Episode Three with Bruce Daisley
Episode Four - Creating a Great Workplace Culture - Bruce
Work culture is a term we hear all the time but what does a healthy culture actually look like? We speak to Bruce Daisley, whose had experience running Twitter in London and was an integral part of Google’s set up too. As a published author, his second book on work culture is called Fortitude, so we called on Bruce to share some wisdom on the topic and give us a little insight on what it’s really like to move from start-up, to scale-up to a bigger organisation. Be sure to also check out his podcast, Eat, Sleep, Work, Repeat, where he talks more about the ins and outs of work culture.
