Maritz, a leading sales and marketing services company, will be represented by nine speakers at the 2010 Motivation Show, the world’s premier event for incentives, recognition rewards, and motivational meetings and events. The conference will run Oct. 12-14 in Chicago.
Barry Kirk, solution vice president of consumer loyalty for Maritz will present on the topic of gamification. Kirk will discuss the idea of adopting a game-centric view of loyalty programs, which can bring a whole new perspective to the most effective ways to engage customers. Pierre Politte, solution vice president for employee recognition, will relate how these same principles can be applied for more effective engagement of employees as well.
Jerry Klein, senior solution design strategist, Maritz Loyalty & Motivation, and Jennifer Kallery, vice president of marketing for Maritz, will explain how to use employee enrichment as an engagement strategy. The session will focus on turning employee engagement into a grassroots effort that maximizes the potential of people in an organization.
Michelle Pokorny, solution leader for sales incentives at Maritz, and Paula Godar, director of brand strategy for Maritz, will team up to lead a session exploring the science of powerful rewards and recognition. This engaging workshop will alternate between brief presentations on recent insights from the human sciences about what drives people, and interactive discussions with peers on how this knowledge can be applied in an organization and its programs.
