About this Keynote
Teams are nothing new, but they are starting to look different. The words we’re now using to describe teams - self-organising, autonomous, fluid, temporary, remote - indicate a more flexible, and often fast-paced, approach. But has our thinking evolved as much as it needs to keep up with technology, the need for innovation and the demands we have for a modern workplace?
We need a new understanding of what makes teams work, how to build them and how to keep them going. This talk will cover how to build happy, engaged and thriving teams in times of change.
