Despite some fearing that humans may be redundant and robots will rule the working world, the need to have an engaged and loyal workforce is still at the heart of ensuring an organisation is successful.

How do business leaders and managers maintain confidence from those they lead that their organisations will thrive in today’s Volatile, Uncertain, Complex and Ambiguous (VUCA*) world?  How does the competition for talent impact retention of valuable staff? 

This seminar, involving two TED style talks followed by a panel with a Q&A, provides an opportunity to engage thought leaders and those in industry how developing and fostering trust in your organisational culture makes a positive impact.

Case study: How a global bank is managing engagement and culture today?

After the formal presentations delegates will have an opportunity to question the experts directly about the art of people engagement.  Our keynote speakers John Blakey and Birthe Mester will be joined by Robin Chu, CEO & Founder of CoachBrightalong with industry representatives who will share their insights with the audience.

A networking drinks reception concludes the evening.
