Knowledge-sharing sessions: Delivering value from innovation

Time: 3:50 pm - 12:00 am

Date: Day One | Monday 21 September 2020


This series of facilitated group sessions emphasises unique knowledge sharing opportunities.  The aim is to deliver insights and take-aways that are simply not typically available and come from hearing experienced practitioners discuss real experiences in a confidential, intimate and interactive setting.  These interactive and informal discussions follow the Chatham House rule – giving you the freedom to speak your mind and providing what some previous delegates have described as ‘group therapy’. Small groups allow everyone to participate and brainstorming will give insight into your peers’ challenges and provide solutions to your own.

For 2020 our Advisory Board have set the over-arching theme, which focuses intently on how professional organisations can deliver real, sustainable and meaningful value from the ever-accelerating array of innovation and technology projects and investments.  Overcoming resistance, developing critical digital capabilities, addressing deep-seated obstacles to change, aligning business process and performance management to the new normal all feature in this exceptional menu of sessions for delegates to select from.

There will be two 40-minute sessions so that you can attend two of the ten topics.
