Management guru Morten Hansen to keynote United Fresh

Morten Hansen, a leading management authority, will set the stage for this year’s United Fresh Convention & Expo as keynote speaker during the United Fresh Breakfast General Session on June 11 at McCormick Place in Chicago IL.

Hansen’s Wall Street Journal bestseller “Great at Work” is based on a study of 5,000 employees, showing how top performers do less, work better and achieve more. All attendees at the general session will receive a copy of the bestseller.

Hansen also is the co-author with Jim Collins of the bestseller “Great by Choice” on how businesses can thrive in uncertainty. He also is the author of the acclaimed book “Collaboration” describing how managers can overcome silos in a company and create real value from working across the organization.

“Rarely have we had a chance to interact so directly with someone with the business and management insights that Morten brings,” said Greg Corrigan, senior drector of produce and floral at Raley’s Family of Fine Stores, and United Fresh 2019 convention committee chairman.

Hansen is professor of management at the University of California, Berkeley. He has a PhD from Stanford Business School, where he was a Fulbright scholar, is a former professor at Harvard, and was a senior manager at the Boston Consulting Group, where he advised corporate clients worldwide.

“United Fresh is seeking questions from industry members that they would like Hansen to specifically address for the produce industry,” said Tom Stenzel, United Fresh president and CEO. “I can’t wait for his address and interaction with our members.”

To join this session, attendees must have an All-Access Package for the United Fresh 2019 Convention & Expo. Attendees will enjoy three days of enhanced networking, B2B partner meetings, education and energy packed into Chicago’s McCormick Place Convention Center. The events will deliver value and access to the latest industry innovations.
