1: Competing in the new world of work

Keith Ferrazzi, Entrepreneur and global thought leader in the relational and collaborative sciences

Be introduced to powerful mindsets and high-return practices aimed at breaking down silos to drive transformation and achieve breakthrough growth in this Masterclass with Keith Ferrazzi.

Recent world changes such as increasing volatility, massive shifts in employee sentiment, and advanced technologies that transform how we work have delivered an opportunity to shed antiquated ways of doing business and face the ‘future of work’ head-on. However, Ferrazzi contends, many of us continue to go about work as we always have, applying outdated collaborative and cultural practices that no longer match the problems we face or the technologies available to us.

Join Keith in this inspiring and motivating Masterclass that will equip you with the tools to:

  • create a world-class team committed to the mission and to each other,
  • re-engineer workplace collaboration,
  • make the most of remote and hybrid work, and
  • optimize modes of work for the appropriate outcomes.

To encourage the transfer of knowledge into practical application, Masterclass participants will reflect on their lived experiences and create an action plan to apply in their own workplace the proven high-return practices used by world-class teams.

2: Disrupting HR to create impact through strategic thinking and agility

Lucy Adams, CEO, Disruptive HR

Having held Board level HR roles for over 10 years, most recently at the BBC, Lucy’s know-how is the successful combination of strategic and operational HR expertise with a fresh but practical approach that aims to put the “human” back into HR. Building on her keynote session, in this Masterclass Lucy will dig deeper into HR’s key trends and explore how you can be an HR disruptor through thinking more strategically and agilely.

Specifically, Lucy will identify how you can:

  • Move the HR function away from what may have simply become a role of compliance or advice giving towards becoming a much more strategic, value-add role that is highly regarded and proactively sought out by key management.
  • Influence your leaders to embrace changes in how they lead, engage, and develop their people, and provide the tools to help them.
  • Adapt and mold your traditional performance and talent management processes, and others, to be much more impactful and that add real value to your role.
  • Build a ‘consumer-style’ experience for your employees, generating greater ‘buy in’ and loyalty as they learn about the real value of HR.
