Deep Dives

Parte 6parte 7

What is a Deep Dive?

Breakfast deep dives are 90 minute interactive sessions which take place before the main conference begins on both days. These are attended by smaller groups of people, who are both senior and focused within this specific area of HR transformation. Everyone who takes part is proactively looking to make change a reality, which makes for a lively discussion.

Each of the two deep dives will address different themes but will follow the Discover, Debate and Action format replicated elsewhere in the agenda. Each deep dive is facilitated by a pair of thought leaders who not only share their experience, but also engage in a disruptive discussion throughout the session.

Deep dives represent the perfect way to kick off the day for those who want to immerse themselves in the subject matter and make their time out of the office really count.
