Purpose is the change you want to bring to the world. It’s the reason your organisation exists, and it offers clear, continual direction for what you do and how you do it.
The companies that are emerging as leaders in the new economy are truly redesigning every aspect of their business around purpose.
Aaron HurstAuthor of “The Purpose Economy”
Culture is the collective patterns, passions, beliefs and behaviours that guides your interactions, prioritises the things you value, influences the way you operate, and drives your business.
Your purpose will define the culture of your organisation; your culture will determine how successful you are at delivering on your purpose.
If culture is how your organisation works, brand is how it shows up. Brand is your company’s reputation, the feel of every interaction, the lasting impression of all your messaging, marketing and communication.
When company leaders and staff work through the alignment process and embrace the direction, every touchpoint, creative development exercise and marketing activity that follows will prove to be powerful, compelling and true.
The best-loved companies – those with the most loyal customers and employees – have in common an authentic foundation of values, messages and strategies that drive their internal culture as well as their external brand.
When culture and brand are inextricably linked.
When values are truly lived within an organisation it leads to greater differentiation from competitors and deeper customer and employee loyalty.

All businesses have an impact on the world. The critical issue is whether the delivery of services or products has a positive or negative impact. Your purpose, and your consequent impact, is what sets you apart. Defining your purpose, optimising the culture of the organisation, and articulating your commitments are game-changing activities for every business.
