Speaker: John Grant
In his latest book "Better", John Grant explores how the ‘better’ idea took hold first in ‘free range’ workplaces; with their natural, human-centred architecture and processes, flexible working, mindfulness classes. He looks at the evidence that these changes produce better work. And he explores how ‘better’ as an ethos has seeped from workplace culture into the strategy, products, transparency, community and purpose of leading companies like Unilever.
In this workshop, John will bring insights, provocation and fascinating facts to the table. And there will be plenty of opportunity to interact, share experiences and thoughts. You will be inspired by this amazing trend, for yourself, your agency and your clients.
We invite you to invite your clients and register them at ACC member price of 195€. The workshop is also open to non-members at 295€.
There will be 20 hardback copies of "Better" for the first 20 subscribers.
Drinks, snacks and a light sandwich lunch are foreseen.
