Picture yourself here: In six years your social-change-through-music program has morphed from a pilot project, to teaching 550 children daily, in four locations – with 35 teaching artists from five countries. And you’re on track to double in size. That’s Sistema NB, the largest program of its kind in Canada and still growing.

One success factor has been Sistema NB’s deliberate creation of positive organisational culture. Without that internal vision and plan, the ethos of an organisation sprouts by accident.

In this interactive presentation, Ken MacLeod, founder and CEO, will unpack the Sistema NB experience – how they define organisational culture, nurture it day-by-day, and sustain it for tomorrow. Insights discussed here can help your organisation align individuals, and your entire team with an empowering common understanding of who you are together, and how you’ll have an impact.
