Go Team! How To Create A Culture Of Success Where Great Work Thrives

This keynote provides leaders and managers with a checklist of how to create vibrant project, department or organisational cultures. Culture is still the number one contributing factor to organisational success and as Peter Drucker said, ‘Culture eats strategy for breakfast.’ Despite this, organisations don’t commit time or money to develop a vibrant culture, choosing instead to restructure or change the office layout in the hope of a quick fix. Drawing on his experience of helping organisations around the world to build vibrant cultures, Colin provides leaders and managers with the information and actions they need to start creating the right culture, right now.
