People often start companies with a smart team and great product ideas. But as companies grows, some leaders tend to forget that it's not the product and services that made them successful – it's the culture. Culture may actually be harder to build than any product, but your organization can benefit in every way if you end up with a great one.

Sven works for Atlassian, an Australian software company that grew from 8 to 800 people in the last 10 years. He will share successes – and struggles – with bringing new people into a strong company culture, how culture is upheld in distributed teams, how your team can maintain its core culture, and why innovation and fun should be part of every company's culture.
