Startup Success Series: Leading for High Performance and Wellbeing

Leading a team through changing and unpredictable conditions is no easy feat, particularly with the added transition of working from home.

For this webinar, we sat down with Kirstin Hunter, co-founder and MD of Future Super; Hugh Williams, co-founder and CEO of CS in Schools; and Kath Rau, Global People Operations Director of Culture Amp, to discuss sustaining high performance and productivity in your team; maintaining company culture whilst working from home and more. Startup Victoria's Director of Programs and Partnerships Poppy Trewhella moderates.
