Can you build a powerful, dream network in a virtual world? Networking expert J. Kelly Hoey, author of Build Your Dream Network: Forging Powerful Relationships In A Hyper-Connected World, firmly believes we can. In this session Kelly shares her fresh take on networking and the ways you can adapt for a future of more virtual, fewer in-person IRL interactions - and not lose out on the opportunity to forge meaningful, lasting connections in virtual settings.

Key Takeaways:

  • Why a new approach to this necessary skill is critical after the events of 2020
  • Provide a new definition for networking (which will change how you approach networking online and off)
  • Outlines the opportunities to be unlocked by embracing a network-building mindset on social networking platforms
  • Shares why showing up every day is your most valuable networking skill (and ways to do that without being a braggart, bore or pest)
  • Discusses the biggest networking mistake you’re making (it’s not what you think it is)

What Happens After Lockdown? Preparing For a Hybrid Working Model Post Covid-19

Covid-19 accelerated tenfold the Bank of England’s adoption of collaboration technologies, remote working practices and our focus on virtual team productivity. In the space of a few weeks, we transformed our ways of working and strengthened our technology to enable our workforce (5,500+ strong) to effectively operate even our most mission critical systems from home. As for so many organisations, this change has had a profound impact on the way the Bank interacts and collaborates today. In this session we will explore the key elements that made this a successful transition, and discuss the longer term implications for us as an institution, placing our people’s needs at the centre of a digital evolution.

Key Takeaways:

  • Explore the main challenges for organisations in fully embracing a remote working culture; and how to tackle them.
  • Understand the benefits of hybrid working models and how to strike the right balance of in-person and digital collaboration.  
  • Making the change stick: how to plan the next stage of digital transformation with your people at the centre.

A Multigenerational Debate on The Changing Face of Business & Tech

Alisha Arora

Interacting and engaging with those who hold different views and opinions to us is a key part of all day-to-day lives. Such differing perspectives are exacerbated between generations through their different belief systems and life experiences. By focusing more time on understanding those from different generations; their goals, how they work, what’s important to them, we can work to establish a tech industry that is built on cohesion and collaboration. Join this panel to play witness to representatives from Baby Boomers, Gen-X, a Millennial, and a student as they debate their views on how the tech industry is set to evolve.

Key takeaways:

  • A debate on how we must start looking at tech, processes, and people in new ways to drive impact and efficiency
  • Explore the most effective way to challenge traditional thinkers in businesses to overcome archaic gender stereotypes
  • Pinpointing the implications of evolving business strategies - what do they mean for GDP, market disruption, and the future skills pipeline?
  • Speculating on digital products and their impact on the future - how are they set to transform businesses and the nature of work?
  • Forward-thinking - what’s to come, what’s its impact, and how must we adapt

Interacting and engaging with those who hold different views and opinions to us is a key part of all day-to-day lives. Such differing perspectives are exacerbated between generations through their different belief systems and life experiences. By focusing more time on understanding those from different generations; their goals, how they work, what’s important to them, we can work to establish a tech industry that is built on cohesion and collaboration. Join this panel to play witness to representatives from Baby Boomers, Gen-X, a Millennial, and a student as they debate their views on how the tech industry is set to evolve.

Key takeaways:

  • A debate on how we must start looking at tech, processes, and people in new ways to drive impact and efficiency
  • Explore the most effective way to challenge traditional thinkers in businesses to overcome archaic gender stereotypes
  • Pinpointing the implications of evolving business strategies - what do they mean for GDP, market disruption, and the future skills pipeline?
  • Speculating on digital products and their impact on the future - how are they set to transform businesses and the nature of work?
  • Forward-thinking - what’s to come, what’s its impact, and how must we adapt

There is a sense that bro culture is synonymously linked with technology, exacerbated by the lack of a gender balance. Such hostile cultures don’t simply contribute to unpleasant professional environments but are detrimental to employee retention by encouraging bullying and discrimination. We’re at breaking point and action needs to be taken by managers and senior executives to cull cultures of harassment and intimidation to replace them with flourishing environments of productivity.

Key takeaways:

  • Identify what feeds a ‘bro culture’
  • How to kill a culture of blame to support an inclusive environment
  • How to implement effective HR processes to prevent the growth of bro culture

The world we live in is becoming increasingly interlinked. The conversation on diversity and equality is often separated and dealt with individually, focusing on either race, gender, class, sexuality, disability distinctly but not a combination. However, discrimination and oppression are not siloed. This talk delves into how an individual’s social identity can overlap, creating compounding experiences of discrimination. Introducing the concept of intersectionality. A strive in the right direction by representing one group of people as equals will fail to achieve equality for all. The work towards creating a diverse workplace and a better society must be intersectional and considerate of all the different aspects of social categorisations.

Key Takeaways:

  • An introduction to the concept of intersectionality
  • Understanding the impact of intersectionality on discrimination
  • Why Intersectionality should be viewed as a superpower
  • Why & how we (individuals and organisations) should champion intersectionality
