that emerge when the culture flounders “The Energy Crisis in the American Workplace”. In this inspiring and thought-provoking keynote, Ari will introduce the 12 Natural Laws of Business from his first book in the Guide to Good Leading Series. He’ll explain why operating in violation of the Laws is creating this energy crisis. And he’ll present powerfully simple and meaningful ways to help your team or organization live within the Natural Laws and become more successful and sustainable, all while creating positive lives for your employees and customers!
