A week of virtual conversations with inspiring business leaders, authors and consultants from around the world

Uncover how to improve
Employees’ Attitudes and Behaviours
so yours continues to be a
Company Worth Working For in 2015

We all know employees give of their best when they believe their company values them.

We’ve brought together six experts in leadership and employee engagement so you can help stakeholders engage with your business vision, values and purpose.

Register, listen-in and contribute as they share the latest on developing people, networking, explaining change, flexible working, trust and credibility, and much more…

Though they work for different companies and on different continents – North America, Europe, India, Australasia – the thinking and best practices they share you will find relevant as well.

Join them for the 2015 Worth Working Summit where they share what they’ve found works in practice in many different countries and cultures

You'll hear new insights, ideas, tools and techniques you can apply in your own organisation.

Listening in is easy and FREE! Worth Working Summit 2015 is a virtual online event.

You can listen in no matter where you are in the world and at a time that suits you via computer, laptop, iPhone, iPad, iPod and other mobile devices.

Over five days we will look in detail at what makes a company worth working for; answering the questions:

  • How do you work out what to do differently to increase employee motivation and satisfaction?
  • How do you uncover things that have the potential to undermine morale in your organisation?

These are big questions for any business – with complex solutions that shift and change.

Meet your panel of global experts and some of the well-kept secrets they will be revealing…

Join the conversation, debate the issues, share your own experiences

Once you sign up you will be able to listen to the interviews free-of-charge between 4-8 May 2015.

Each interview lasts around 30 minutes and will be broadcast for a 23-hour period so that you can listen in no matter where in the world you are based.

Every day you will receive an email with all the details for the next day’s interviews so you have time to plan when you will listen around your work commitments. You’ll be able to listen via a computer, laptop, iphone, ipad and other mobile devices.

Additionally, from the day you register, you will be able to join the conversations in our LinkedIn group where you can connect with the speakers and other summit members.

When you register you will also be given the option to purchase the interviews on CD and as digital downloads at a special discounted rate that is available only to Worth Working Summit members for a limited period.

Why a virtual telesummit …

If we put these leaders in a live conference you would pay thousands of pounds to listen to them – and you wouldn’t get any work done.

Now you can have the same experience without leaving your desk and I’m inviting you to attend this amazing event for FREE!

You don’t have to pay for hotels, flights, meals, attendance fees or any of the other costs usually associated with business events.

And if you purchase the CDs and audio downloads then you can listen and listen again to each of the speakers. Every time you listen you’ll hear new nuggets of wisdom.

All you need to do is register today to join the summit and get access to our speakers and their accumulated years of experience.

We’re looking forward to connecting with you…
