The World is Changing. Are We?

This event will explore the strategic concepts and practical issues around returning to the workplace. How do you make it right for your business, build on what's worked during lockdown and ensure the 'new approach' aligns to your business' needs rather than reverting to what was in place before? With excellent speakers covering culture and engagement, leadership and hybrid working, plus a panel of experts for a practical Q&A session, this is an event not to be missed.
