Catherine Garrod, Founder, Compelling Culture
Catherine is the Founder of Compelling Culture and collaborates with organisations to boost the experience for colleagues, customers and communities. She believes when employees can be themselves and influence how things are done, their lives are better, they’re more creative and better problem solvers. When consumers are authentically represented in media, we all feel good about ourselves and each other. And when products and services work well for everyone communities thrive. The benefits are endless. Catherine’s superpower is absorbing an organisation’s ambition, defining the approach and providing a compelling plan everyone can get behind with data to embed change and track progress in every team. One of her highlights is leading Sky to be the most inclusive employer with 80% of teams increasing diversity both on and off screen. Having collaborated with Executive teams, every business area and HR, she understands the complexity in embedding sustainable change. Catherine has been on the inside, know how organisations operate, and learnt tonnes about what works (and what doesn’t).
