Corporate Culture 2018: From Engagement, to Experience to Execution

Monday January 29 - Tuesday January 30 2018 InterContinental Toronto Centre Toronto, Ontario

Conference Overview

Business leaders know—culture is the key to success. This is the one event in Canada that gets to the heart of the matter.

As recently as 10 years ago many leaders would have dismissed culture as a “soft” issue that was barely on their radar. Today, things are very different and for many organizations, large and small, public and private, culture is at the top of the agenda.

This event is the only one of its kind in Canada—an in-depth conference featuring practitioners from a range of industries sharing their real-life experiences into how to create great cultures that support the business. This event features genuine thought leaders who will inspire you to expand your thinking about culture and see new possibilities for your organization.

Employee engagement isn’t enough

While high employee engagement is a key factor in creating a great culture, too many organizations stop there. Success comes to those who create great employee experiences to build on shared values aligned with the strategy. This results in improved customer experience, higher performance, increased innovation and better results.

It’s not what keeps you up at nightit’s what makes you want to jump out of bed in the morning

Once you get the basics—aligning the values and determining the alignment of your culture and strategy—then you need to ensure you create a great employee experience. This speaks to your people processes, the physical environment, your diversity and inclusion initiatives, and your wellness interventions. The list goes on.

This event will feature a wide range of organizations who are succeeding through creating great employee experiences. Because if your employees aren’t enthusiastic about their work, they won’t be able to deliver for your customers.

Because great cultures don’t just happenthey have to be cultivated

We designed this event because we believe, that organizations benefit from a conscious focus on culture. This is true for startups as they grow larger and fear losing some of the spark that led to their rapid growth. But it is also true for larger established organizations. The learnings can be applied whether you are looking to change your culture or build on an existing one.

Learn the essentials of how to build and sustain a culture that is right for your organization

That’s why at this event you will hear about real cultures at real organizations and how they have contributed to success in different dimensions. You will hear about cultures that:

  • are focused on innovation
  • put customer experience at the centre of everything they do
  • value and support high performance
  • use mindfulness and compassion to create healthy productive workplaces
  • raise awareness of cyber security issues to enhance privacy and prevent data loss and theft
  • embrace change and are well prepared for digital transformation
  • create and support transparent authentic leadership
  • embrace and learn from failure
