About the seminar

"The way we think about work is wrong. 

 

Work is the only place where we expect to be told what to do. We are told at what time to come in, where to sit, when to have lunch or when to take a holiday. 

 

We are, in effect, told who to associate with, who to answer to, what to do and even the way to do it. 

 

Everyone says that their most important asset is our people so let them free. Free from location, free from hierarchy, free from dogma. Liberate them and support them to do what they do best. "
