Achievers is Excited Announces Speakers For Ace 2018 Conference

Entrepreneur Bethenny Frankel, Leadership Expert Tiffany Dufu, and Award-Winning Journalist Celeste Headlee will share their unique perspective on how to achieve success and motivate teams at work

SAN FRANCISCO and TORONTO June 19, 2018  Achievers, an industry-leading provider of employee recognition and engagement solutions, today announced the full keynote speaker lineup for its annual user conference, Achievers Customer Experience (ACE), which will be held in Toronto, Canada on October 23-24, 2018. Celebrating its ninth year, ACE brings together businesses looking to design and advance employee engagement programs, along with guest speakers and HR thought leaders focused on improving the employee experience and driving engagement to achieve desired business outcomes.

In addition to already-announced New York Times best-selling author and positive psychology researcher Neil Pasricha, Achievers is delighted to welcome this esteemed lineup of keynote speakers to the ACE stage:

  • Bethenny Frankel, Entrepreneur and New York Times best-selling author, will share key lessons from her decades-long career building and running successful businesses. Her keynote will serve to inspire attendees to reach their goals and achieve success with a little grit, risk taking, passion, and humor.
  • Tiffany Dufu, Leadership Expert, Founder & CEO of The CRU, and Author’s, session, Live Your Story, Discover Your Leadership: How to awaken your passion and purpose to successfully motivate yourself and others, will explore the correlation between passion, purpose and leadership success. Dufu will explain why most people don’t know what their purpose is, and how each of us can not only discover it, but unleash it to motivate ourselves and others.
  • Celeste Headlee, an award-winning journalist, will focus on the science-based fundamentals of communication. Headlee asserts that learning how to listen effectively, especially in the workplace, can provide a true competitive advantage in any goal you’re trying to achieve. In a time when conversations are often minimized to a few words in a text message and lack of meaningful communication and conversation abounds, Headlee sheds a much-needed light on the lost and essential art of conversation.

Each year, ACE tackles top trends in employee engagement and employee experience that are important to our attendees. This thought-provoking lineup of keynote speakers will offer their unique viewpoint on engagement, leadership, and perseverance—all while motivating, educating and entertaining our ACE audience, – said Achievers General Manager, Aris Zakinthinos. Achievers is excited to offer these invigorating keynote sessions that will spark fresh ideas and strategies, and will allow the attendees to walk away from our conference with actionable best practices they can leverage to advance team and business goals.

ACE will be held at the Delta Toronto Hotel beginning with its eighth annual Achievers 50 Most Engaged Workplaces™ Awards Gala on October 22nd.
