As promised, here are some photos of our beautiful team at the Best & Brightest Milwaukee Winners Gala! The morning started with mingling and breakfast with our fellow Milwaukee winners. We then listened to useful team-building advice from great key-note speakers: Steve Lowisz, CEO of Qualigence International, and Eric Coryell, Founder of Core Connections. Moderator Nicole Martin also interviewed a group of panelists: Carrie Adams from Enterprise Holdings, Tracey Barret from NVISIA, and Kevin Ralofsky from Verve, a Credit Union.

Main Highlights

Being a part of the Best & Brightest Milwaukee Companies to work for is more than an honor. It is also an opportunity to learn how others have found success in creating great work environments. The key-note speakers gave valuable advice on what makes up a great team. In addition, the panelists shared insights on how their own teams function so well. More specifically, topics that were covered include:

  • Asking yourself the true purpose and goals of your company, and whether or not your team is on the same page.
  • Asking yourself ‘why’ you have that purpose.
  • How your team is your most important asset.
  • What to do/consider when your employees ask for a higher salary.
  • The main traits that make up a successful team.
  • How to address weak points in a team, why it’s imperative to build trust, and the actions people take that can majorly affect things.

More Take-Aways

In addition to the valuable insights shared by these influential speakers, it was also great to hear more about the other winners at the gala. Companies that received special notice shared their tactics for keeping their teams working hard and loving their jobs. Not only that, it also gave our team members an outlet to provide us with feedback. All in all, being included in the Best & Brightest Milwaukee companies to work for is an encouraging and enlightening experience and Brew City Marketing is so grateful to have been included.
