Master The Emotional Culture Deck

Jeremy spent five years developing the Emotional Culture Deck workshop with teams at Xero, New Zealand Rugby, Panasonic, Westpac, Kiwibank and IAG.

His live Masterclasses have sold out in Sydney, Melbourne, Chicago, New York, London, Auckland, Wellington and Toronto. But not everyone can make it to a masterclass in person. Over 300 people enrolled in the ECD Online Masterclass Course in 2020.

People working with the deck are always asking how they can deliver the most possible value to their clients and teams. How they can stand out from the crowd. So we put Jeremy’s knowledge to work - several years and thousands of hours’ worth of development and practice, built off hundreds of workshops - and created this Masterclass.
