Workshops and fringes

Our interactive sessions bring together partners to explore our three themes:

  • Impact & Innovation
  • Social citizens
  • Life, work & the future

Within each theme these sessions will ask and answer the questions:

  • What kind of workforce do we need?
  • What kind of leadership do we need?
  • What kind of skills do we need?
  • What kind of partnerships do we need?
  • What kind of investment do we need?
  • And how will we know we’re succeeding?

Exhibition area

The day also includes plenty space for delegates to shop around for ideas, find time to find the unexpected and be energised by chance encounters over lunch.
