How do you make a case for the value of culture?

Do you have to tailor your message to specific audiences, and even then, does your explanation lack relatability? In this inspiring and thought-provoking talk, Patrick shares his belief that the value of culture can be communicated in the simple, plain and humble statement that culture makes us happy.

Learn how recognizing three pillars of value and then scaling them from the personal to the public realms gave rise to Patrick’s new model for demonstrating cultural value, the Pie Chart of Happiness.
 

This talk was presented and recorded live at ANZTRUC (the Australia and New Zealand Tessitura Regional Users Conference) in Sydney on April 17, 2018.
