5:05 PM SSOW BIG IDEAS KEYNOTE Explore the best-kept secrets of the world's most successful team to implement a growth culture – bringing insights from psychology, anthropology and data science

Growth mindset is the psychological ingredient that underpins great organisations. People in this mindset see success as dynamic in nature. They are less worried about what they know now than about how quickly they can learn. Precisely because of this perspective, they look for new information, update their assumptions, and are not afraid of their mistakes.

The right psychology is the starting point for all the other things – agility, adaptability, innovation, continuous improvement – that are so important to our future. We need to get away from self-justification and status quo bias - and change the world.

In his keynote Matthew will explore some of the best-kept secrets of the world's most successful teams, as well as bring insights from psychology, anthropology and data science. He will highlight how to implement a growth culture and the difference that that can have on performance – both at an individual level and at an organisational level.
