Culture in the Boardroom and Leadership

While the COVID-19 pandemic challenges the way we live and work the opportunities for businesses to emerge as cultural leaders and gain employee trust are abundant.

This is a time when businesses must show leadership, resilience and work to the best interests of not only the company and its people, but society. For without a thriving society, we do not have a foundation on which to flourish.

We currently have a unique opportunity to create long term change and drive the positive behaviours required to meet the existing challenge and future challenges our businesses and people will face.

In this webinar we will discuss the role of leadership and culture in the recovery from COVID-19, and how we can play a critical role in rebuilding our society from within our companies.
