Culture in Action is back for 2019! Bringing together IT leaders from across the country, the theme of this year’s conference is ‘evolving yourself, evolving the organisation’. Attendees will be treated to an exciting and engaging day, split between these two streams.
The ‘evolving yourself’ stream will be a chance for self-reflection, covering the key leadership traits and skills that you need to be a culture champion within your organisation. Meanwhile, the 'evolving the organisation' stream will address your IT team at large, delving into the processes, skills, and attitudes your team need to build a culture that drives productivity, innovation and excellence.
The conference content will be split into these two sections. Attendees will be able to attend all presentations as they will be run both in the morning and afternoon, bookended by keynote speeches that bring together the key issues related to both streams.
