Austin TX 78758


Ann Rhoades has spent her career building people-centric organizations. She held the position of VP of the People Department for Southwest Airlines, Executive VP of Team Services for Promus Hotel Corporation and, most recently, the EVP of People for JetBlue Airways, where she currently remains as a board member as well as president of People Ink, her Human Resources consulting company. Ann’s book, Built on VALUES, was released in January 2011.

She will share her creative approach to developing unique cultures and her firsthand experiences in launching successful start-up companies, blending post-merger cultures and creating a legacy of people-centric organizations. A self-described “rule breaker,” Ann is adamant about standing up for what she believes in, regardless of the consequences. Her candor around the mistakes she’s made and the lessons she’s learned is the driving force behind her desire to inspire organizations to:
• Build sustainable cultures based on values unique to the environment
• Select and retain “A” players
• Treat employees fairly, not equally
• Deliver extraordinary customer-centric service levels
• Focus on the metrics!
• Move from just being a good organization to being a great values-centric one!!
