You are cordially invited to the 4th AGM of the Canterbury Safety Charter and presentation by David Williams on ‘Changing Organisation Culture.

We all intuitively understand that there are good workplace cultures, and bad workplace cultures, in this presentation David will explain the five different types of cultures according to the Hudson model, and the five elements that make up a culture and how they differ from one type of culture to another.

David will explain how the ‘Elements of Culture’ can be leveraged to drive culture change, each type of culture will be described so you can adapt your professional praxis to suit your environment, and thus influence how your organisation can/ could indeed change its cultural trajectory.
