2017 Open Events
February 22nd-23rd February, Nottingham
E.ON: Diversity, Inclusion and Culture

EON is one of the UK's leading power and gas companies - generating electricity, and retailing power and gas. The company has been passionate about Diversity and Inclusion for many years and has won several awards for its initiatives in this area. During this event E.ON will examine the question: “how do you embed Diversity and Inclusion in the very DNA of an organisation – and reap the resulting benefits in terms of enhanced engagement and business performance?”
March 8th-9th March, Copenhagen
Two day event: Collaborative Workplaces of the Future with the Danish Technological Institute & Novozymes
Denmark’s capital has become an innovation hotspot and host to some of the world’s most innovative and creative companies. Inspired by exciting companies and leading experts we will immerse ourselves in an intensive two-day programme featuring speakers from IKEA, Hitachi, Copenhagen Institute for Future Studies, ISS, VELUX and more. We will network and learn how to make our workplaces more collaborative and engaged in creating innovations that excite our customers, including interactive learning sessions and hands-on workshops.

Organisation Design at Proekspert
In 2014 Estonian software development company Proekspert announced that it had become a manager-free, flat organisation… and won first place at the ‘Employer of Your Dreams’ 2014 competition in the business sector category. Staff are invited to “organise your own work, choose your own tools, and communicate directly with your clients”. So how do you embed – and sustain – such a change?

NB: timing and content of events may be subject to change.

In Person Labs in 2017

Fresh Thinking Labs members also enjoy unique opportunities to form In Person Labs, which are closed groups of circa 15 companies focused on a specific theme or geographical location. These groups meet three or four times a year, typically in members’ workplaces, enabling the host to showcase good practices and gain support from other participants as ‘critical friends’. Fresh Thinking Labs Members join In Person Labs either at a reduced subscription fee or free of charge, depending on their category of membership.
