Saielle DaSilva: How to Hack the Culture Stack

Culture is the people operating system of a business. Leadership is the hard work of building and sustaining that culture.

Using the culture stack as a model, Saielle will show how you can take a lean approach to moulding the interrelated behaviours, systems and beliefs of an organisation to set standards, cultivate and distribute leadership.

She will consider why psychological safety is the foundation of a strong and sustainable culture, what that means in practice and how you make it work.

In this talk you’ll learn practical tips on aligning your team, making better hires, and distributing your culture in a scalable way.

You will learn how to hack the culture stack.

Saielle DaSilva

Director of UX, Cazoo

Saielle’s approach to org design was informed by her time as a volunteer in the wake of hurricane Sandy in October 2012. In the midst of a catastrophic event, volunteers had to act fast to help people, save lives, and transform chaos into effective response. A few activists were able to organize mutual aid, provide deep coverage of actual events, and feed people long before established organisations.

Saielle’s worked with AT&T, Amazon, and Pivotal and is now Director of User Experience at Cazoo; where her experience of hiring and building culture at scale has been adopted by a company that has grown from startup in 2018 to over 2,000 employees today.
