Do You Even Know Me?: How Genuine Curiosity Sparks Loyalty and Retention
James RobilottaJames Robilotta, CSP

Opening Keynote Speaker Sponsored by HPN Global

Curiosity creates community but small talk is painful and teams aren't built over email, so what are we supposed to do? Your organizations are filled with opportunities to authentically connect with stakeholders who can help validate our values, consider a new way of thinking, and reflect about the role we play in the world around us. In this hysterical and insightful keynote we will talk about how to ask better questions, change the way we hear people’s stories and insights, and apply what we learn from others. And that starts right here at FSAE's Annual Conference, so let’s laugh, learn, and get a little more curious together.
