Robert Denholm House, Bletchingley Rd,
Nutfield RH1 4HW
Throughout our business & personal lives, consciously & unconsciously, we make “selection” decisions.
What to buy, who to work for, who to choose as supplier, friend or associate.
Business looks to the future to plan. But what if the future is already here & you missed it!
People are increasingly selective & choosing to deal with businesses that embody “Purpose” as well as profit. Businesses that have a Culture & values with which they can identify.
Why attend this event?
- Meet & hear from successful companies that have used Purpose & Culture to address business issues, aims & objectives
- Find out how adopting a purposeful Culture can help recruit, retain & develop talent
- How your Culture can help mitigate the pain of change, transition & transformation
- How changing your culture can beneficially affect your profit
- An opportunity to question our speakers about “Purpose & Culture” as growth drivers & how they could assist in addressing your business issues
