Change Comes From Within


Hey there!  I’m Hung Pham and I founded Culture Summit in 2014 to solve my own problems with disengagement.  You see, I’ve never worked in HR or organizational development before.  I started my career as an engineer.

My passion for culture comes from my experience as a disengaged employee.  Looking for a solution, I noticed all the conferences targeted executives and focused on a top-down approach.  Instead, I wanted a conference that approached building culture from the bottom up; the employee level.

Rather than wait for change, I decided to become that change.  I’m not an expert by any means, but collectively I believe we can all transform culture and help employees build the culture they want to work in.  If this sounds like you, then join our community! 

Inspire and Empower 24/7


Hi, I’m Vanessa Shaw, and I’ve spent the last 15 years of my career working on culture.  As you can see, Hung and I chose different career paths, but we both came to the same conclusion; culture is something we can all take ownership of, and everyone deserves to have a workplace experience they love.

Throughout my career, whether it’s delivering a workshop, guiding a team through culture change, or presenting as a keynote, my goal is always the same; to inspire you to take action.  Building Culture Summit is how we are taking action, and our goal is to inspire and empower you to do the same.

We can’t wait to meet you!
