“Culture is not what you say it is – it’s how it feels.”

Being a Culture Pioneer feels like that rare combination of privilege and duty. This awards programme brings attention to how a fabulous culture – the shaping of which is in thousands of deeds, words and sensations – really is what matters in helping people flourish in their work.”
