It is that time of year again as OTA's Chief Operating Officer, Gene Longobardi reminds us:
"Each year at this time we begin the frenzied an exciting activities to prepare for our annual International Conference. And every year, we start with the same thoughts: “I can’t believe how fast this year has gone by." And “How do we top last year?”
This will be our 14th conference and each one has been better, bigger, more impactful and more exciting than the previous year. Our theme this year, Relentless Commitment, reflects not only our brand promise focused on our employees, our students, and our franchises, but our way of life: the OTA WAY!
Relentless Commitment is our covenant to constantly improve our business, to remain focused on doing the right things in the right way, of treating each other and all of our students and prospects with respect and love, of interacting with the highest level of integrity and fairness, and to innovating vigorously for the benefit of all of our stakeholders, now and always.
We are excited to be together with you again this year as we celebrate major breakthroughs, educate ourselves on the latest business innovations, share the vision of our exciting future, and deepen our Relentless Commitment to each other and to our students. Ours is a high calling – to enrich the lives worldwide, what an amazing journey!"
