Upcoming Leadership Events

Are you a Director or Senior Leader? Join our regular forums to raise standards in customer operations together. The Forum holds events for leaders to network and hear from inspirational speakers throughout the year.

This Autumn The Forum will be hosting a series of Strategic virtual round-table discussions designed to develop thought leadership and best practice material. Our intention is to develop thought leadership around future workforce strategies, taking a look at steps taken during COVID-19 and the transition to the future. Each session will be recorded, with an edited transcription published and shared around the wider group and community. Future sessions will develop previous discussions and bring in new questions. Each month a new article will be published designed to be built upon exploring new different, but connected, topics. This will lead to a comprehensive article reflecting the comments of all sessions. Each discussion group will be kept small, to give each attendee the opportunity to contribute and answer the key questions, whilst allowing time for the topic area to grow.

The traditional working environment has been challenged, how will future workforce strategies look, thinking of the working environment, including: property, office-homeworking hybrids; suitable technology and business culture?

Strategy & Leadership Autumn Programme - Part 1

Virtually on 9th September, 09:30 - 11:30

What will the office look like? How will property use change? How long will this take?

Working from home, to “keep the lights on”, has in some cases forced working in a way that was previously seen as not possible, not a priority, or not aligned to business values. Necessity and the need to working from home has challenged this. There is now an opportunity to reshape the working environment. What could this look like, what are the risks, costs and pitfalls to avoid?

Strategy & Leadership Autumn Programme - Part 2

Virtually on 8th October, 09:30 - 11:30

How do we create a genuinely agile workforce? How can homeworking become a sustainable scheduling strategy? What does an office-homeworking hybrid look like for you?

The flexibility and agility of our business practices have been challenged, customer journeys have been redesigned and internal processes have been changed. Do we just return to how things used to be done, or do we rebuild a new way. To deliver the business strategy we need the right supporting workforce strategy, what could/should this look like, what shouldn’t happen?

Strategy & Leadership Autumn Programme - Part 3

Virtually On 11th November, 09:30 - 11:30

What technology is required and what is currently missing to support the future working environment?

Whatever our future workforce strategy looks like, technology will play a huge part to support this. How has your current technology infrastructure supported you during disaster recovery, what has been key to current operations, what has been missing? What new technology needs to be considered?

Strategy & Leadership Autumn Programme - Part 4

Virtually On 10th December, 09:30 - 11:30

How will the business culture change? What needed to stop, and this have been a great opportunity to change? What needs to remain, however it may be difficult to keep?

Every business has been impacted by COVID-19, as every employee life has changed due to lockdown measures and social distancing. How has the business culture changed or adapted to new working conditions? How could/should the business culture evolve, or change to thrive in the new normal?
