Correct Craft announced that its Marine Industry Culture Summit, held virtually last week in Orlando, Fla., is available to stream.

This year’s two-hour, online summit drew an estimated 600 registrants. Last year, about 40 industry leaders participated in a two-day gathering in Orlando, Fla., to discuss the importance of culture in an organization.

Correct Craft president and CEO Bill Yeargin opened the event by discussing last year’s summit and sharing his thoughts on creating a culture mindset, citing examples from Correct Craft.

A keynote presentation by Dee Ann Turner, who is a former Chick-Fil-A executive and an author, shared stories of culture in organizations. Shirley Adams of Correct Craft discussed how Correct Craft University develops employees.

The summit wrapped up with a panel discussion on culture, moderated by Yeargin, with Kris Carroll, president of Grady-White Boats; Duane Kuck, president and CEO of Regal Boats; and Paul Singer, president of Centurion and Supreme, which are Correct Craft brands.

“It is great to see our industry put an emphasis on culture,” Yeargin said. “I learned so much from all our speakers and have added new books to my reading list. Investing in culture has huge returns to an organization. We appreciate all who attended this summit with us and invested time in being a learner.”
