Kate Wood: Engage Your People

Technology was driving culture – now culture is driving technology..

Employee disengagement is a global issue. Only 15% of employees are engaged in their jobs (Gallup). Utilising digital transformation, Kate Wood is on a mission to change this.  Organisations with engaged employees see 17% higher productivity, 21% higher profitability, 10% higher customer satisfaction and 41% lower absenteeism.

This  session will tackle digital transformation, engagement, performance in a modern workplace.

Kate is a passionate and entertaining public speaker and promises you will leave the session armed, inspired and empowered to make changes in your workplace.

Cara Hunt & Chris Hughes: Present Pal

Present Pal is a presentation support software which acts like a set of interactive flashcards on your smartphone or tablet, integrating fully with Microsoft Powerpoint.

This session will focus on the importance of technology to help engage and support a diverse and inclusive workplace for all staff and volunteers; covering the benefits of integrating technologies into the workplace with a focus on retention and engagement.
