WANT TO SPEAK AT THE NEXT CULTURE SUMMIT?
We are excited to announce the call for speakers for Culture Summit 2024!
THE CALL FOR PAPERS SUBMISSION DEADLINE FOR THIS YEAR’S SUMMIT IS FEBRUARY 2, 2024
Last year, culture transformation leaders told us they want to go even deeper into topics that help them navigate the ever-changing cultural landscape. For 2024, our conference theme is “Evolve – creating playbooks for the new world of work.”
Together, we’ll explore forward-thinking strategies, playbooks, and transformative insights that empower organizations to adapt, thrive, and shape a resilient culture in a new work and company culture era. Culture Summit 2024 is your guide to crafting scalable culture playbooks that help organizations continually adapt and evolve to support the needs of the modern workplace.
If you shape and foster cultural practices at organizations, have led culture transformation with an innovative approach, or have a success story and valuable insights to share with our community, we would love to hear from you!
We encourage speakers from all backgrounds and experiences to contribute to our collective conference. Diverse perspectives help enhance the quality of discussions and ensure a comprehensive and inclusive exploration of all of our conference themes.
*Due to the high volume of submissions we receive and the limited number of speaking slots, we’re unable to reply to everyone. However, please know that we do read every submission.
In a world of constant change, relevance is key. For 2024, we are seeking speakers who can address our conference theme and subtopics, and find ways to make their talks interactive and engaging through:
- Keynote presentations
