Optimising your learning projects using Agile approaches
Perry Timms – PTHR

In this one-hour immersive lab-type environment, Perry walked through how to map, develop and deliver learning based projects using techniques mastered in the digital technology applications and platforms world, and bring
them into the learning world. Project Constellation Maps, Problem Statements, How Might We’s; Design Sprints, Iterations, Velocity Calculations and developing MVPs might not mean much to you now, but they could help
you reimagine how you design and deliver learning in your organisation.

The business case for kindness
Joanna Suvarna, Debbie Watt and Alex Killick – #BeTheRipple movement

In this session Joanna and her team explore the vital importance of kindness, demonstrating that rather than being a ‘fluffy nice-to-have’, kindness is in fact the key foundation that’s needed for building a brighter working world. Reframing our understanding of kindness and using it as the foundation for everything we do, we can truly unleash its power and enable people to flourish at an individual, team and an organisational level, making ripples that spread far and wide.
