Michael Licenblat: Building a pressure proof culture and resilient workforce
Leaders today need to do more than manage processes and operations, and widen their understanding of human behaviour if they want to create a high performing team. When leaders create a Pressure Proof culture, they help their team to step up, lean in, switch on and stick around.

Penny Burke: Why condoms don’t come in size SMALL
When selling your product or service, the logical thing is to sell what makes your product different or unique, right? Well yes – but FIRST you have to understand who you are selling to and how they currently behave. In this keynote Penny explains how to use behavioural science and get your audience to do something different tomorrow than they did yesterday.

Peter Williams: The future of work
Most of the talk on the Future of Work is focused on where work will be done. However, in a “work from anywhere” world the really impactful change will be in how the work will be done; maximising the best of technology and humanity. Peter will show how technology such as digital twins, machine learning and AI is and can change work for those both inside and outside a traditional office environment.
