Event description

Description

For this session of our Centerstage Series, we are bringing together a diverse panel of experts in this field to strike a conversation around “People & Culture”.

Developing people and culture is something that’s severely underrated, but also very powerful. It’s all about putting employees first and giving them a sense of collectiveness and empowerment, which ultimately makes for a great work environment that directly benefits the company.

However, What does it really mean for you and your startup? How does it affect the growth of your business and why are companies emphasizing on this so much now? Come join us at this discussion!
