2020 has been an extraordinary year so far. The Coronavirus has changed the world and therefore had a significant impact on everyone on the planet. Even if we haven’t contracted the virus and don’t know anyone who has, the way we live and our day to day lives have changed.

Covid-19 has created fear, uncertainty, and a loss of control in many aspects of our daily lives.

When the world as we knew it stopped with the Covid-19 pandemic, we were divided: all live events were obviously cancelled, and yet this was a time when now more than ever, our speakers’ insights and expertise would be most needed. It was with this in mind that our weekly Breakfast Bites series was born to provide our clients with as much value as we could during lockdown.

 

These complimentary half-hour ‘mini keynote’ episodes have gone from strength to strength. Originally created for ICMI’s clients, Breakfast Bites has gone on to create its own following and is now the highlight of many people’s week. Each Wednesday at 9am AEDT, two speakers and a host from our vast and varied talent pool draw on their lives and experiences to discuss the current climate, providing tangible insights and advice moving forward. Due to its success, Breakfast Bites is now available on-demand, meaning you can return to the series again and again and again.

Why value and values matter more than ever.

There are increasing studies and research highlighting the impact values have on the two groups of people that matter most to the survival, revival and thriving of every business: employees and customers.

A 2019 Nielsen study of employees (especially millennials) found over 70% consider the ethos and impact of a company when considering who they should give their talents to. Often it’s of greater importance than remuneration packages.
