Great Place To Work may sound like an unusual name for a company. I mean, it's bound to at least start some conversatinos if someone asks, "Where do you work?" and you respond with, "Great Place To Work..." - but perhaps that's the point! Great Place to Work (or GPTW) is a consulting company specializing in corporate culture and change management, and helps other companies become true to the moniker of a "great place to work." I had the pleasure of shooting their 2014 annual conference which was held at the Marriott City Center in downtown Shanghai.
Coming from a background in organizational culture (yes, I'm a photographer with an MBA, who is also currently getting his Ph.D. in Higher Education... go figure!) - it was both a great event to shoot, but also an interesting event to be able to listen in on througout the day. Leaders from top compaines in Greater China spoke and shared some of their lessons throughout the day. I was working with my team of videographers, Alexei and Michelle, who filmed the event - and true to the spirit of the conference and OB theory, it truly is all about the quality of people that you work WITH. What a fun team! We also set-up a media wall, and printed pictures of conference guests on site - a huge hit with events like these! All in all, a long day - but a great one indeed!
