Having the right company culture is the foundation of any successful business.  A positive, proactive and dynamic culture where employees feel valued is top of many bosses wish list - but how do you make it happen?  And how can you ensure your own entrepreneurial values are reflected across your organisation? This Supper Club looked at how to achieve this.

Feedback

Great anecdotes from around the table as always, founded by some real good theoretical discussions about leadership and very differing opinions about culture and how to grow and protect it

The value of these events are shared experiences and lots of tips

There was a great varied discussion which covered lots of angles on company culture. It was good to hear different ideas on how people create their culture

There were very willing and interesting delegates, happy to share ideas and insights

I enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and the willingness of everyone to share ideas and suggestions. This was my first event and I look forward to attending others

Vivid insight and valuable open dscussions about building culture. One of the more beneficial events I have been to in recent years

Key tip for me was 'Magic moment' - highlight something every week that typifies your chosen cultural behaviours. Don't accept behaviour that falls outwith your cultural norms. Work hard at defining and nurturing your culture. Think about how the successors in your business can be the custodians of your culture. Make sure the bus is full of the right people in the right seats

Tips for me - culture beats process - create legends in your business - what did I do to raise or destroy the energy level of the team today? - use core values at every meeting

Use of language makes a big difference - 'learning' is better than 'training', 'colleagues' instead of employees etc.,

Ian was excellent - controlled the conversation in a very unobtrusive manner and kept conversation going. Ensured everyone had input

Ian was very thoughtful, wanted everyone to get something from the evening

Ian was great. He controlled the meeting very well, and allowed everyone to get involved, and kept the topic moving

Ian had obviously done some homework and taken time to prepare. He occasionally pulled the conversation back to the topic which was great

Ian was excellent - really ensured that everyone had the opportunity to participant and also that everyone had something to take away

Scott was excellent, well prepared and knowledgeable

Scott delivered a good presentation which was very valid and valuable. He kept his presentation to a suitable timescale which allowed more time for discussion

Scott was eloquent, passionate about the subject, engaging and had put some effort preparing, including handouts, so full marks to him

Scott was very inclusive with a relaxed style. Excellent handouts and an obvious expert on his chosen topic
