Stay and PlayWednesday, June 17 – Thursday, June 18
Crystal Springs ResortSussex County, NJ
Stay and Play
$225 per person (two people in a room) – includes overnight stay at the Minerals Hotel, Golf on Wednesday, June 17, on the Wild Turkey Golf Course – tee times approximately between 1:30 – 2:30 p.m., Golf on Thursday, June 18, on the Black Bear Golf Course – tee times approximately between 8:00 – 8:30 a.m. Single Occupancy rate - $320
With its debut on July 7, 2001, Wild Turkey became the Crystal Spring Resort’s second Roger Rulewich design -- an outstanding encore to Rulewich’s award-winning Ballyowen. Located adjacent to Crystal Springs Golf Club, Wild Turkey’s topography is best described as “basin & ridge”. The layout’s two distinct terrain types combine the sheer expansiveness of Ballyowen with the rugged, multi-elevated nature of Crystal Springs. While it may be easy to classify Wild Turkey as a combination of its two sister courses, Wild Turkey stands on its own merit as a uniquely designed golf course, named one of NJ's Top New Public Courses by NJGCOA.
Black Bear opened in July of 1996 and has enjoyed tremendous popularity ever since. Boasting a 6,673-yard layout co-designed by famed developer Jack Kurlander, Black Bear offers you an inviting diversity of terrain, scenery, and shot selections.
Stay and Spa
$235 per person (two people in a room) – includes overnight stay at the Minerals Hotel, $125 Spa Resort Gift Card
It’s time to rethink your spa escape. Whether you’re looking for a romantic rendezvous or are in need of a break with your besties, a Spa & Stay at Crystal Springs is the ultimate way to relax – mind, body and soul.
Room prices are based on two people per room. Single rooms require additional fees. Meals are not included. Check-in is 4:00 p.m. and checkout time is 11:00 a.m. Event is held rain or shine

Throughout my career I have been asked to define an organization's workplace culture on several occasions so as to better understand the intricacies of why the culture exists the way that it does. The theory here is that culture defines success and success is the metric of a working culture. I have come to the conclusion that culture, as a whole, is impossible to define and, in addition, should not be defined in a traditional sense. This is because to define a work environment's culture is to inevitably leave members of the organization left out. We work in the most dynamic and diverse environments in history. Still, culture and having “good corporate culture” is important to business growth and development.
Culture can be viewed through three unique lenses, corporate culture, also known as dominant culture, orthogonal culture or a culture that is non-confrontational to the previous, and the feared counterculture. But how are these seen in our business and how do we properly integrate each?
Through this presentation we will examine what is the new definition of workplace culture and look at models that work to not only define, but integrate a culture that works for everyone, all generations, all skillsets, and all ambition levels.
