In our inaugural Berlin Culture First Chapter Event, we want to give you the opportunity to connect with other people who are stepping up to the challenge of re-opening the office. Of course we're a culture focussed group, so we're not going to go through the legal requirements, but rather focus on how to help everyone along on their journey out of enforced home-office time into a new normal.
We're hoping to have everyone share openly about their experiences and their journey, and also give space to crowd-source ingenious thoughts about how we can make everyone feel safe and comfortable in this transition.
For those who have never come to a culture-first meeting, think of this as a safe space to brainstorm with like-minded individuals. Perhaps you need inspiration, or just some help to round out your ideas. Perhaps you have a great approach and are happy to share and have other people benefit from your experience. Regardless of where you're at, if you are happy to connect and share we welcome you to do so.
This event is hosted in English, but German speakers are on-hand to help if you need a quick translation of something.
The event will take place over Zoom, just sign up and you'll receive a link to join us just before the meeting.
Simon has taken an unusual path into the People space.
Starting out in Hotels he learned about servant-leadership early. He decided to leave the industry for better work-life balance, and re-trained as a network and security specialist, ending up in the world of Hollywood movies. While he enjoyed his time working with machines, he was always drawn to the point where people interacted with computers. As he took on more responsibility for this intersection, his career moved further away from machines and more toward people and leadership. Fast forward almost 10 years of peer and leadership coaching, he finally chose to move his focus to building excellent people departments. Now he is constantly looking for how to tweak and improve everything to do with how people work together while being a service-oriented people professional.
Ramita enjoys working with leaders to help them create and maintain a healthy work environment where talents can flourish and be their best in what they do. Merging my professional experience of working in the public and private sector, I help people leaders to be aware of wellbeing, environmental and social governance while working with people.
Nowadays, people are collaborating, connecting and coordinating at a pace or scale never experienced before. Navigating through change and adapting to it has become essential for everyone at and beyond the workplace. My aim is to create an inspiring vision for change and be an active agent for the future of work.
