A word from our Director of Program & Experience, Melanie Greblo

Ours are gripping times. The clock ticks seemingly faster on our most pressing issues and the imperative for business to heed the call to impact is starker than ever. This year’s two-day Summit program will provoke and inspire us to greater impact at an accelerated pace.

There will be “unconference” space to ensure you get to have the conversations, debate and time to set your own agenda, and Daring Circles will close in on some pointy issues, whilst deep dives will allow co-creative, collaborative and action-orientated time across 6 key areas, and our plenary sessions will truly transform.
