Meeting and Greeting

In Our Community


Lynn Parman, President & CEO of the American Royal, walked FEI members through the KC institution’s experiences implementing the Disney Model for building lasting customer relationships. “It all begins with your purpose,” Parman said on Nov. 13. The Royal’s purpose is all about educating young people in ways that “inspire and cultivate dreams.” She said Disney principles help the Royal design themes that permeate every aspect of the experience, with end-to-end attention to detail. Purposeful planning adds up – at the American Royal as well as at Disney theme parks – to “magic moments” that create emotional connections lasting a lifetime.
