AGENDA

  • Our host Morag Cuddeford-Jones will open the show.

  • This session will look at the progress made in terms of inclusion and what is needed to move it forward. Debbie will discuss ways in which organisations are putting inclusion, equity and belonging at the heart of their work and why this isn’t just the “right” thing to do but a smart strategic move.

  • Enjoy a 10-minute break and grab a cup of tea.

     

  • In fast-paced environments, we often see companies jumping from product-driven growth straight into marketing-driven growth. Unfortunately this means that they forget the customer in the process. Revolut has grown at an unbeatable pace within the industry by being able to build from scratch a trusted and engaged community that has ultimately become the driving force behind our hypergrowth. Putting the customer in the center of the growth strategy has been key to the company's success.

  • Latest research by GreatBusinessSchools.com shows that 83% of us now work remotely and that over 79% of young professionals believe that it is unnecessary to go into the office. However the same research evidences that nothing is more important that in person interactions for connecting with and converting prospects.

    Over 72% of people attending networking events are influenced by simple gestures such as looks and handshakes, so how can we engage and stimulate their senses remotely in order to drive the human connectivity that is so important for business?

    Virtual & Hybrid events have clearly seen exponential growth during the last 12 months but the customer experience for B2B events is still questionable at best. This session will look at best practice delivery of remote and hybrid events with a focus on creating more immersive, engaging experiences.

  • The year 2020 was fraught with examples of blatant structural inequities and systemic racism. Individuals and organisations alike have been forced to contemplate and reflect on those injustices that have been so clearly illuminated. If there has ever been a time to take a stand, the time is now. But, are organisations really committed to the cause? 

    Join this panel discussion and hear from top leaders in the space about what companies should be doing to create a more diverse, equitable and inclusive workforce as we strive for a more balanced and fairer society.
