Join the conversation with fellow culture change championsThird Wednesday of each month throughout 2021 and 2022 | 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 #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.
What’s the next topic?
Your culture: Are you sitting comfortably? Let me tell you a story …
One of the topics that keeps popping up is storytelling – one of the best ways to bring your culture to life, help your team envision and collectively go for your goals, and in doing so, exhibit the expected behaviours.
So for April’s #CULTUREBites we are going to talk about the power of storytelling and how Finder use it in their organisation by doing a deep dive with Jamie Finnegan from Finder.
How is Finder going about achieving their mission of changing the way the world makes decisions? How do they sustain their 30-50% growth year-on-year and how have they successfully scaled their business into the US, UK, Canada and kept their culture intact? How have they attracted and retained their diverse mix of creative, passionate, and innovative people?
And what is their high impact strategy and what are the key ingredients that have made the biggest difference, and how can we infuse some of that into our teams?
Join us and lend your insights to the conversation.
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.

THE SESSION DETAIL
Our Conversation Leader is Jamie Finnegan, Global Head of Talent at Finder
Our theme: “Your culture: Are you sitting comfortably? Let me tell you a story …”
Date: 21 April 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.
