TEDxHastingsSt 2018 explored culture in its many manifestations.
The old adage, culture eats strategy for breakfast, is often pointed at business managers to encourage them to broaden the view of their business. However, the importance of culture stretches beyond the corporate world to every aspect of life. Governments must be conscious of the cultural impact of their policies. Scientists must recognize how their own culture may skew their own experiments.
Even at the individual level, our own culture constantly fights against our strategies as well. Dieting is a classic example. It is never successful unless the dieter can change their personal culture.
TEDxHastingsSt was held on 7 July 2018 at MTG Hawke’s Bay which is just off Hastings St.
