Tackling three themes of Insight, Inclusion and Inspiration, our speakers (including TED veterans and NYT best-selling authors) will introduce the high-level ideas, and Peakon customers will discuss their personal experiences in applying them. Our agenda for the day will both challenge you, and provide the opportunity to learn from the experiences (and pitfalls) of other business leaders.
Ultimately, we created Belong to establish a community of intellectually curious, like-minded individuals. Throughout the day, networking opportunities, workshops, and breakout sessions with the Peakon team, will give you the strategies, tools – and connections – to develop a high-performance, people-first culture.
You will hear from speakers including:
The man who created Information Is Beautiful and Knowledge Is Beautiful sees his role as information design and data-journalism. In his presentations, David shows how we can tell stories with big data sets by transforming them into simple diagrams that tease out previously unseen patterns and make powerful connections.
