Sustainability for Breakfast presents "Forging Business Culture"

Connectivity, job automation and the intensifying search for more meaningful consumerism are driving the emergence of what Trendwatching calls “glass box brands”. Any of you who are on social media will understand what this means – there is no longer a dividing line between internal and external communications when it comes to your brand. What your employees experience, your customer also experiences, immediately, through social media, so it’s more important than ever to actively create your culture. 

Employee Engagement has fast become the most pivotal business issue of our time. With over 3/4 of employees operating at various levels of disengagement nationally, there will be two types of leaders in the coming decade; those who learn how to engage their employees and those whose businesses will simply fail. 

Shane Wallace, CEO of Culturesmith Inc., will share how to intentionally forge a business culture that will attract and keep customers and employees who share your values, so that you can grow your business.

About Shane Wallace:

Shane works with Entrepreneurs and C-suite Executives of rapidly scaling enterprises to craft the type bulletproof Corporate Cultures needed to inspire their people to bring forth more discretionary effort daily. 

As a Speaker he is driven to educate Leaders as to the size and scope of the Engagement Epidemic, and inspire them to take action by providing real, tangible strategies that they can implement with minimal cost and effort.  

As a Thought Leader, his aim is to add shape to the concepts of Culture and Engagement, to pull them from the ether and provide a set of tools you can use to create meaningful, rewarding and sustainable businesses.
