Colin J Browne heads up Happy Sandpit, a South African organisational culture consultancy which helps organisations of all sizes to increase employee engagement, performance and loyalty.

He is the author of ‘How to Build a Happy Sandpit’, a ground-breaking book based on research conducted with more than 60 South African businesses over several years, on how their cultures drive success.

Colin conducts keynotes and workshops aimed at helping organisations to identify and to overcome their particular challenges in the six key areas that define a more engaged organisation:

–    A willingness to extend TRUST
–    A taste for ADULT CONVERSATIONS
–    The de-emphasis of HIERARCHY
–    Respect for the TWO-WAY STREET
–    An obsession with VALUES
–    The ability to HIRE for culture fit

Southern African businesses operate on the margin between first world and third world economies, making innovation critical to their success. With rapidly changing workforce demographics, innovating ways to achieve employee engagement is the first priority for the best of the best in the region.

The analogy of the Happy Sandpit is used to explain how leading companies in the region build teams that work together well, in the pursuit of a common goal.
