WHAT IS THE CHANGE YOU WANT TO CREATE?

The world is changing fast – in technology, in politics and in society. That means we’ve got some big challenges and awesome opportunities ahead of us. And by extending our thinking, we can take advantage of disruption and make positive change stick.

Whose change is it anyway will take you on the journey of how to build a people movement, sharpening your understanding of who’s involved, tackle the challenge of when leaders go missing in action, keeping your people engaged through the disruption, how to tackle teaching new capability and finally bringing it all together into your professional practice.

Canberra’s Convergence Conference 2018 program runs for one day with two keynotes and 12 masterclasses.

We’ve made it easy for you to choose what you want to learn about, and we’ve created it to offer you flexibility and value while ensuring you get time to connect with our change community. You will walk away with presentations, videos, and the opportunity to connect with your fellow travellers long after the event through our participants portal.
