About the Webinar

We’re all in this together! That’s what we keep saying and hearing, but how do we
actually bring this motto to life while we are all so far away from each other? If you’ve
been wondering how to engage your team and build culture during these lockdowns,
you’re definitely not alone.

Our webinar will arm you with tried and tested methods that successful leaders use
daily to engage their teams, keep spirits and motivation high, and cultivate an
enviable corporate culture.

Leader, philanthropist and entrepreneur, Ben Wise from Google will guide you
through his successful methods and how they have impacted his team and company
during these unprecedented times.

  • Understand that there is not a ‘one size fits all’ approach to leading
  • Learn how to give your team the same experience through their screens as you would in person
  • Understand how to give your team the confidence required to properly manage their time while working from home
  • Understand how to empower your team and build lasting and impactful bonds that enrich everyone’s work experience
