When I was growing up my Dad worked on the production line at a school bus factory. He spent 35 years making school buses. And making a difference.
He actually cared about his job, his company and the people he worked with. He cared about the kids who'd be riding those buses. And he cared about his employees, not just their livelihoods but their lives. He did all that because he stood for something. For decency. For common sense. For making things better. And for doing the right thing.
That made quite an impression on me.
Because of him, for over 30 years I've worked in internal communication, culture change and employee engagement to help companies understand and unlock the tremendous business value of their workplace cultures. That’s not just the right thing to do for the employees. It’s the best thing to do for the business.
Over my career, I’ve helped more than 100 companies and over 200,000 employees reimagine their approach to internal comms and culture, guiding them to strengthen their workplace so they can be more successful in the marketplace.
There’s nothing more satisfying than helping a culture go from tired and bored to inspired and on board.
This work is more than just what I do. Thanks to my Dad, it’s who I am.
