vivowire22 – Stan Slap’s Secrets to Building a World-Class Company Culture
We hosted our flagship global future of work event, vivowire22, on March 9th – two years after the biggest shift in our workplace in living memory.
The event, which saw 2000+ forward-thinking executives across HR and internal communications come together, featured global experts from industry and academia including Stanford University, Slack, and Sifted to reflect on what’s working at work – and what’s not.
In our keynote talk of the day, Workvivo’s Employee Experience Officer, Gillian French, hosted the fantastic Stan Slap in an engaging (and emotional) discussion on Stan’s ‘Secrets to Building a World-Class Company Culture’.
