Our virtual 2021 Venterra Leadership Conference continues! After an action-packed first day of VLC 2021, our team leaders enjoyed another day of excitement this week, and day two of the event held more surprises for those tasked with maintaining an amazing culture at our communities and offices.
- Jessica Shaw, our Employee Learning Manager, kicked the day off by putting her enduring love for the hit Canadian TV show, Schitt’s Creek, to great use. As it turns out, the show is packed with moments that can provide some amazing lessons in leadership! From learning to stop yelling “fold the cheese” to asking for help when in over your head on a carpentry project, the presentation was a fun way to provide everyone with some valuable takeaways for leading a team the right way.
- Our VP of Technology, Andrew Basso, followed with a discussion on our progress with technology including completed and upcoming enhancements to our proprietary software for an even better resident and employee experience.
- VP of Innovation, Stephanie Gonzalez, was next up with a fireside chat-style conversation about the importance of a culture of innovation at Venterra and how to maintain a personal mindset of innovation in our daily lives.
- And Venterra CEO, Co-founder, and Director, John Foresi, wrapped up day two VLC 2021 speeches with a Q&A session that covered a range of topics, revealed personal insights, and included plenty of advice for tackling personal and professional life.
Before calling it a day, VLC 2021 attendees got a chance to see and hear Venterra team members sharing stories about how their leaders went out of their way to create amazing employee WOW moments last year, and our $2,000 winning 2020 WOW-EE Grand Prize Winner was announced.
