    About the Program

    The People Revolution: Create Conditions for People to Thrive

    The industrial revolution in the 1800s and the technical revolution in the 1990’s changed everything about the way we worked and how we ran our businesses. We are now on the front lines of a people revolution, and businesses who do not embrace that they are in the talent business are not going to survive.

    Creating the conditions for people to thrive at your company will need to take at least 30% of our time, money, and energy. If you don’t start thinking like this, just like in other revolutions, those that did not adapt to the change were left struggling.

    I am a CEO and founder too, and this practical and inspiring talk pulls from my 12-year journey building my company and the results are I have little turnover, a culture that is admired, is profitable and I work a normal 40-hour week. If I can do it, you can too!

    About the Presenter

    Kendra Prospero is a Human Resources expert who delivers highly engaging keynote presentations that help founders and leaders transform how they think and feel about work. She knows employers benefit when their team members feel included, are happier, and are more productive. Her philosophy is that we give up the best hours of our days and years of our lives for work, and we should love our jobs.

    Audiences love Kendra’s straightforward approach to keeping employee engagement a top priority for leaders. Her gifts include helping leaders understand how to create the conditions for their employees to thrive, and how that turns into profit. Every organization needs to get ahead of the curve to ensure they are an employer of choice.

    Before founding Turning the Corner, an award-winning Human Resources consulting firm and “Best Place to Work”, Kendra worked for many years as a Software Engineer for IBM but felt she was struggling in a career that left her dying on the vine. Turning the Corner is a result of her following her passion for helping others as the CEO and Founder of one of the few firms in the nation that supports growing small businesses with all their people needs. 

    As a National Speaker's Association member, she has delivered hundreds of presentations to corporate executives, business professionals, entrepreneurs, and job seekers from national corporations, including Google, Galvanize, Boomtown, and SurveyGizmo.

    Recently nominated for Outstanding Women in Business and one of Colorado's best and brightest leaders, everyone has benefited from her passionate and pioneering approach. Kendra continues to inspire the workforce and keeps employee engagement at the forefront of growing organizations presenting at various venues such as Business Chambers, Economic Councils, Workforce Centers, Universities, Start-Up Communities, Professional Associations, Company Conferences, Training Sessions, Job Search Meetups, and more.

    Kendra loves helping people get results, leading her team to greater places, and challenging us all to change the world one job at a time.
