What will we talk about?

Being involved in meaningful work is something we all want.

The psychiatrist Viktor Frankl famously described how the innate human quest for meaning is so strong that, even in terrible circumstances, people seek out their purpose in life.

But, we can all get lost in the noise, speed and deliverables of the day to day work that we often forget about why we are working on a project in the first place. This results in feeling purposeless, stressed, unhealthy and in a state of “sleepwalking”.

What if we could create a project ecosystem that encouraged people to thrive? Or identify core practices to help people do the work that matters? What if we could define and practice "meaning" for self, team, project and business to support continuous learning and strategic clarity for all?

Dan will explore these questions and share best practices learned from years of research with companies around the world.

Who is this event for?

The themes are applicable to anyone who wonders “why are we doing this?”. Anyone from designers to developers and managers; from government to education and corporates.
