The workplace is changing, and with it,
the way we think about work culture.
Watch the recording from Aug 2023 hosted by Blinkist: The Future of Work: Building a Culture Where Everyone Thrives
Tune in to hear Wendy Gates Corbett, Alex Hirst, and I discuss how psychological safety and belonging are key elements to the future of work, and what you can do to improve your work culture. This panel, moderated by the wonderful Emily DiLaura, shares their expertise and explores how these factors help organizations create a more flexible and authentic workplace, and support the growth and development of their people.

And now, unpaid commentary on Blinkist
Blinkist is a subscription to key ideas from nonfiction for powerful ideas a few minutes at a time.
What they say: Almost none of us have the time to read everything we’d like to read. Yet we lose countless hours to activities that bring us little joy such as commuting, chores and staring at our phones. What if we could turn these little blocks of unallocated time into precious and rewarding moments for learning and reflection?
My experience: After meeting Blinkist as a conference vendor, I received a free trial for access. And although their salesfolk were wonderful, I had low expectations for actually using their product. I love reading and have tried other book summary products, audio book platforms, etc. but never quite stuck with one. Blinkist has become my first stop when I get a book recommendation - I check out the 15 minute version of the book to see if I want to actually read it or see more from the author.
