Richard Sheridan
2017 Opening Keynote Speaker
“Build a Workplace  People Love – Just Add Joy”

Richard Sheridan is the CEO and Chief Storyteller at Menlo Innovations. Richard spends the majority of his time sharing the Menlo Way through teaching classes, leading tours, speaking at conferences, and mentoring entrepreneurs in the community and sharing joy! As the Opening Keynote Speaker for Leadership Connections 2017, Richard will explore how an intentionally joyful culture is central to a learning organization. He will discuss what joy looks like, feels like, and how it is organized. Along the way, attendees will consider workplace productivity, how transparency conquers fear, and how quality can be a natural result of a team built on trust. As Richard suggests, “Companies fail to innovate because they fail to drive fear out of the workplace.” Join us in thinking about how to replace fear with joy!

“To truly run an experiment, you need to try something out more than once, because at first—no matter what you try—it will probably be bumpy.”

— Richard Sheridan
