A bit more about us
London is a hub for technology driven change and has been typically focused on Finance and Insurance sectors. As technology innovation accelerates, the breadth of organisations undergoing change has similarly expanded. The London Chapter regularly attracts prominent speakers and organisations that we are fortunate to work with, for example, HSBC, Google, Atos Consulting to name a few.
Our events range from human behaviour to organisational culture and every flavour of change in-between. Aside from speaker/interest led discussions we often complement this with exposure to new tools and techniques to support the ongoing development of change professionals.
We are an active chapter and you can be assured of a warm welcome.
