• 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.


    This year we set a world record for 147 nominees, and the ballroom was packed with hopeful businesses and fans. Despite some technical difficulties (yes again) we all had a super fun time.  Check out a great recap of the night from our friends at TV8 below:
