Bringing Tools of Hope and Peace to Transform Lives

(Evansville, Ind.) EXTEND GROUP, Evansville-based experts at guiding the transformation of organizations into magnets for employee growth, announced today that a foremost champion of employee development is coming to Evansville.

“We are delighted to sponsor appearances here in our hometown by Jeremie Kubicek,” says Shawn Collins, Founder of EXTEND GROUP. “In the wake of an extraordinary exodus of people from the workforce, building the strength of human capital in our region has never been more urgent. Jeremie brings the best in how to develop people and grow healthier organizations.”

As Chairman of Giant Worldwide and CEO of Giant TV, Kubicek has built an international network of experts around bold, new thinking to attract and retain employees. He has made it his mission to provide the tools leaders can use to elevate people and transform their lives.

“In light of the last several years, I see that people are yearning for two specific things—hope and peace,” says Kubicek. “As leaders, we can’t give away something we don’t possess ourselves. I want to give people these practical tools, so they in turn can unlock the potential of people they lead.”

The public will have three opportunities to hear Kubicek during his 24 hours in Evansville. On September 12, he will appear at Ivy Tech Community College’s Banterra Bank School of Business Lecture Series starting at 6 pm. On September 13, he joins @530 on Main, a podcast hosted by Collins along with Mike Davis, VPS Architecture (8 am). The event will stream live via Youtube. Kubicek concludes his visit as the featured speaker at a luncheon of the Rotary Club of Evansville (11:30 am).

“I’m excited to bring peace and hope to Evansville,” says Kubicek. “These tools will free your employees to find the fulfillment that every person deserves. I’ll show you how to use them.”


While tradition holds that key performance indicators offer the best measure of an organization’s health, EXTEND GROUP is among a growing number of firms dissatisfied by the inability of traditional metrics to predict long-term success. In fact, an organization’s focus on KPIs too often comes at the expense of its people, who endure long hours, burn out and, ultimately, abandon the mission. As an antidote, EXTEND GROUP provides a human-centric approach for ensuring an organization’s health over the long run: Retention = Attraction™. This system focuses on the well-being of individuals to create a culture where people commit wholeheartedly to the organization’s mission and draw others to it as well.
