Welk Resorts recently hosted motivational speaker Scott Greenberg to give the closing keynote to 150 executives at the Welk company summit at the Hyatt Aviara Resort in Carlsbad, CA. The event was attended by staff from four Welk properties located in San Diego, Palm Springs, Branson and Cabo San Lucus.
Greenberg’s presentation was entitled, “Survival of the Finest: Thriving During Times of Change.” The program focused on ways to adapt to change while preserving the company’s values.
“The company is entering an exciting growth phase," says Greenberg. "The goal is to expand operations without harming the warm work environment that has distinguished its family-like culture.”
In addition to managing its four resorts, Welk is now developing new properties in Hawaii, Colorado and the Lake Tahoe Area.
