Building Culture Through Human Connection, a Culture Crush and Culture First Phoenix Event
Do you ever feel like you are moving through the motions at work and not really connecting with the people there? You want to know them more and truly connect but you aren’t. Do you ever feel this same way when you are at a networking event? As if it is a competition for how many names and business cards you can share?
Culture Crush Business and Culture First Phoenix have come together to bring you an evening about true connection with employees, teammates, and others both in and outside of the office.
True connection with others helps good leaders become the best leaders.
Register and join us for this night of connection - and your first drink is on us!
We will be led through an interactive and impactful networking portion with Jen Burwell from Mother and Founder Co. before the speakers kick things off.
Then we will have the opportunity to hear from Culture Craig himself- Craig Forman with CultureAmp.
He is on the mission to help the world work better by improving the places we work. He is obsessed with how humans work, both individually and together in groups and he is going to share some of the tips and lessons with us.
We'll also hear from Bobi Seredich with Southwest Institute for Emotional Intelligence. At SIEI, they have a proven approach to teaching EI skills that are immediately applied to business growth for influencers and leaders to connect confidently with each other in more meaningful and productive ways.

President & Co-Founder
My Mission: To help the world work better by improving the places we work.
I am obsessed with how humans work, both individually and together in groups.
Given the percentage of our lives that is spent at work, I believe that the more connected to and inspired by our work and workplace we can be, the better we are as humans, and thus the more successful our organizations will be.
I work every day to improve the state of our workplaces by supporting organizations to leverage data in making more human focused decisions, that results in more engaged people and more successful organizations.
I am also highly focused on creating change one person at a time through building Culture Amp's Culture First community. Our goal is to build the worlds largest community of people, both online and offline, who believe that a better world of work is possible and are willing to take action to make this a reality.
If you want to step up as a Culture Activist and join me in this mission, follow me here on LinkedIn and let’s start a conversation.

Kindra Maples is your energetic and passionate host of the Culture Crush Business Podcast.
She is spartan racer, past animal trainer, previous magician’s assistant, and has a weakness for Oreo cookie shakes. Her journey working with people actually started working with animals as a teenager (don’t worry we won’t go that far back for her bio).
She worked for over 15 years in the zoo industry working with animals and the public. Her passion of working with animals shifted into working with people in education, operations and leadership roles. From there her passion of leadership and helping people develop has continued to grow.
Her experience in non-profit operations, communications, and program engagement has brought her to the place she is today- leading the only podcast that focuses solely on company cultures. Her experiences have built her passion and her “why” in areas of culture building, engagement, and growing strong teams.
Then came the opportunity to launch the Culture Crush Business Podcast on the Phoenix Business RadioX platform and she jumped on it.
Her unique experiences have built her to become the innovative, collaborative leader that is interested in showcasing companies with a great company culture while also sharing the resources that are available to help other companies build their great company culture.
