EXCELerate 2015 Conference Announces Keynote Speaker—Dan Price The CEO Who Cut His Pay to set $70K as His Company’s Minimum Wage
He’s the most famous person, you may not have heard about yet! That’s because his success has risen so rapidly.
We are very excited to announce Dan Price, CEO of Gravity Payments, as a Luncheon Keynote for the EXCELerate 2015 conference!
Join us for Dan’s session “Building a Business with Value and Integrity” at the Fairmont Waterfront Hotel in Vancouver, BC on October 2nd, 2015.
Gravity Payments is a credit card and mobile payments company that’s fast making a big name for itself. Dan and Gravity Payments have been awarded the 2014 Best Workplaces Award, the 2013 Hire Power Award by Inc Magazine, and the company’s workplace perks have been recognized by Forbes and NBC News.
Dan was honored by President Obama with the 2010 SBA National Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award and was Entrepreneur Magazine’s “Entrepreneur of 2014″.
“We started our company to help our community businesses, because they deserve the same great customer service and low prices that big corporate businesses get,” says Dan, “and we’ve grown our company by earning the trust of each and every one of our valued customers.”
Dan also believes, “Take care of your employees, and they’ll take care of your customers.” His most recent bold action raised Gravity’s minimum wage to $70,000 to provide his team a better quality of life and spur them on to improve on the success of his customers .
Would you give up some of your salary? Are there other ways to collaborate with your employees to generate greater growth? How can you leverage values such as honesty, transparency and doing business with integrity? How could you take a bold move to be better?
This event is open to the business community, but space is limited. Full conference packages, and/or Luncheon Tickets to hear Dan Price’s Keynote address can be purchased here.
