Dyn To Host 3rd Culture-Con Event

Manchester, NH (November 6, 2013) – Dyn, the worldwide leader in Internet performance solutions, announced today they will be hosting the third Culture-Con event in company history, a day focused on helping human resources professionals promote, share, and build a strong and lasting company culture in their workplaces.

It will be held on Wednesday, November 20th, at the company’s 60,000-square foot Manchester, New Hampshire, headquarters. Registration is now open, and the number of passes available is limited in order to maximize attendees’ experiences.

“Culture-Con is about gathering businesses of like minds to share ideas, create organizational synergies, and affect lasting change on the art of culture,” said Gray Chynoweth, Dyn Chief Operating Officer. “This event will be valuable for any company that’s looking to acquire the best talent, retain its sense of internal identity, and become a beacon within their industry.”

Dyn held its first such event in January 2012 after frequently being sought out for advice on how it built its own company culture, recognized nationally and regionally. Seeking to facilitate those discussions among more interested parties, the idea for Culture-Con was born and even expanded out to San Francisco, CA, in November 2012.

Announced speakers thus far:

  • Matt Rightmire, Managing Director at Borealis Ventures. Before Borealis, Matt began his Internet career in 1995 at Yahoo! when it was just a 10 person company, leaving as VP and General Manager of Media and Entertainment.
  • Itamar Goldminz, Director, KPI (Knowledge, Planning, Improvement) at Opower, a company thats culture has previously been featured in national publications like Fast Company.
  • John Smith, Chief Evangelist and Chief Product Owner at SPARC, LLC, has been a serial entrepreneur since he founded his first company, DunRite Consulting Company, at age 22. SPARC is the 14th fastest growing company in America, according to the Inc. 5000, with a 3-year growth rate of 12,863%.

“Culture-Con will give passionate professionals the tools and insight to figure out what their culture is and how to scale it alongside their company growth,” said Colleen Karpinsky, Dyn VP, Talent. “Every company doesn’t have to have a climbing wall or video games, but every company can build a great culture that supports both business goals and a healthy outlook on work-life balance.”
