By now, you have discussed your event objectives and will appreciate there will be a common theme running throughout both days. However, you will have a unique challenge or problem that needs solving, and it is critical that we seek out those gold nuggets of information that will really help drive improvement within your role, teams and organisation.
These sessions are designed by you, for you, and you will be encouraged to write specific challenges, or indeed solutions on the colour coded post-it notes on your tables and stick them on the wall at the back of the conference hall under their unique titles.
Our facilitators will collect and analyse this information and it will be used as a basis to drive discussion and ensure you get the answers you need.
