The Premier Experience for Rule-Breakers

The Freedom at Work™ Summit is not another generic culture conference.

 It is the PREMIER transformational training experience for world-class C-suite, HR, and L&D strategic leaders committed to building high-energy, high-growth, and high-performing workplace cultures using freedom and organizational democracy rather than fear and control.

At the Freedom at Work Summit, produced by The WorldBlu® Academy,
we bring to life the proven practices, skills, and behaviors for building a
freedom-centered workplace culture.

We teach you the proven Freedom at Work™ system we’ve taught companies
and leaders for over 20 years, and give you a community of support
to take action to create extraordinary transformations in your company.

It’s an event for the rule-breakers of the status quo who are committed to giving
real power to their people, growing their bottom-line, and
changing our world for the better by using our proven systems and methods.

Along the way, you will hear from world-class, SURPRISE guest speakers who will offer
insights, best practices, and inspiration for your journey.

We will cap off our powerful and transformational two-day experience with our
Night of Honor, a black-tie gala that honors champions of Freedom at Work.

If you’re a leader who is ready to learn these strategies for success
and lasting culture transformation, then you are invited to this premier experience for top leaders.

The Tribe Experience
October 20-21st

Join us for an optional two days for fun, networking, and building lasting relationships
with other member of the WorldBlu tribe.

We know that some of the best relationships aren't always formed in the conference
ballroom - they happen in unexpected moments of serendipity.

That's why during our optional pre-event on Saturday, October 20th and Sunday, October 22nd, we'll be hosting a range of experimental activities that will involve surf, sand, and a lot of sun.

Feel free to bring your family and join us for two days of relaxation, connection, and fun!

The Main Experience
October 22-23rd

At the Freedom at Work Summit we bring to life the proven practices, skills,
and behaviors for building a high-performing,
freedom-centered, workplace culture.

We teach you the proven Freedom at Work™ system we've taught companies and
leaders for over 20 years, and give you a community of support to take action
to create extraordinary transformations in your company.

Every day we see leaders and organizations wasting thousands of dollars on perks and
culture programs that don't address the real issues, lack a clear deep strategy,
and don't create lasting, transformational change.

The fact is, there's a huge difference between the ideas you see other businesses do
that you hope will work in your organization and having an
actual proven system that does work.

At the Freedom at Work Summit, we take a deep dive into the proven mindset,
leadership skills, and organizational systems and processes you
must have in place to succeed.

The methods we teach aren't about perks or cramming you with more information
that you will forget in a week.

Instead, we teach you the actionable best practices, insights, and strategies you can
immediatelyapply that will help build a high-performing
and in-demand workplace culture.

Along the way, you will hear from world-class SURPRISE guest speakers who will offer
their insights, tips, and inspiration for your freedom-centered journey.

We will cap off our powerful and transformational two-day gathering with our
Night of Honor, a black-tie gala that honors champions of Freedom at Work.

This is why many of the top brands in the world come to the Freedom at Work Summit.

Our process simply works.

"Freedom at Work Helps us achieve our financial goals."

Geonetric is a Freedom-Centered Workplace because we remain convinced it’s the best way to implement our mission: to build an exceptional team that does revolutionary work to “wow!” our clients. Freedom at Work™ means we trust our employees in ways most traditional corporations fear. Our employees are financially savvy; they understand our financial goals and how their team’s work contributes to Geonetric’s overall success. Our employees also understand our clients, their needs, and the ever-changing healthcare market. Because teams are able to organize, prioritize, and manage their own work, they deliver value to our clients faster than ever. The people closest to, and most knowledgeable about, any problem are the ones who are responsible for solving it. The results? Consistently high scores in both client and employee satisfaction, the ability to hire and retain top talent in a highly competitive environment, achieving our financial goals, and helping our clients do the same.

"Freedom at work is right in principle and practice."

Freedom at Work™ is right in principle and right in practice. A freedom-centered workplace means one where people are able to focus on simply doing their best, rather than politics and silly rules. It can create a great place to work in, and as a result, a more effective, productive, and profitable company. Freedom at Work™ is common sense. Why would anybody want to restrict people’s freedom?

"Freedom at work has driven a 10% reduction in labor cost."

At NRI, the values of “Fairness + Dignity” and “Individual + Collective” drive our belief that we must commit to the people who come to work every day if we expect them to make any sort of commitment to us. Our challenge was to break the industry norm of using temp agency employees, and hire people based on values and fit within NRI. We mentored people, set specific goals and accountability, and increased the ratio of NRI employees on the production floor from 40% to 99%. These people are now more engaged, happier, and have seen an increase in pay and benefits, and NRI has seen a 10% reduction in labor cost.

"Working in a freedom-centered workplace is a breath of fresh air!"

Working in a freedom-centered, democratic workplace is a breath of fresh air! Over the years, I have been a slave to micromanaging supervisors, stressing over perfect time clock punches, and subjected to unfair schedule and workplace practices. DreamHost sounded way too good to be true, and I was waiting for the honeymoon to be over. Several years later, and I’m still a happy camper! Freedom at Work™ used to be an unfamiliar concept as I have never had that before. It’s refreshing to see honest and open conversations regarding all aspects of the company, and all the cards on the table, whether good or bad. Read More ...Read Less

"Freedom at work allows people to bring their true best selves to work every day."

At New Belgium, we knew early on that we wanted to share the rights and responsibilities of ownership with our co-workers. We initially created a phantom stock plan which has transitioned into a full, 100% employee-owned, ESOP. Part of being an owner here is understanding the business of running the business. To that end, we practice open book management and engage all co-workers in our annual strategic planning. We encourage open and honest communications throughout the organization. You can question, prod, and disagree with decisions, which makes for a robust planning process. We feel transparency and inclusivity foster trust and engagement, while allowing people to bring their true best selves [to work] every day. Read More ...Read Less
