Creating a Global Company Culture

Jean-Pierre Lacroix

President, Shikatani Lacroix

When it comes to the design industry, President Jean-Pierre Lacroix is always one step ahead. A visionary design thinker, author and speaker, JP maintains an unwavering focus on the latest and emerging trends. Driven to produce measurable results through strategic insights, he is committed to helping brands own the consumers’ “at-purchase moment.”

 

JP’s past industry involvement as a board member with the Packaging Association of Canada, Design Industry Advisory Committee, Retail Council of Canada, the Canadian Marketing Association, Signs Canada, the Society for Environmental Graphic Design and the Association of Registered Graphic Designers of Ontario has enabled him to assist clients in identifying the leading packaging, retail and digital trends that affect their branding initiatives.

 

Since opening the Shikatani Lacroix Design doors more than 25 years ago, JP has grown this company into one of the most respected and sought-after multidisciplinary strategic design agencies in the world. Along the way, he has developed a reputation as a true innovator and first-rate problem-solver, with expertise in providing clients with unique, results-driven solutions for their product and service needs.

Expanding to new markets requires many skills but only one factor will ultimately impact the success of any new initiative. A company culture or the need to shift the culture to allow for a spirit of global expansion will be the ultimate defining factor on the ability of companies to expand beyond their borders. Very often companies looking to expand their geographic footprint overlook the human factor in managing the growth leading to often unmet potential.
This session will explore:
  • How do we define a company’s culture?
  • What are the potential cultural gaps as companies expand and how do you overcome these?
  • Who is responsible for leading any cultural shift?
  • What are the five cultural factors that will identify if your organization is ready to make the expansion move?
The session will be hosted by Mr. Jean-Pierre Lacroix, President of SLD, a global brand consulting firm, author, futurist and keynote speaker. Mr. Lacroix has assisted many companies navigating major transformation by demonstrating the importance of company culture.
