Learning from the best
From human resources to supply chain to greening, Walmart has a record that many organizations envy and want to learn from. Who better to tell this story than the former CEO whose team led the company through its unprecedented growth, Mario Pilozzi? This is a speech for organizations that want to sell, compete, emulate and differentiate by using insight from Walmart Canada’s success.
Changing the culture of an organization
After Walmart Canada bought Woolco, Pilozzi and his team turned that troubled discount chain into a powerhouse using the same management, locations and suppliers. “We did it by changing the culture of the organization” says Pilozzi.. With the new culture came a sense of responsibility, accountability, entrepreneurial spirit and a new focus. Pilozzi shares his teams’ experiences in implementing the culture change that made the difference.
Balancing Corporate Profits and Corporate Responsibility
Pilozzi provides an engaging talk on corporate responsibility from the point of view of a corporation. The audience will learn how decisions are made at the executive level; they will hear about how management balances its responsibility to society, shareholders, employees and suppliers. Using specific examples, Pilozzi shows how the company became involved in the Juno Beach Memorial and how the greening of Walmart affected the bottom line.
