What makes this conference different?
Focused content designed for action and practice – the focus of the agenda and event structure are designed to provide actionable tools and practical insights that you can then apply to your own company.More time for genuine discussion – the panel and networking sessions have been built to provide time for in-depth debate and meaningful exchange beyond introductions and superficial outlines of initiatives.
Working group sessions – At the conference, we will be running multiple working group sessions. We plan to ensure all voices are heard as we work to tackle a key issue or question. We may split attendees into smaller groups throughout the session to enable a constructive dialogue.
