How to create a culture of trust:
Laura Bouttell

If you want your business to be as productive and efficient as it can be then you need to develop a culture of trust. A culture of trust means that people:
Feel that they can admit they don’t know things
Feel that they can admit they made a mistake
Feel that they can share ideas with others that benefit the whole business
Feel that can admit when they might be struggling
Feel that they can ask for help
Feel that they can rely on their colleagues for support.
A culture of trust comes from the top and there are very simple things you can do each day to develop this in your workplace. This workshop will explain the benefits of a culture of trust as well as teach you the techniques that will help you identify where you are at the moment, and then repair and build a culture where it’s okay to admit to vulnerability so the whole business benefits.

About Laura Bouttell:

Laura has three degrees, two of which are from Oxford University. She is a published author and editor in the competitive field of academia.
After studying Business at University she spent a short stint at Coopers & Lybrand where she realised a career in accounting wasn’t for her.
Wondering what to do with her life she took a surprising career turn and joined the Police in Chapeltown, Leeds, where she qualified as Sergeant in the quickest possible time being promoted quickly from being on the beat to the Murder Incident team. When Laura realised that she wasn’t making the difference she wanted to in the world in the police she decided to go back to the business world to pursue a new endeavour.

Laura built her own interior design company from scratch and worked on substantial projects, managing large teams and navigating tricksy clients. She featured on television, on the Home show and Channel 4's "Location Location Location", and in magazines such as 25 Beautiful Homes, Country House and Yorkshire Life on a regular basis.
After 10 years running her own company Laura decided to undertake a new challenge and fulfil her dream of studying English Literature at Oxford University. While still working full time in her business Laura scored one of the top 5 marks in the country in English A-Level and navigated the notorious Oxbridge interview process to secure offers from both Oxford and Cambridge.
As a result of her time in the corporate world, the Police, her own business and her time at Oxford, Laura has seen the gritty side of life as well as the ivory towers and uses her experiences in these diverse fields to help clients thrive the competitive world of corporate leadership and culture.
