Henley Forum meeting, 11 May 2017

Empowering conversation

Conversation is not a nice-to-have but a critical competence of a 21st-century organisation. But often we take it for granted and fail to capitalise on the power of conversation to drive performance, transfer learning, build relationships, make better decisions, innovate and more!

Our first event in our 2017/18 programme explores this important theme to help you develop new actionable insights. Join us to explore how you can empower conversation in your organisation. View full Agenda.

We will share ideas, experiences and tools through a range of speaker and workshop sessions. Helping you to enhance performance and unlock potential in your own organisations.

In brief:

Dr Sharon Varney will warm up your thinking on today’s theme. David Gurteen of Gurteen Knowledge will convene a Knowledge Café – using conversation to help you explore how to empower conversation in your own organisation. Fiona Hiscocks and Jim Scopes from Sparknow will consider the issue of speaking up – empowering more difficult conversations. And Vicky Short and Monica Danese-Perrin from Lloyds Banking Group will lead us through our Members’ Showcase. They will share how they put people at the heart of their work in embedding Knowledge Management into a fast paced Financial Services organisation that is in the midst of a large scale digital transformation. Plus Dr Christine Van Winkelen will be on hand to offer some signposts to help you navigate Henley Forum content related to today’s theme.
