Strategic People Conference 2019:
Thoughtful leadership for a healthy culture

Thursday, March 7, 2019 9:30am
America Square Conference Centre, London

Welcome to Strategic People 2019: Thoughtful leadership for a healthy culture

The past year has been one of turmoil, both politically and socially, with Brexit uncertainty and high profile cases of abuse, leading to the “Me Too” movement.

The world of work and volunteering is inevitably impacted by both the external and organisational environments. Leaders need to work hard to build a safe and open culture in which people can thrive.

This year’s conference covers many contributory factors, and shares practical steps to take back to your organisation. Hear the keynote address from Girish Menon, Chief Executive of ActionAid UK, and join 4 workshops from this year’s selection.

We hope you’ll join us!

“Cannot believe I’ve never been to this before! Loved it and made lots of new connections”

“This is the first Strategic People event I have attended, will definitely come back next year”

“Really pleased I encouraged colleagues to come”

Keynote Speaker

He has worked in social development for three decades, starting his career with the Aga Khan Rural Support Programme, an Indian NGO, and followed this with stints at ActionAid, Plan India and DfID India.

As WaterAid’s deputy CEO and Director of International Programmes, he held responsibility of supporting their work in sub-Saharan Africa and south Asia.
