Duration 3 Hours

We are pleased to announce the next QA seminar is dedicated to a present-day challenge many organisations are facing - how to deliver a successful change initiative? We will ask and answer the exciting question - what could be achieved, in the context of change, if everyone makes just 1% of positive difference in their performance?

This seminar will share insights into the simple things we need to consider when we embark upon a change. QA's Learning Programme Director, Siobhan Merrion, will talk about change from an academic and a practical perspective. Please come along prepare to join in!

You will also have an opportunity to network with attendees from other organisations facing similar change challenges to your own.

Target Audience

This seminar would be ideal for People and Change Managers, Business Transformation Managers, Change Champions and any manager involved in implementing a change initiative. It would be useful for those individuals who are about to be involved in a new change programme or who are already managing a change programme. It will also be ideal for anyone who is interested in discussing the challenges change can bring.
