PRESENTER: Wes Love

Tuesday, August 9, 2022

Organizational culture is fundamental to long-term growth.  However, its existence and its impact on organizations every day are not well understood and lead to loss of productivity, staff, and sanity! The CultureCatalyst is an interactive discussion where attendees will gain a deeper understanding of what organizational culture is, why it is important, and (most importantly) how they can build an organization that is able to attract and retain highly talented and engaged employees for sustained success and growth through its people and its culture. 

Wes Love is a Culture Cultivator and co-founder of CultureStoke. Wes and his partnerMarty Imeshelp leaders, and their organizations build great company culture so they can attract top talent and grow their people and profits.  They’ve supported 45+ leaders and organizations on the Central Coast, including South County Chambers of Commerce, Sloco, and the California State University system. 

In 2018 he joined California Polytechnic State University-San Luis Obispo as an Organizational Improvement and Transformation Specialist. In 2019, he became an Adjunct Professor where he teaches continuous improvement principles and practices in the Orfalea College of Business.

Wes currently has his BA in Organizational Leadership and Masters of Science in Leadership & Management studies.  Through coaching, consulting, workshops, and speaking engagements he believes the Central Coast is an amazing place to live and is on a mission to make it an amazing place to work!
