Greer Lucas

Greer thinks Culture Rocks! In fact, so much so, she named her company that. She works with passionate time-poor people leaders and their teams to go from surviving - reviving - to thriving.

With over 15 years of experience working with tier 1 organisations and SMEs in the areas of Technology, Operations and Consulting, she understands the challenges people leaders face in balancing the operational imperatives of their roles, with nurturing happy, productive and loyal teams.

She understands the challenges because she’s been there – instilled culture during 400% team-growth in 3 years, turned struggling and broken groups into productive teams, championed ‘people’ at executive levels using insights and awareness, and implemented practical and affordable initiatives that have driven engagement in fast-paced and challenging environments.

Greer was once asked to talk about ‘engaging people’ without moving her arms – she failed!

It is, without doubt, her most favourite topic and her passion can’t be contained.

Don't miss your chance to see Greer Lucas and many other inspiring speakers at Culture 18.

Tickets start at $695, for an in-depth day on building great teams and cultures.

About Us

Co-founded and now run by John Allsopp, Web Directions has for over a decade brought together leading developers, engineers, visual, IxD, UX and product designers, Art and Creative Directors, product managers indeed everyone involved in producing web and digital products to learn from one another, and the World's leading experts across this vast field.

We spend our lives thinking about what comes next, keeping up with trends in technology, practices and processes, and filtering the hype, to make sure you don't miss trends that matter, and don't waste time on hype that doesn't.

We promise attending one of our events will leave you significantly better versed in the challenges you face day to day, and in solutions for addressing them.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we're switching things up a bit for 2020. We'll be organising Product, Design, and Code as online conferences, and our annual extravaganza, Web Directions Summit will take place in Sydney as soon as it is practicable in late 2020 or early 2021.
