Working Groups

'Solutions Begin With A Conversation'

Working Groups Overview

They are focused on a single topic aimed at functional leaders. The event is typically held at a member site, including a site tour of the facility.

The agenda includes a presentation on the topic by the host site or another member organisation, Q&A and multiple breakout discussions.

Attendees will share their experiences and ask questions of others on how they have tackled the topic being discussed. Participants leave with key insights into what other organisations are doing, and armed with that knowledge; they will return to your organisation to implement key ideas they have gained. It may also result in individuals connecting further with others they met on the day to dig deeper into the issues.

No structured training is included in these events, and Working Groups are available as live and online events.
