Our Panelists:

Tom Frank

We are honored to have had Tom Frank join us with his constant words of wisdom, including: “Just imagine how amazing it would be if everyone in your company worked with the same values, beliefs and aspirations.”

Tom Frank’s culture engineering work turned this concept into a reality. He always brought to companies, particularly restaurant groups, the same cultural engineering work he had delivered to the many organizations (70+) he founded and led. Across the country, he helped leaders turn their culture to one of caring, while creating meaningful, pointed and actionable solutions for them.

One highlight of many includes the remarkable culture he created for P.F.Chang’s China Bistro, as one of its original founders and Director of Training for more than 13 years.

In recent years, Tom delivered  ‘Culture Alignment Workshops’ and built dynamic Culture Alignment Platforms for his clients. His favorite and most requested topics for the workplace were around “Building a Bridge Between Culture and Technology,” as well as  “Managing Through Your Values and Beliefs.”

[Updated] Even until his passing (Summer 2021), Tom continued to show his remarkable, human leadership and remained on the cutting edge of talent development, service training and, most of all,  his beloved culture of caring.

Tom was a graduate of University of Arizona.
