Breakfast seminar: Activating your speak up culture

Event date/time: Thu, 16 May 2024 8:30 am - 10:30 am BST

The topic of culture and conduct has never been higher on the agenda. News headlines have been dominated by stark examples – from business, media, the public sector, politics and beyond – of the human, reputational and financial damage inflicted by toxic cultures or poor conduct, where inclusion, values, behaviours and the safety to speak up, have fallen short.

Time and again we have seen that psychological safety – and the ability to speak up – is at the heart of managing these risks.

Our own Clare Thornton, Partner, and James Baker, Executive Director, are excited to be hosting a specialist breakfast event for leaders committed to creating a speak up culture in their organisations – a critical component in building risk resilience and good conduct.

The event will be run in partnership with Kin&Co, a purpose-led culture consultancy, whose experts Becky Hewitt, CEO, Thomas Lassetter, Associate Director and Speak Up Lead, and Beth King, OD Consultant and Business Psychologist, will share their knowledge and expertise on the topic.

If you’d like to attend, please contact Clare ( or James ( to register your interest.

Why attend our event?

  • Spend time with behaviour change experts to dig into speak up theory, best practice and real-life organisational examples
  • Get an understanding of the benefits and risks associated with this work to build your business case for action
  • Network with a community of like-minded leaders to share learning
