August Turak

Author Consultant Speaker

Wisdom for the Ages

I recently joined a group of elite speakers at the WISDOM for Modern Workplaces Retreat in Santa Fe, New Mexico, October 3 - 4, 2017. It turned out to be an incredible landmark conference on workplace culture and wellbeing, and I met A plethora of wonderful, wonderful people.

It seemed as if each person I met was even more interesting than the last. I spent two whole days wishing I had more time to spend with the person I was currently talking to!

I think it is safe to say that my talk was well received since I sold every book I brought along as well as taking orders for 15 more.

I have lost count of how many conferences of this type I have attended in my life, and quite frankly I am less than impressed with most of them. This conference was an incredible exception.

I could not recommend it more, and whether I speak at WISDOM '18 or not I plan to be in Santa Fe, New Mexico July 31-August 1, 2018 for Thinking Ahead: Essential Elements for Great Workplace Cultures. I enthusiastically encourage you to begin making plans to join me there!

A Real Treat

This is yours truly with Patricia Aburdeen - one of my fellow speakers and a personal hero.

Patricia is the author of the blockbuster Megatrends 2010. I quote her all the time in my talks, and it was a huge honor to meet her at long last at the conference.

I bought Patricia's book and had her autograph it for Melissa Hawks, VP of Operations here at and also a huge Aburdeen fan.
