PANEL – How is the Talent Agenda Influencing Investors’ Decisions?

Stuart Woollard, Co-Founder, The Maturity Institute
Ian Curtin, Consulting Principal, Ogilvy Consulting
Georgina Murphy, Deputy Director, Head of Portfolio Management, Ireland Strategic Investment Fund

Read more
We are consistently told that our people are our most valuable assets and that people are central to delivering the organisation’s strategy. But does this really matter to investors? When making decisions about investing in an organisation, to what extent do investors assess the strength of an organisation’s leadership team and their ability to deliver?

12:00PM

KEYNOTE – Leading People with Purpose

Marianne Roux – Director, Roux Consulting

Read more
Today’s complex problems and challenges can no longer be tackled with the narrowly-focused, unconnected thinking of the past. In fact, complexity and uncertainty is growing much faster than leader capability. Oversimplified and fixed models of leadership and leadership development do not acknowledge the inherent complexity of human behaviour and the context within which this behaviour occurs. To be effective in this new context, the leader’s thinking must be equal or superior to the complexity of the environment and development must be continuous. In this session, we will cover a model of Adaptive Leadership and a framework of Leadership Development fit for the future of work context.

12:45PM

Networking Lunch – Facilitated Round Table Discussions

2:15PM

All will be revealed

KEYNOTE – The Curious Advantage

Simon Brown Author, The Curious Advantage & Chief Learning Officer, Novartis

Read more
What is the role of Curiosity in navigating some of today’s tensions and pressures? What are the benefits of curiosity and how can I use it to my advantage? How can I drive my curiosity and how can it help me to manage Unease and Uncertainty? With the world changing faster than ever, how can I be ready? How do organisations build a culture of curiosity and align it with individuals taking responsibility for their own learning?

3:20PM

KEYNOTE – So Much Potential!

Lily Collison Program Director, Gillette Children’s Healthcare Press: Author Spastic Diplegia–Bilateral Cerebral Palsy;Co-author Pure Grit: Stories of Remarkable People Living with Physical Disability

Read more
According to the World Health Organisation, fifteen percent of the world’s population have a disability. That’s a billion people. Organisations often miss out on so much talent by mistaken assumptions and/or unconscious discomfort when engaging with people with disabilities. Talented people are often overlooked, not just by physical barriers but also attitudinal barriers. Changing mindsets could mean a lot of job vacancies filled. Research shows that organisations that embrace best practice in employing and supporting people with disabilities, outperform their peers. In these days of almost full employment, enlightened organisations are already recognising and tapping into this talent.

3:55 – 4:00PM
