Vimla Appadoo 'Use your power to change the world'

Lead Service Designer / DigitalBridge

Keynote

The fabric of culture is shifting, now more than ever. We've been pushed to work in new ways, with new mental strain and we're learning as we go. Let's take a breather and figure out how we want this to happen, to own the process and to believe we can change the status quo to design a future we want to live in. Vimla will be talking about her Culture Design theory of change and what it means to reflect on who we are as individuals, how we work in teams and what that means for the organisations we run or find ourselves in.
