15 September 2020: I talked to Joe O’Keefe on the theme of  ‘Making change happen’.  Joe used to work with me on energy but has since gone on to greater things, and is now IT Services Director for the insurance company LV. For many years he was involved in, or indeed in charge of, business transformation for LV and as such has a wealth of experience in behaviour change. The Covid pandemic imposed radical and urgent change on employees throughout his company and we reflect on the role of compulsion in corporate culture change. Click here to view the recording.
