Ticket purchases include copies of The Excellence Dividend: Meeting the Tech Tide with Work That Wows and Jobs That Last. This New & Noted lecture is presented in partnership with Carnegie Library of Pittsburgh.
For decades Tom Peters has been preaching the gospel of putting people first, and in today’s rapidly changing business environment, this message is more important than ever.
As our region grapples with workforce development, Gallup numbers show that fewer than one-third of employees feel engaged with their work, and one study suggests that fully half of American jobs are at risk due to technology. The Excellence Dividend stems from a simple proposition that an unabashed commitment to excellence in all we do is the best defense—and offense—in the face of overwhelming change.
With his unparalleled expertise and inimitable charisma, Peters offers brilliantly simple, actionable guidelines for success. He provides a roadmap for organizations and individuals to thrive amidst the tech tsunami, and he has a lot of fun doing it. The Excellence Dividend is an important new book from one of today’s greatest business thinkers.
A book signing will follow the lecture. A selection of backlist titles and the author’s current book will be available for sale from Classic Lines.
