Join the conversation with fellow culture change championsThird Wednesday of each month throughout 2020 and 2021 | Sydney
Connecting successful leaders, and culture change champions, and joining them in Conversation. You ask the questions you care about, and have conversations with leaders who are making a difference in their workplaces every day. You get to co-create the discussion.
What is different about #CULTUREBites
When you want to learn a foreign language, the secret is to immerse yourself, surrounding yourself with those who are already fluent, and others who are on the same journey as you, 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 #CULTURE immersion – but what really moves the needle is ongoing regular immersion and access to all the support you need.
What’s the next topic?
“Your Culture of Flexibility: How to flex and flow without getting bent out of shape – lessons for the ‘Rona era“
2020 has challenged us all like few others, and 2021 looks set to continue in the same vein, at least for a while. And over this time, we’ve definitely proved ourselves flexible – but how do we keep up that level of responsiveness without getting bent out of shape?
Is maintaining a 2020 level of flexibility healthy – and is it necessary?
With 12 months’ experience of the ‘Rona era under our belts, we’ll delve into:
- what flexibility looks like for leaders and their teams
- how the need for flexibility continues to shape the now and the future of how we work, and ultimately the culture of our organisations
- how we can embrace the best of the learnings – keeping the bits we need and dumping those we don’t
- how we can set ourselves up to flex and flow with the ever-changing work- and life-scape – and do so in a way that doesn’t see us exhausted again by year-end, so we can start and end the year in the best possible shape.
Look who’s leading the conversation
#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.
Steve Milnes, Head of Change Management at QBE
After 30 years in the workforce, Steve Milnes has gathered a wealth of experience, most recently as the Head of Change Management at QBE. There he leads a team of people-focused professionals delivering for all employees and customers. An authentic people leader focused on the development and growth of his team and those in the wider company, Steve also highly values his personal life. He’s a father of four and a grandfather of another four and believes life experience is of most value – and that 2020 delivered more than enough additional material to build on and work with.

THE SESSION DETAILS
Our Conversation Leader STEVE MILNES will lead the conversation on:
“Your Culture of Flexibility: How to flex and flow without getting bent out of shape – lessons for the ‘Rona era”
Date: 24 February 2021
Time: 12 noon to 2pm (Sydney time)
Entry: Only members or prepaid guests can join the session
** GUEST INVESTMENT REDUCED
WHILST WE ARE VIRTUAL **
A lot of people have already secured their #CULTUREBites membership. It’s where we bring together a community of successful professionals and culture mavericks, and connect them in conversation.
And I’ll be honest, it’s not for everyone.
It’s only for people who want to make a real difference, develop their own leadership, learn from those doing it, and positively impact their workplaces. On the 3rd Wednesday of each month, over two hours, we have a different conversation leader, sharing the highs and lows and everything in between.
And most of those who have joined know me. They have seen me in action. They know the quality of what they are getting. That this is not just another event, not just another lunch, not just another networking session … they know it’s a space where they get to have deep conversations about things that matter, with people who they normally wouldn’t get time with. It’s different.
So, you might think that’s something you’d like to join straight away (and we’d love to have you). But if you’d prefer just to come along for one of the lunches first, to try it out … well here’s the sign up form for you to do just that.
You might love it, and want more. And if you don’t … well, you’ll have had a nice lunch and a really interesting conversation with our culture mavericks, and the other leaders in the room.
To join us on a casual basis, it’s $120 plus GST ($132 inclusive of GST $40 plus GST ($44 inclusive of GST). If you’ve got a coupon code, pop it in the box and the amount will reduce at the checkout.
I look forward to seeing you there.
