For more than 20 years, The Culture Works® has helped organizations of all sizes create workplaces where employees are engaged, enabled, and energized. Our research-based books, speaking, coaching, and courses focus on the employee experience with particular expertise in improving these areas:



Engagement & Motivation


Recognition & Gratitude

Stress, Anxiety & Mental Health

Extremely engaging and motivating talk. Most importantly, the content was tailored perfectly to ensure it was relevant to the fast paced and forever changing needs of our clients.

Sally Williams, Executive Director Morgan Stanley, Hong Kong

Tangible, relevant and practical insights on how to create and maintain healthy employee engagement and accelerate any company culture.

Dave Dodson Vice President, California Pizza Kitchen

The feedback was outstanding. Everyone was talking about being 'All-In.' We now have some highly energized, engaged, and enabled leaders.


We had the pleasure of inviting Chester Elton to speak at our company meeting. It was, by far, the best inspirational talk I've ever heard, full of practical takeaways. We then gifted Leading with Gratitude to all our team members and decided to read it together as a team. The data and studies cited in the book on the positive power of leadership should convince anyone on the fence that teams and cultures perform better when people feel valued. I found practical ways to improve my gratitude quotient and strengthen my team culture. The speech was excellent, and the book was a great reminder and thoroughly energizing. If you need a great keynote speaker for your company or event, do yourself a favor and book Chester Elton. You won't be disappointed!
