We’ve brought together seven experts in leadership and employee engagement so you can help stakeholders engage with your business vision, values and purpose.

Learn from their expertise and experience as they talk about using benefits that provide core business stability, leveraging entrepreneurial autonomy, viral employee engagement, and much more…

Though they work for different companies and on different continents – North America, Europe, Africa, Australasia – the thinking and best practices they share you will find relevant as well.

Join them for the 2014 Worth Working Summit when they share what they’ve found works in practice in many different countries and cultures

You'll hear new insights, ideas, tools and techniques you can apply in your own organisation.

Listening in is easy and FREE! Worth Working Summit 2014 is a virtual online event.

You can listen in no matter where you are in the world and at a time that suits you via computer, laptop, iPhone, iPad, iPod and other mobile devices.

Over five days we will look in detail at what makes a company worth working for; answering the questions:

  • How do you work out what to do differently to increase employee motivation and satisfaction?
  • How do you uncover things that have the potential to undermine morale in your organisation?

These are big questions for any business – with complex solutions that shift and change.

Meet your panel of global experts and some of the well-kept secrets they will be revealing…

Every day you will receive an email with all the details for the next day’s interviews so that you have time to plan when you will listen around your work commitments. You’ll be able to listen via a computer, laptop, iphone, ipad and other mobile device.

Additionally, from the day you register, you will be able to join the conversations in our LinkedIn group where you will be able to connect with the speakers and other summit members.

When you register you will also be given the option to purchase the interviews as a CD boxed set at a special discounted rate that is available only to Worth Working Summit members for a limited period.

Why a virtual telesummit …

If we put these speakers in a two-day seminar you would pay thousands of pounds to listen to them – and you wouldn’t get any work done.

Now you can have the same experience without leaving your desk and I’m inviting you to attend this amazing event for FREE!

You don’t have to pay for hotels, flights, meals, seminar fees or any of the other costs usually associated with attending a business event.

And if you purchase the audio downloads then you can listen and listen again to each of the speakers. Every time you listen you’ll hear new nuggets of wisdom.

All you need to do is register today to join the summit and get access to our speakers and their accumulated years of experience.

We’re looking forward to connecting with you…
