Emma Langman and Melanie Ross will be joining as Keynote speakers. Emma’s session is entitled ‘OD from a Systems Engineers Perspective’, and Melanie will talk about “Digital Leadership and Transformation”. Corporate Rebels Pim de Morree and Joost Minnaar will host a Perspectives on Our Current World session. There will also be two Open Space sessions, so everyone will have the opportunity to shape the agenda.
In addition to keynotes, Tom Carter and Rafal Dziwinski from u2i will join Pim de Morree and Joost Minnaar in presenting their research/case studies on Day One: From Giraffes to Gibbons and How Progressive Organisations Challenge the Status Quo and successfully motivate their workforce.
On Day Two, Kate Cowie will open with a keynote session entitled “Reigniting the Fire of the OD Profession: theory, musings, autobiography and a call to action”. Also on Day two, there will be two Open Space sessions. Both sessions will have a one-hour time slot available, and in some cases, sessions may extend over both time slots. This means ideas can be presented to a group of interested people, or a more intimate conversation can be started to get support or start some thinking. The full agenda for the main conference can be downloaded here.
We encourage everyone to think about anyone they know who may be interested in this fantastic offer. For anyone new to, or on the fringes of, the OD field, the conference fee is being discounted to only £250 plus VAT. Participants will attend an extra day (Tuesday, April 25th) where they will explore the history of the field, some underpinning concepts and be introduced into our conference early so they can feel welcome and included from the beginning. These very special prices are for the 25th, 26th and 27th April, ie the full 3 days. Places in this category are limited. Click here for more details and to view the agenda.
In this two-hour, interactive workshop, Kate Cowie will offer a framework for the human development journey – a journey of many stages of self-identity and self-growth – by drawing on the wisdom of the sages and storytellers of the past, and the discoveries and models of modern researchers and theorists. This session is on Tuesday 25th April from 7.30 to 9.30pm. The cost is £25 for members and £30 for non-members. For more details and to book and pay for your place, click here.
