Colin J Browne | Organisational Expert Culture

The message that Colin J Browne conveys is such an important one and the more people who hear him, the better”: Peter Maher, Director of Alumni Relations, University of the Witwatersrand

  • Are mobile working and flexitime good for culture or bad?
  • Does the current leave structure work in a 21st century working world?
  • How do modern perks measure up as benefits to employers, versus employees?

Who inspired you to pursue your dream of speaking?
Nobody really. I’m first and foremost a writer and researcher and the speaking goes with the programme. It’s hands down the best way to get out and lend the material credibility and it’s also enormous fun for me.

What advice would you give to somebody if they were interested in pursuing professional speaking?
Don’t be a charlatan. This world is densely populated by people who claim to be experts when they’ve just pulled a bunch of stuff off Google. You need to have content and you need to have developed that yourself. Audiences deserve something authentic.

The underlying concept of this book is that employees in a business are like children in a sandpit. If you have a group of children who play well together, they’ll build sandcastles.

They may build very elaborate ones. One will run off to the tap and fetch a bucket of water and they’ll build a moat. They’ll have such a good time doing it that they will want to do it again tomorrow.
