Speaker Series: "Office Culture - Step Outside the Cubicle"

MCE, Tech Council

4/10/15 12:00 PM

Office culture, that ambiguous little catchall buzz phrase, has only recently become in-vogue with business.  Creating a successful office culture launches a productive, positive environment that compels employees to jump in to a passion for work, the heart to see projects to fruition, and the desire to become a pivotal piece of a company’s continued growth and success. Join us for a dynamic, interactive panel - we've brought in some terrific exemplars and leaders to share what works and what doesn't. Bring your team and share in the story telling!

The Panel 
Kelly Ennis, Managing Principal, The Verve Partnership
Kelly Ennis has been involved in the fundamental evolution of corporate interiors in a varying degree of project types over the past twenty years. With a full understanding of translating identity, business strategy and culture into interior spaces, her expertise is in nailing early on how these three points impact the workplace-from a planning and design standpoint. Her experience gives her the opportunity to translate extensively, the future of work, current and changing workplace trends and how those trends affect employee engagement, businesses and the environment.In 2009, as the sole and founding principal of The Verve Partnership, Kelly has self-funded and grown a design firm of one to a thriving firm of 12 in just five years. This has been done with grit, determination, amazing team members and amazing clients such as Penn Mutual Life Insurance, Under Armour, and MECU Bank, to name a few. Kelly is involved in many industry and non-industry associations where she has chaired committees, led round-table panels, rode over 1,000 miles benefiting Moveable Feast and created an event benefiting, via a scholarship fund, students of Interior Design and Architecture. She is a certified/licensed interior designer in many jurisdictions and holds a BFA from the Maryland Institute College of Art.
