• The Kaiser Permanente Business Excellence Awards for 2018 performance were announced on April 4th, at the Silverthorne pavilion among cowboy hats, boots, vests, sparkles, bollo ties, and Dolly Parton hair. Brent Bowman VP of Kaiser Permanente and his co-host Scott Cowperthwaite of TV8 Summit, kept the program moving with their witty repartee and high energy.
