When you want to learn a foreign language, the secret is to immerse, surrounding yourself with those who are already fluent, and others who are on the same journey as you.  People who understand where you are coming from, understand your struggles, and can keep you taking action.

As Simon Sinek says, it’s not about intensity – how long you do something in one hit – but consistency – how regularly you do something. You don’t get strong after going to the gym once for 9 hours, you get strong after going for 20 minutes each day, month after month.

It’s just like that with #CULTUREBites. An initial commitment to intensity is good – that’s our all day #CULTUREConnectives immersion – but what really moves the needle is ongoing regular immersion and access to all the support you need.  That is why #CULTUREBites exists.



Connecting successful leaders and culture change champions and influencers, and joining them in conversation.

You ask the questions you want answered, and have genuine conversations with leaders who are making a difference in their workplaces every day.  You get to co-create the discussion, and problem-solve in a safe space.



Your Culture: "How to be simply irresistible - turning the challenge of the Great Resignation into an opportunity for the Great Attraction."

The media has been pretty vocal on the topic of the “The great resignation” in recent months and it’s certainly true that many people are re-evaluating what they want, need and expect from their employers after the rollercoaster of the past two and a half years. 

What’s really going on? And what do we do about it? 

So this month, we as leaders, need to decide if we’re ready to make the most of an opportunity to create genuine change in our workplaces. In this wide-ranging conversation, we’ll be exploring how Telstra are approaching the challenge – and turning it into an opportunity.

#CULTUREBites is about you asking the questions you care about and having conversations with leaders who are making a difference in their workplaces every day, not simply sitting and listening to a speaker.   

So whilst our Conversation Leader will guide us through the session, you will co-create the discussion.
