The 2008 Annual Conference in Newport Beach, California April 27th—30th was a huge success.  Employers from all industries, levels and departments including human resources, benefits, compensation and management professionals from around the world met to network with their peers and learn how to develop effective employee recognition systems that enhance employee engagement and performance.

The 2008 RPI 11TH Annual Conference began with Cargill’s corporate vice president and president of Cargill Meat Solutions Bill Buckner and Karen Sachs, Senior Diversity Consultant speaking on recognition and globalization. Monday, April 28th featured the best selling author Bill Catlette from the Contented Cows series and Bob Nelson, Ph.D. from the 1001 Ways series. Tuesday, Dr. Steve L. Robbins  spoke on issues of diversity, inclusion and cultural competence. Wednesday, professional speaker, radio host and author, Ed Horrell presented The Kindness Revolution.

What’s new to the conference included a New-Comer’s Attendee Open House Reception Sunday, April 27th from 5:30pm to 6:00 pm to acclimate new attendees to our conference. And back by popular demand was Mug of Motivation Chat every morning with breakfast. In addition to these dynamic industry leaders, attendees learned from educators and leaders in the numerous workshops scheduled throughout the conference.

We want to express our sincere gratitude to our generous sponsors and exhibitors.
