Work Redefined: Space, Culture & Technology

Friday, April 28, 2017

Have you noticed that the workplace is changing? Workplace design, generational changes and technology are having a major impact on how people work and where they work. This year’s Ottawa County Innovation and Technology Forum will look at those trends.

Featured Presentations

Rex Miller | The Culture Advantage | Creating a Workplace that Leads to Transformation and Growth
The world surprises us weekly with new and novel challenges. Healthy and resilient cultures adapt through innovation. The most innovative organizations approach culture by design. In this presentation you will learn how they use the workplace to continually renew their cultures. You will also learn a completely new definition for culture that turns this fuzzy concept into one of your most powerful and frequently used leadership tools. Sponsored by Haworth, Inc.

David Behen & Suzanne Pauley | Making Government Citizen Centric
Michigan has brought citizen-centric government to the state’s residents and businesses. eMichigan provides mobile and web technology resources and ensures a secure portal to connect residents with a host of online services. The eMichigan team has earned Michigan placement among the nation’s top state websites in 2015 and 2016. You will learn what they have done, what is to come and how you can apply citizen centric ideals to your technology.
