Entrepreneurial People and Culture – how to keep the magic alive as you grow fast and do your key deals

21st Sep 2022 4:00pm - 6:00pm Hosted by EY

In this session, Kia Phillips (EY’s first ever Entrepreneur In Residence) will share her journey as a 5x tech company founder, her learnings along the way and the vital importance of building a solid, scaling culture that embraces the diversity of your team.

Kia will talk about the challenges when dealmaking and partnering with companies with different cultures and sizes, and how to attract and retain the very best people.

There will be other entrepreneurial leaders in the room and Kia will facilitate a discussion to share learnings – which can then continue over networking drinks!

You’ll walk away with insight, ideas and practical advice on how to accelerate your success by focussing on your culture.
