Back to all events Design a Thriving Startup Culture – How to Scale Your Business Successfully Host:
Event Details
It starts with the decision. The decision to build a purpose-driven startup. For over 17 years, Therése Gedda has supported thousands of founders, investors, startup– and fast-growing company executives in designing, re-designing and scaling companies where culture, strategy, and futuristic leadership enable transformative change. Therése has seen the good, the bad and the ugly of entrepreneurial journeys and has taken on the responsibility of being the champion of founders through executive coaching, business advisory,  and keynote speaking. Her extensive expertise on behavioral science and the High Achiever mindset pinpoints the importance of meaning, contribution, and purpose for High Achievers and for upcoming generations of High Potentials. The importance of designing and scaling a thriving culture has never been so critical in order to build an engaged, creative, and fast-growing startup.

A thriving culture is not something that just happens. It can be designed and designed well. Even if it’s easy to overlook the importance of culture for a startup, especially a young one, culture influences everything: How well the teams work together. How you engage with customers. How you celebrate your successes. How you share the rollercoaster with your teams. How you build your brand. How you develop your product or service and how you grow. 

Learn about Therése Gedda's Actionable Workplace Engagement and Recruit on Culture models to design a thriving culture. Explore how culture affects productivity, achievements, and growth. Learn how to lead, recruit, train, and measure on culture. Learn the key aspects of what drives engagement and how to keep your company creative, fast-moving, and innovative while growing. Being a leader of a futuristic, agile startup herself with a distributed team, Therése doesn’t only share the latest discoveries, she also brings actionable insights on how to operate and scale a thriving people-centric business.
