Your human resource department, the IdeaFestival

At the IdeaFestival, "new connections" happen all the time. Some extraordinary people, like Jan Winter, have been inspired at the festival to start businesses. Jan, in fact, is changing the fitness habits, and futures, of tens of thousands of children.

When organizations send employees to the festival, business is the real winner. Free to recharge their imaginations, to think laterally, employees return energized by what they've seen and heard and ready to make a contribution. For organizations today, which depend more than ever on human capital, that's a bottom line result.

Whether you send your employee to attend just one event or several - and trust me the effect is cumulative - you might think of the IdeaFestival as the coolest human resource department you've ever had.
