Landscape Structures-sponsored keynote speaker delivers tips for engaging with employees.

Landscape Structures Inc., a Delano, Minn.-based commercial playground equipment manufacturer, along with its South Dakota playground consultant, Dakota Fence, will exhibit at the 2014 South Dakota Parks & Recreation Association (SDPRA) State Conference Sept. 22-24, in Spearfish. The conference will feature Scott Friedman, author and president of the National Speakers Association, as the keynote speaker. This learning experience was made possible through the 2014-2015 State Association Speaker Scholarship program from Landscape Structures.

Friedman will present two sessions during the State Conference, both of which will give attendees practical and effective tools to help them better engage with and honor employees, clients and accomplishments. With lighthearted humor and refreshing honesty, he’ll deliver tips for turning grievances into gratitude, dismay into play and failure into lessons learned. With research to back-up his ideas, Friedman will offer ready-to-use examples that showcase the power of the “Celebration Mindset” in action. All of which will help transform workplaces for the better, and guide attendees, their employees and clients toward achieving their greatest potential.

Join Friedman for 90- and 75-minute speaking sessions on Tuesday, Sept. 23, at 8 a.m. and 1 p.m. Attendees will have the opportunity to visit Dakota Fence and Landscape Structures in the exhibit hall following Friedman’s sessions to learn about the latest trends in playground design including inclusive playgrounds.
