Defaults - established ways of doing things - are an important element of any enterprise. We need them. They save us a heap of time, and make us much more efficient but most organisations have become cursed with efficiency and default thinking. We’re all so busy and so what happens is more of the same. We seek quick fixes and familiar solutions that tick the right boxes and save us time - but in doing so lead us closer down the path toward irrelevance. To stay relevant we must know when, and how, to disrupt default thinking so that we may pioneer new strategies beyond the established path...

"Only one thing is certain: things are going to get even more uncertain. Instinctively you know this. Nearly everything is changing, and faster than ever before. Conventional attempts to tackle these challenges are typically fixed and rigid. To build for the future of work, we need something different". - Dr Jason Fox

Businesses all over the globe are beginning to introduce a social agenda into their business planning. A social agenda is anything a business does to support the community. Social agendas are giving businesses a strong competitive edge, a better brand and are helping inspire direction and increase staff morale and teamwork. Doing well is also becoming fused with doing good but what are the best ways to implement a social agenda? 

Canberra leaders will present case studies of successful social agendas in action so be prepared to take notes and be inspired.
