“I always come away from E.P.I.C. feeling motivated, inspired and always with a new outlook on not only the way I do my job but in the way I live my life.”
VP, Risk Management
Empowering People Through Creativity
In the midst of planning a 2006 annual meeting with my team, I decided to throw out all the rules and created a “business meeting” where no business was to be discussed. No pie charts, no sales goals, no marketing plans or business projections. And in their place: discussions of self-awareness, urges to follow your dreams, and lessons about life.
In an industry that requires our staff to be patient, empathetic and mindful everyday, we want to invest in creative and meaningful ways to energize and enrich the lives of our employees and leadership.
