About Culture First

Welcome to Culture First APAC. 

This experience is for HR professionals, people leaders, and Culture First advocates across Asia Pacific. Join us for a day of curated content and discussion to make the world of work better.

Our mission is to inspire you to create a workplace where all voices are understood, where individuals and teams can thrive, and where people have opportunities to grow. You’ll learn from renowned thought leaders, skillful HR practitioners, and experts in the people and culture world.

We’ll cover a wide range of topics from building culture for the hybrid workforce, what skills our managers need to become leaders, and the impact of mental health on performance. You’ll take away ideas and practical tactics to make the changes you’re seeking in your organisation.

Our past celebrated speakers include Esther Perel, Simon Sinek, DeRay Mckesson, Adam Grant, Susan Cain, Cleo Wade, Josh Bersin, Patty McCord, and more. 

Culture First is a single-day experience with curated programming from 8am AEST until 4pm AEST. We encourage you to join us live for the entire day. You’ll get the most out of Culture First by being there live - participating in discussions, asking your questions, and meeting like-minded people geeks. Some sessions will be available on-demand in the days and weeks following the experience.
