Annual Conference

Conference Banner 2016 register

The overall theme of the conference is ‘OD in Action: Influence and Impact' and we are delighted that Gervase Bushe will be joining us to follow up on his excellent Skype last year and leading us in some application of Dialogic OD by applying it to some real live organisational cases brought by participants.  His session will be using an approach called Organisational Kaleidoscope and will include 5 or 6 expert perspectives.

Also, Dr Mee-Yan Cheung Judge will speak on the Future of the Organisation and our closing keynote speakers will be Christine Oliver and Martin Miksits from the Systemic Development Partnership, who will present a session on Reflexivity in Action.

Feedback from last year said that you wanted us to open up the space more so we will also be making the space for everyone to contribute to shaping the agenda in real time using a modified ‘open space’. The exciting modification is that we will be ‘opening the space’ early on line so that people can announce what they are thinking of bringing and we can engage in a conversation about it before we even kick off.
