Sample talk:
Crucial Keys to a Thriving Business Culture
Studies consistently show that when companies and their people feel connected with each other and a larger purpose, both are more likely to succeed and thrive. This presentation provides three keys to a strong business culture and provide ways to bring these attributes to our businesses, rather large or small or in-between, and to each of us as individuals.
Crucial Keys include:
Engage:     Encourage interaction, connection, and personal support between and at all levels
Innovate:  Create opportunities for creativity and trend spotting

Transform:   Increase mindfulness, consciousness and self-awareness
An articulated business culture gives a clear path to mutually beneficial understandings on day-to-day interactions. This results in happy people, lower turn-over rates, and higher productivity, profit and sustainability. By having a clear vision of “how we do things,” we can more effectively bridge and overcome differences at all levels and connect at deeper levels.
Let’s each increase our effectiveness in creating successful businesses that support each other and positively impact our world.

"I have had the pleasure of working with Carrie Vanston over the course of several years. Carrie gave a great presentation at the World Affairs Council about the importance of creating and growing business cultures that encourage engagement and innovation. The audience was inspired with examples and ideas to bring back to their offices for their own development. I recommend Carrie to other organizations looking to create and grow strong, connected organizations."
