Henley Forum meeting 27 June 2017



Building connections

It’s a connected world. In 2017, it’s easier than ever to connect with people far and wide. Yet building human connections to enhance knowledge, enable learning and enact change in organisations remains challenging.

The second event in our 2017/18 programme explores this important theme to help you develop new actionable insights. Join us to explore how you can build connections 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.

It’s a practical day, packed full of good things. We expect it to be both useful and enjoyable. And we hope you’ll join us.

In brief:

After a short introduction to the day from Henley Forum’s Director, Dr Sharon VarneyKatherine Woods from Meeting Magic will support us building personal connections during the event. Katherine will be demonstrating practical approaches throughout the day.  Chris Collison will then take us on a practical, illustrated tour of organizational (social) network analysis. Julian Burton and Elinor Rebeiro from Delta7 Change argue that tools that increase connection, meaning and quality of relationships are a win/win/win for everyone. They’ll take us through some engaging, practical exercises that can support and cultivate human connection.

After lunch, you’ll have the opportunity to ‘build the bridge from both sides’ in a mini-simulation led by Philippa Hale from Open Limits. Jonathan Gordon-Till, Global KM Champion, Mondelez International, will share some practical experience of the human factors in tacit knowledge transfer. Then Katherine Woods will return to help us wrap up the day.

We will also have some talented students from Henley’s MSc in Entrepreneurship with us during the day – helping us make more of our social media connections within the Henley Forum.
