Monday Nov 2, 2015

5:30pm Networking | 6 – 7:30pm Program

Award Winning CEO of ALOM Global Supply Chain Mgmt
including the 2013 Silver Stevie Award as the best global woman-owned company
(which is also the Bay Area’s biggest)

Hannah discussed strategies and practical advice for creating an inclusive, performance oriented company culture with a CEO who is conscious about building a unique culture.




Key Take Aways included…

– Get a handle on what inclusiveness means and how you can make it happen in your company
– Develop new, creative culture strategies that deliver recognizable value to your customers
– Learn how to drive performance without driving people away (or into the ground).

But how do you define and nurture the right culture? What does it take to hire and manage for that culture? ALOM CEO Hannah Kain has contemplated this question throughout her management career. Born in Denmark, Ms. Kain brought a Danish leadership style to the company that she built over the last 18 years. A multi-year winner of one of the best 100 companies to work for in the Bay Area, winner of numerous management, industry, customer, and peer awards, ALOM is a midsized company making a difference to its customers, employees and the community.
