"Organisational culture is one of those topics that is often spoken about but rarely leveraged effectively. What I value the most about Georgia's approach is that it is grounded in research and incredibly practical - for both business owners and employees. When Georgia speaks about culture, across the room you can see heads nodding and shoulders relaxing as participants become deeply engaged in the content. Georgia uses her deep knowledge and experience to make organisational culture strategies relatable and actionable for businesses of any size.“
