PAST #CULTUREConnectives 

 

Helping successful leaders create great places to work

 

 

Our #CULTUREConnective all-day immersions are a collaborative and immersive experience focused on the unique facets of creating a stand-out company culture for your team and your business.   An intimate round table think-tank style environment equips you with the tools to redefine and transform your own unique company culture, and create change-ready and change-resilient teams who thrive in your culture.
And that means you can attune your business to deliver improved and sustainable business outcomes.

 

What’s your experience?

You will sit at the table and engage in conversation exclusively with CEOs and leaders who embrace an innovative approach, and who are committed to creating change through creating stand out company cultures; leaders delivering lasting results. This is your opportunity to collaborate, network and engage, and make the change you’ve been seeking.

On the day you will immerse, collaborate and learn, so you too can realise solid bottom line growth.

It’s time to learn what others are doing to:

  1. stop silo mentality; create “one team”, increasing engagement and teamwork
  2. stop reactive problem-solving and decision-making; develop team initiative, and proactivity
  3. stop revolving door recruitment; adopt culturally-aligned recruitment and retention, and develop employer brand equity
  4. stop drowning in bureaucracy; optimise culture-lead systems to work for the people and the business

Chris Low
Chris Low

Head of Vibe, Canva

TOPIC: Did you drop something?  How to go from start-up to scale up and beyond, and take your your culture with you 

Chris is Head of Vibe at Canva, the online design platform with over 15 million users (and one of the most exciting startups in Australia.  Unicorn anyone?).

He leads the teams focusing on creating incredible experiences and taking their values off the wall and into the workplace with innovative experiences.

Canva has an incredible culture, built on the values of Be a Force for Good, Empower Others, Pursue Excellence, Be a Good Human, Make Complex Things Simple and Set Crazy Big Goals.

Chris shared with us how they have built Canva around their culture, from start-up to the company with a $1b valuation that it is today, and will lead the discussion about how we can grow our businesses without leaving our cultures behind.

Jeremy Dean
Jeremy Dean

Founder, elephants&riders

TOPIC: It’s not just what you do; it’s how you make them feel

Creator of a number of innovative hands-on tools including the Emotional Culture Deck and the CX Deck, Jeremy is passionate about improving human-to-human relationships and lives, living by the philosophy – if your people aren’t engaged, your customers won’t be engaged.  

He’s on a mission to help people see that you can design and build your culture by starting with how you want your people to feel – and not feel at work – and then designing rituals, conversations, and structures that in turn shape your culture and brand.

Jeremy shared what he knows about bringing emotion back into the workplace, why it’s so important, and how to create a more empathetic culture as a result.

Josh Ross
Josh Ross

Co-Founder, Humanitix

TOPIC: Creating a purposeful company

Josh co-founded Humanitix at the end of 2015, the worlds first not-for-profit social enterprises disrupting the ticketing industry by transforming ‘wasted’ booking fees into sustainable funding for indigenous scholarships, meals for school children, and literacy programs for young girls.

Humanitix has quickly established itself as one of Australia’s most innovative charities, having recently won the NSW Premiers Award, and in 2018 being awarded Social Entrepreneurs of the Year in Australia. Humanitix is now funded by the foundations of Google & Atlassian, and has scaled across Australia and New Zealand.

Josh sharedhis thoughts on how to infuse purpose into every role within the organisation and engage team members to deliver their best – even when what they are doing can seem a long way away from the company’s lofty purpose.

Jeremy Dean

Founder, elephants&riders

The Emotional Culture Deck Taster Workshop

The Emotional Culture Deck was designed to fulfil a simple, but critical, shortcoming in many organisations.

Most organisations and leaders don’t pay enough attention to how employees are or should be feeling. They underestimate how central emotions are to building the right culture and employee experience.

So riders&elephants designed and developed the deck over two years with dozens of organisations around the word to solve this problem.

We played with the deck in a shortened version of the Emotional Culture Deck Masterclass that Jeremy is currently delivering around the world, to understand who we can use it with our teams to guide our check-ins, design our employee engagement, and achieve even better results.
