    2021 People and Culture Network Conference: 'The People Experience'

    "In May 2021, over 80 LG Professionals SA members from across the state attended the 2021 People and Culture Network Conference ‘The People Experience’. This year’s event focused on the importance of understanding the impact of creating the right People Experience in our organisations. As we all strive to deliver value for our communities, being able to put our customers at the heart of everything we do is only possible when we invest in our people by creating environments where they are able to grow and flourish.

    With a stellar line up of speakers including Guy Newman who captivated the audience talking about Bouncing Back and Thinking For Success, Matt Hobby sharing insights into Attracting Talent, Now and Into the Future, and Julie Cunningham’s insights on Culture is a Complex System, the day also provided a well-deserved opportunity for members of the People and Culture Network to take some time to invest in themselves, reconnect with each other and add some amazing learnings to their toolkits. The day also featured two great panel discussions with members of our sector sharing their people experiences, and all of this was expertly facilitated by our emcee for the day, Peter Bice. The conference closed on an absolute high with Kate Burr, a humour coach, making us laugh while learning about High Performance Humour in the Workplace.

    The day would not have been possible without the team at LG Professionals SA who work so tirelessly to create such amazing development opportunities for our network."
