Why you should attend

Culture is King. 

While that may be an over-simplification, there can be no doubt that culture is a very powerful determinant of what is – and what isn’t – deemed to be acceptable conduct. 

Based on the poor conduct that has too often prevailed, it’s easy to come to the conclusion that the sector needs what we sometimes describe as a “cultural transfusion”. We believe that culture can be a key driver for reform of the financial services system, enabling the positive, progressive and purposeful finance reform that is so desperately needed. 

To be blunt about it, any attempt to reform the financial services sector without addressing the huge importance of culture will fail. 

This symposium represents a great opportunity to discuss and debate the importance of cultural reform; and how to harness it as a driver for positive, progressive and purposeful reform. 

We’ll be immersing ourselves in the topic and considering a wide range of perspectives. 

Our overall purpose for the event is to shine a very bright light onto this important topic; in keeping with the TTF’s overall mission which is to promote ongoing reform of the financial services sector, so that it serves society better. 

      “Culture eats strategy for breakfast”

– Peter Drucker

  “Why is culture so important to a business? Here is a simple way to frame it. The stronger the culture, the less corporate process a company needs. When the culture is strong, you can trust everyone to do the right thing”

– Brian Chesky

      “Every CEO is in fact a Chief Cultural Officer. The terrifying thing is it’s the CEO’s actual behavior, not their speeches or the list of values they have put up on posters, that defines what the culture is. Without these four powers (Hiring, Firing, Promoting, Punishing) any employee at the company is along for the ride in a culture driven by someone more powerful than they are”

– Scott Berkun

      “There’s really no such thing as internal culture anymore. Your culture is always public, and it’s your most powerful, public-facing asset or liability”

David Mattin
