Disney Key to Excellence Disney Keys to Excellence
February 2, 2010  |  Pittsburgh, PA

WITI Welcomes the Disney Institute to Pittsburgh on February 2, 2010

Please mark your calendars! In order to accommodate the interests of the broader Pittsburgh business community, we are rescheduling our Disney Keys To Excellence one-day event from December 2, 2009 to February 2, 2010. We apologize in advance for any inconvenience caused by this date change.

It doesn't take any training to recognize that the world's economy has taken a significant downturn. It does take effective and proven professional development training to guide impacted organizations back to the summit.

A one-day local workshop, the Disney Keys to Excellence program is a rare and affordable opportunity to learn best business practices from Disney insiders. Organizations from across the nation have learned proven philosophies and implemented effective processes to reap the rewards of improvements in leadership, management, service, and brand loyalty.

IMPORTANT: Please use promotional code WITIMNE to receive $50 OFF PER GUEST when registering.

No prerequisite training required.
