Since its start in 1962, Walmart has kept maintaining the core values imparted by founder Sam Walton as one of its top priorities.
Among the most fundamental of these core values is Sam’s dedication to servant leadership and the importance of business leaders listening to and supporting their partners and associates from the front— not from behind their desks.
Doing Business in Bentonville is hosting a roundtable webinar on August 18th at 1 PM Central, where DBB’s Executive Director Andy Wilson & WhyteSpyder founder Eric Howerton will cover:
Stories from Andy’s 25-year career at Walmart & working with Sam Walton
How to enact Sam’s leadership qualities into your professional career
The legacy of Sam Walton and how his leadership qualities carry on today at Walmart
ABOUT THE HOST: Andy's 25-year tenure with Walmart began in 1976 in their Store Manager Training Program.
