ORLANDO, FL (January 27, 2021) – This year’s Marine Industry Culture Summit, presented by Correct Craft will host as its keynote speaker Dee Ann Turner. The two-time bestselling author and 33-year veteran at Chick-fil-A will speak on the secret recipe for a remarkable culture.

Selected as the company’s first female officer in 2001, Turner was instrumental in building and growing Chick-fil-A’s well-known culture and talent systems and worked closely with Chick-fil-A’s founder, S. Truett Cathy. Turner was responsible for thousands of selections of Chick-fil-A franchisees and corporate staff members and led talent management, staff learning and development, diversity and inclusion, culture and engagement. Most recently, Turner launched and led the sustainability function focusing on Chick-fil-A’s strategy to implement sustainable practices at the then $10.5 billion company. Today, her successful books It’s My Pleasure: The Impact of Extraordinary Talent and a Compelling Culture and Bet on Talent: How to Create a Remarkable Culture and Win the Hearts of Customers are sold globally.

Bill Yeargin, CEO of Correct Craft stated, “There could not have been a better addition to our Marine Culture Summit than having Dee Ann Turner as our keynote speaker this year. She understands the importance of culture and has implemented cultures that have a positive impact throughout her career.”

Yeargin added, “We are excited about this year’s Marine Culture Summit. In the first few hours after we announced it we received three times the number of registrations as we had last year. We expect this to be a very impactful afternoon that will make the marine industry better. We are excited to be able to present this opportunity to our friends in our industry.”

Those who drive organizational culture are invited to register and learn how to communicate values to employees and stakeholders, and what to do to ensure your organization is operating at its fullest potential.

The summit will conclude with a panel discussion with Bill Yeargin, Duane Kuck, CEO of Regal Boats, and Kris Carroll, President of Grady White on culture and how the events of the pandemic have shaped their organizations.
