Why Company Culture Matters To Me

"If you live for the weekends, your sh**t's broken."

- Gary Vaynerchuk

When my Dad was 40 years old he was diagnosed with Parkinson's, an incurable degenerative disease. He knew that the disease would rob him of everything, but he didn’t let it stop him.  In the face of a terrible diagnosis my Dad set out to LIVE every day, as fully as possible. He continued to work, and travel with the love of his life (my Mum), and our family, he skied every winter until he had to be carried off the mountain by ski patrollers, he rode his bike, he played in the drum corps with his oldest friends, he ran with our dog… he showed us all how much he loved us, he laughed as hard as he could, and he embraced every single day.

My Dad’s been gone for 6 years, but I only recently realized the greatest gift he left behind: by showing us how to embrace the time we have here on earth, my Dad taught his family and friends that life is too short not to truly LIVE it every single day, and not just the weekends.

In my life LIVING every day means travelling the world to help companies build and scale amazing company culture, consulting and facilitating workshops and retreats with international and distributed teams, seeking adventure, and helping you build a workplace full of engaged, productive, connected and happy employees, whether they’re working remotely, or in your hometown office!

We get one trip here on Earth. This is it. One life. So why not make it the most amazing trip ever? For you, and for your team, no matter where they are in the world.

Build an amazing company culture, boost your bottom line, and truly LIVE every day.
