Synopsis:

BCS Elite and the Institute of Directors present the latest in their long-running series of joint biennial unconferences at Oracle’s offices in Reading. They are joining forces to allow an open exchange of current best practices in collaboration and teamwork. Two highly experienced professionals will help us to develop ideas and strategies which will be useful not just in the workplace, but in any area of our lives where teamwork is important. Both of our speakers, Jacqui Hogan and Rod Willis, have published and run courses on the topic.

As always, we shall begin with half an hour of networking and refreshments, after which our speakers will talk for 15 minutes each to spark ideas for discussion in groups. After discussing the aspects of collaboration that interest us, in groups of our choosing, we shall share our ideas with everyone else. You can update your CPD profile using BCS free tool.
