INNOVATION WORKSHOP & IDEATION TOOLKIT - $2,000

The funeral profession serves a wide variety of families. While tradition will always be a part of the profession, firms need to embrace innovation to appeal to the new generations of families they serve. As the sponsor of this unique workshop, your company will receive benefits at not only the Leadership Summit, but in subsequent Innovation Workshop material and resources developed and shared with OGR members after the event.

Benefits for this sponsorship will start at a two-hour, interactive session during the 2021 Leadership Summit in September. With the help of a professional facilitator, participants will break into groups to discuss, imagine and conceptualize four key areas of funeral service from an innovative lens. The groups will then come together to share their findings and vision with the greater group for additional fine tuning. Information gleaned from the Workshop will be shared to OGR’s entire membership (not just Summit attendees) and utilized for additional interactive, virtual discussions.
