The Great Resignation
Why This is the Biggest Opportunity We’ve Never Seen to Attract and Retain Incredible Teams.
Regardless of which research we subscribe to; the outlook is bleak: employees coast-to-coast are transitioning jobs at rates we haven’t seen since the Vietnam War.
And while many of us think this is a threat to our workplace culture and organizational success, the truth is that the opportunity has never been greater to establish a one-of-a-kind culture that attracts and keeps an incredible team.
Instead of calling it ‘The Great Resignation’, perhaps it should be called ‘The Great Reconfiguration’.
After all, people aren’t leaving the workforce, they’re aligning with a lifestyle that suits them.
This is where the secrets lie.
In this head-scratching, insight-filled, and unexpectedly funny keynote, workplace culture and future of work expert Eric Termuende takes us on a journey filled with out-of-the-box ideas that are budgetfree and immediately actionable as we work to not just survive ‘The Great Resignation’ but thrive through it.

I’ve contracted and supported many Executive Leadership Summits for the agency over the years and it is not often that they say…”This is the best Summit we’ve ever had!”
There’s been a lot of that type of feedback today and it is much deserved and well-earned praise.
In October 2020, in the middle of this Pandemic crisis, we had the pleasure to work with Eric for one of our episodes of our Dell Technologies Thought Leader Series. In addition to being a very fun person to work with, Eric was very generous of his time and an amazing presenter that our customers love!!!! His story was very inspiring and helped people with a different perspective during these difficult times.MICHEL LAGACÉ – DELL TECHNOLOGIES
