2017 Annual Conference 

26th and 27th April

Sunningdale Park, Ascot, Berkshire



In a world where each of us is experiencing an increase in complexity and uncertainty, stress and busyness are getting in the way of learning needed.  OD has a role to play in being a catalyst for change; creating safe places to explore, sense-make, learn, build relationships and move to action. How could you and your OD colleagues step up to the challenges faced by our clients’ organisations and our local communities?

This conference offers a stimulating blend of dialogue, theory, and practice to create a forum for meaningful discussion and practical action to shape the current and future role of OD in our world.

With a variety of formats, this year’s conference will provide you with:

  • fresh ideas to challenge and stimulate your thinking
  • the opportunity to come together as a community to meet and exchange ideas and energy with other practitioners in your field
  • discover what is working in different organisations
  • some practical ideas which you can apply to your practice
  • a format which will ground the new ideas in your practice in a concrete way, and give you something to experiment with back at work

 Our keynote sessions include:

  • Things That are Working For Us – OD in our current world
  • Our Future World - what are our challenges, what do we need to learn, and how will we step up to the plate?
  • OD from a Systems Engineer’s Perspective
  • Digital Leadership and Transformation

New to Field

To welcome those new to, or on the fringes of, the OD field, a discounted conference fee is being offered. These participants will attend an extra pre-conference day on April 25th.  The day is designed to have a series of formal and informal conversations.  We will have a blend of presentations, workshop sessions and a panel discussion. Details here.

Evening Seminar

In this two-hour, interactive workshop, Kate Cowie will offer a framework for the human development journey – a journey of many stages of self-identity and self-growth – by drawing on the wisdom of the sages and storytellers of the past, and the discoveries and models of modern researchers and theorists.  Details here.
