Soft Skills

Premium Ticket Holders Only

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)

Why are we still talking about girls in STEM?

Dr Grainne Watson

Digital CoE Director @ Capita

8 June

Post-Pandemic Strategies

D&I

By April 2020 it was clear that the only way out of lockdown was a vaccine – and as teams all over the globe started to work on finding one frantically, there was an unspoken fear that it was an impossible task. Less than a year later, science has triumphed – and a number of vaccines are beginning to circulate. What is even more remarkable is the role diversity has played in the research teams that have made these breakthroughs. So why, some 40 odd years since the debate started, are we still having to talk about the scarcity of women and girls in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) careers? The session asks what is stopping us from making more progress, and why diversity is essential to success in this sector.

Sustainable Digital Futures – From Research to Product

Cathy Mulligan

Honorary Senior Researcher @ UCL

8 June

Emerging Tech

The world faces some critical challenges going forward in terms of creating a sustainable future. Digital technologies have a critical role to play in balancing the economic, social and environmental impacts of human life. Various prototypes and digital visions exist that illustrate the potential of digital technologies to help with these issues – but these often remain just that – research ideas, prototypes or worse powerpoint slides. How do we build real-world, large-scale impact based on these concepts? Creating sustainable impact often requires difficult discussions and creating balance between multiple stakeholders.

This talk focuses on two of the newer technologies – blockchain and data and illustrates their role in creating a sustainable future. Building on work that has helped spin out over £40-million of start-ups it also illustrates how to move ideas from research / prototype into genuine real-world products.

Key Takeaways:

  • How data and digital technologies are now challenging the way in which we structure our economy in order to build a sustainable future
  • How to think about social, economic and environmental aspects of digital technologies– and how these three are often interlinked
  • How to catalyse real-world change from your ideas/research

Target Audience: Technical audience or those interested in the economic / ethical impacts of data or alternative economic models of technology management

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

Eugenia Planas

Head of Digital Services @ Bank of England

8 June

Digital Transformation

Future of Work

FinTech

Post-Pandemic Strategies

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.

Equality + Equity

Intersectionality Is a Superpower

Maya Prentis

Management Consultant @ Capgemini Invent

8 June

Race & Ethnicity

LGBTQIA+

D&I

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
