 People and culture are fundamental to your business performance and values.

At the same time, competitive survival, and gaining that edge, means technology change must be constant.   Each change challenges people and culture, leading to new problems.

How can we help people thrive in this age of fast change? 

How can we think differently and solve the new problems emerging in the "always on" age?

Key Speakers

Emma Stroud


"I help high-level CEOs, MDs, authors and entrepreneurs realise the power and truth in their story, and how they can use it to positively influence and inspire others. It is about helping them to unpick their unique ability to connect with their true self and their wider purpose and I have helped thousands of people raise their impact through this process. I have helped people work on their TEDx talks, keynote presentations and so much more...

I also host global events, the one of the most recent European Women in Sales Awards in 2017. I am, and have always been, a comedy performer. My next one woman show is in March 2019 following the success of my award-winning sellout debut in London in 2015. I also perform in a London comedy improvisation troupe, the Banana Bunch.

I have recently been featured in the Telegraph, Diva Magazine, BBC Radio and the Lorraine Show."
