Event Type

Kellie Garrett is a leadership expert who works with organizations to align business strategy, culture and leadership behaviours. The end goal? High employee engagement, which favourably impacts the customer experience.

Whether you’re in communications or HR, convincing management that their behaviours matter more than your wonderful strategies is a tough sell. Actions speak louder than words. Leadership actions – and inaction – make or break culture initiatives and boost or erode employee engagement.

Kellie will share best practices and practical examples on how to define, build and embed a great culture in your organization.

This talk is presented at the Strategic Communication Management Professional (SCMP) certification level: For highly skilled business communicators practiced in providing strategic communication advice and counseling to an organization’s leadership. But, communicators at all stages are welcome! See who else is going.
