As always with #TheCultureFactor:

Interactive sessions

Keynote speeches

Enlightening talks

Case studies

Recent research shows that there is a clear shift in expectations between what managers decide is good for the organisation and what employees want. This conference and its keynotes will give you the answers with regards to many questions impacted by #TheCultureFactor such as:

Do I need to change my corporate culture to attract a younger workforce?
How does culture influence the success rate of our DEI initiatives?
When moving from start-up into scale-up, how do we know which cultural drivers to focus on?
How does culture influence B2B and B2C marketing?

Keynote speakers from a.o. Britannia, Manipal Groups, 3I Infotech, Cordence Worldwide and Hofstede Insights will share their insights, practices and experiences on how to leverage culture and cultural metrics.
