“Unleashing True Employee Potential Through Personalized Connection”

How can you possibly navigate five different generations under one working roof? With so much difference between working styles and seasonality, how will you bridge the gap between these generations?

Believe it or not, employees still want the same things: purposeful work, appreciation and a good cup of coffee. Join Kelli Valade, President & CEO of TDn2K, as she walks through the dynamics of a generational workforce and the importance of meeting people where they are to understand the whole person. Through individualized, personalized connection, leaders can challenge, inspire and unleash true employee potential in a diverse workplace. Come for the discussion, stay for the conversation, and leave with a renewed understanding of how you can build an environment where everyone has value.

 

“Where your talents and the needs of the world cross; there lies your vocation.” Aristotle’s wisdom has guided Kelli Valade’s career since the tender age of 16, when she landed her first restaurant job as a hostess. It was there Kelli found the same hospitality, the same love of great food and the same connection around the table she’d experienced her entire childhood, cooking and eating Italian food around her grandmother’s kitchen table in New York.

Kelli discovered early where her passion for life intersected with work. She was hooked; and she’s built a career living out that passion, working her way up through Operations, then Human Resources, where she led HR, Recruiting and Compensation for national chains like TGI Friday’s and On The Border Mexican Grill & Cantina.

Kelli joined TDn2K as President and CEO in early 2019. Prior to TDn2K Kelli spent over 20 years at Brinker International in various roles including leading Human Resources then serving as Chief Operating Officer for Chili’s Grill & Bar. As the first female President in the brand’s history, she was responsible for 80,000 + ChiliHeads, more than 1,600 restaurants in 31 countries and two territories. A compelling and passionate keynote speaker, she frequently speaks to students and professionals across the industry, sharing best practices and lessons from her lifelong journey.
