EFFINGHAM — The banquet hall at the Thelma Keller Convention Center was packed Friday morning for the Vision 2020 Celebration of Community Excellence Breakfast that featured Heartland Dental’s Dr. Rick Workman DMD as the keynote speaker. Dr. Workman focused on passing the torch to next generation of entrepreneurs by giving advice that he wished he had starting out. Many students in the CEO program were present at the breakfast.
“Hard work with a vision and a purpose over a long period of time in this great country can allow anything to happen.” Dr. Workman said. “Don’t ever let somebody a thousand miles away tell you it can’t be done.”
Dr. Workman also spoke to the importance a having a great workplace culture and went as far as to say that incredible culture “can often time trump mediocre strategy.” It’s also important to find the right people to work with who are expert problem solvers.
