We all have our preferred style of learning. That’s why we’ve made sure there’s a selection of session formats to choose from at this year’s Festival of Work to help you stay energised and engaged.

See which style suits you and start planning your session attendance today.

Learning from the experts – get ready to be provoked, inspired and wowed by authors, experts and thought-leaders. Fascinating talks in lecture style that will keep you on the edge of your chair.

The future is now – explore how organisations are creating good work and good business, and the strategies that work in  specific contexts. Learn from their successes and pitfalls and take away tips that you can apply in your own organisations.

No boring panel discussions – take a driving seat in the discussion through our interactive event app. Ask the panel your own questions directly from your smartphone and vote those that are most relevant to you – they will be answered first.

Ignite your knowledge and enthusiasm – don’t miss these fast, short and fun presentations from practitioners and experts. Different perspectives followed by open debates to provoke your thinking, challenge your perceptions and spark new ideas.

Discuss and learn from your pears – take the lead in facilitated round-table discussions themed around the biggest organisational challenges of the moment. Exchange challenges, thoughts and ideas, draw on the table cloth and make long-lasting connections.

"As an L&D professional this is a quality event to either challenge or validate your thinking and to consider future strategic innovations for our business."
