Pre-Conference Focus Days

Choose Either A: Building an Agile Culture

Monday 15 July | 12pm – 8pm (includes lunch & networking drinks)

This focus day will bring you four of the most high-impact people leaps being taken to build an agile, flexible and entrepreneurial organization to compete and win in a rapidly changing and an increasingly digital financial services industry.

Through a combination of thought-leader perspectives and facilitated discussions between strategic HR leaders, you will leave with connections, insights and innovative ideas you can immediately implement.

Among the leaps we’ll be putting under the spotlight:

Reimagining the Financial Services Workplace of the Future to Drive Performance and Win the Battle for Future Digital Talent
Challenging Traditional Thinking in Financial Services to Create an Agile, Flexible Workplace That Transforms Retention, Delivery and Bottom Line Impact
Building a Brand New People Strategy That Enables an Agile Company to Move Money at the Speed of Light

And among the questions we’ll be discussing:

  • What does it take to combine design thinking with agile HR to effectively prepare for the chaos of digital disruption?
  • What key elements of how we work must we totally rethink as the nature of work changes and our businesses evolve into increasingly project-based organizations?
  • What works, what doesn’t and what’s needed to deliver a truly agile culture and build an agile organization in financial services?

Or B: Transforming Talent Acquisition

Monday 15 July | 12pm – 8pm (includes lunch & networking drinks)

Among the leaps we’ll be putting under the spotlight:

Moving from Reactive to Proactive to Staff the Financial Services Workforce of the Future
How a Talent Ecosystem Identifies, Develops and Deploys Top Talent from Non-Traditional Places
How Completely Rethinking High-Volume Recruitment Has Dramatically Increased Flexibility and Added Vital Business Agility

And among the questions we’ll be discussing:

  • How do we need to radically rethink recruitment to allow us to effectively compete for the digital talent we’ll need in a future financial services industry?
  • What lessons around our employee value proposition can we adapt from the technology sector to
    allow us to leverage our own industry’s strengths and win the talent we need?
  • If we needed to double the number of people we’re hiring at twice the quality, what would we need to do differently, and why don’t we do it now?
