An open (company) culture empowers autonomy and collaboration

Tom Bamford

The ideal environment is one where you feel included, supported and heard.

How can a company strive to provide that environment for every member, regardless of status or position?
Besides the social responsibility, what are the advantages to a company or organisation in fostering an open culture?

With the current growth in remote working and companies moving to fully distributed, it is no longer possible to micro-manage and time box work hours in an office environment.
Fostering a collective vision with shared values and identity means autonomous teams, collaborative support, where each member is in control and feels able to give back.

This session is built upon my experience in the web industry, with charities, and as a teenager with my first taste of open principles as community facilitator in East Africa.

Learning Objectives:

- Understand how transparency and ownership provides opportunities for empowerment and growth to individuals and organisations alike.
- Apply lessons learned from my personal and professional journey, culminating in my current role with Annertech.
- Promote involving and listening to everyone throughout an organisation to lead positive changes.

Target Audience:

Anyone who wishes to have or provide more ownership and engagement in their organisation.
