Our Speaker:
Patti Cuthill is the VP of HR at NextLevel Internet, President of SD SHRM, and an instructor at UCSD Extended Studies, teaching "Designing Exceptional Organizational Cultures". Patti is a servant leader and coach who exhibits joy, empathy, compassion, and character in all aspects of her life. Her goal is to encourage people to grow and become healthier, wiser, freer, more autonomous, and more likely to serve others inside and outside the workplace. Patti's desire is to forge pathways that foster diversity and drive for purpose, so that the children of today will have an opportunity to experience meaningful work from anywhere that is better for people, better for business, and better for the world. Patti was nominated for "HR Executive of the Year" in 2022 for SD HR Forum.
One of Patti's favorite quotes is timely for our new year: “I would rather flirt with failure than never dance with my Joy.” Wes Moore
