Past events

Each WBD event is deliberate. A specific topic, often one raised at a previous event or through online discourse, is brought forward and analysed by experts and attendees as teams and individuals.

A visual report is compiled at the end of each, so that the knowledge shared and the wisdom uncovered can act as a resource to ourselves and others. Those documents, along with the details of the events, are stored here.

The Intersection of
Psychology and Neuroscience, with Mike Mears.

Work Better Day is an experience-driven program where experts, researchers, and every-day heroes share their stories, inspire ideas in others, and influence the conversation around what it means to work better and provide an atmosphere that will foster engagement and learning, but also one where attendees can walk away with the ability to impact others within their organizations.

Alicia Korten

Head of The Culture Company and award-winning author

Alicia helps clients (like the Ford Foundation, the International Monetary Fund, and the United Nations) achieve growth turn arounds, as well as "best place to work" awards.

As a young adult, Alicia took a life-changing trip to Panama’s Darien Gap, where she witnessed the meetings the Emberá and Wounaan tribes were holding to write a constitution for the governance of their semi-autonomous lands. Inspired, she worked with them for seven years. Returning to the U.S., she drew on what she had learned about building tribes to shape highly engaged purpose-driven workforce cultures.
