In addition to creating a magical environment for Guests from around the world, Walt and Roy Disney mastered the art of business. They determined that leadership, service and employee engagement were key concepts that, when considered holistically, would lead to maximum results. Not only have these time-tested core concepts helped establish Disney as one of the world’s leading brands, but they have also helped thousands of organizations around the world think differently about how they can deliver the long-term results they are capable of delivering.

This is your opportunity to engage experienced Disney professionals and observe key examples from a “living laboratory,” taking you on stage and in areas Guests rarely see to explore firsthand how Disney business insights and time-tested methodologies are operationalized to deliver a great customer experience.
