Supercharging Your Culture at Work

With Annie Simpson, Co-Founder and Chief Consulting Officer of Modern People

In the new world of work, our passions, talents and what brings us fulfilment are blended into our roles and celebrated in our cultures. In this Humming Session, you’ll learn how to supercharge your culture by inviting your people to bring their passions to work. We’ll share frameworks that marry the commercial and heart-felt, and share stories of values-led companies that do this every day.

Session outcomes include:

  • Learn how and why personal passions matter at work
  • Gain practices to combine your people’s roles and passions
  • Apply common principles for piloting new cultural practices

Hosted by Annie Simpson, Co-Founder and Chief Consulting Officer of Modern People. She works with key decision-makers to bridge the gap between profit and purpose, ushering in a new era of Purposeful cultures and leaders. There is an opportunity for business to move beyond the traditionally transactional culture of employee and workplace. Modern People was founded in 2019 with the purpose of humanising the new world of work. Annie and her team connect businesses to a new way of thinking and working, combining science, strategy and philosophy.
