Do “givers” finish last in business? Not according to CRE.Converge 2018 keynote Adam Grant, Wharton professor and organizational psychologist, who will address 1,500+ conference attendees on Tuesday, Oct. 16, in Washington, D.C.

Based on a decade of research and consulting with Fortune 500 companies, Grant believes that the highest-performing organizations are the ones that embrace an ethos of knowledge-sharing, helping and mentoring.

In a dynamic address at commercial real estate’s premier event, Grant will outline ways to build a culture of productive generosity.
