About the event

Tech Futures Lab has partnered with market leading workforce specialist Lee Hecht Harrison to bring you a workshop focused on how to be successful in leading during times of organisational change.

Our expert facilitators, Frances Valintine from Tech Futures Lab and Sake Hitman from Lee Hecht Harrison, will share key insights and strategies on:

  • the importance of leadership and communications during organisational change,

  • how leaders can build and sustain employee engagement and productivity,

  • how leaders can navigate the new world and innovate, as our business practices are changing.


By the end of the workshop, you will have gained an understanding of:

  • the trends and context of the environment in which you lead,

  • what it means to be a leader, and for you to take appropriate action to engage and guide your teams through the stages of change,

  • the importance of planning and conducting individual conversations and team meetings to help facilitate change at an individual and team level,

  • how to create an action plan for yourself and for leading and engaging individuals and teams through ongoing change.


You will walk away from this workshop with a roadmap on how to take your team and your organisations to new heights.
