In 2004 Dominic and Claire Taddei set-up Clear Mortgage Solutions (CMS) creating what is, today, one of Scotland’s leading mortgage and protection brokers.

Scott Moorehead, the CEO of TCC Verizon, hired Ryan McCarty to help create a Culture of Good. What the duo began as a powerful movement has grown into a business teaching other companies that inspired employees to ignite positive change in the world and impact your bottom line positively.
Imagine how engaged employees would be if they were given the permission to care about not just their job, but also their fellow employees, customers and the cause they are most passionate about in life? What would it be like if employees got the chance to make positive changes in the world around them on a daily basis while they did their job? Or, to put that another way, what would happen if people were given the chance to bring their souls to work every day?
Ryan will share how that can happen and what results you can expect.
