Time: 9:30am – 11:00am

Synopsis: Heavy, cumbersome transformation programmes have no place in a post-COVID world. The pandemic has shown us there are better ways to deliver change.

This session gives you the tools to re-invent how you deliver change, develop the skills of your team and to feel excited, not daunted, by change.

Nicola will share her clients’ successes and lessons to explore:

  • The myths about large scale change – you might have been sucked in by some of these…
  • Simple techniques to deliver benefits faster, cheaper or both!
  • How to deliver change with fewer people – without sacrificing precious results
  • Creating continuous change momentum – no more erratic peaks and troughs

About Nicola: Nicola Hopes is an executive coach and change management consultant who’s worked with leading organisations around the world to help their businesses thrive through the pandemic.

Over the last 22 years she has worked with global leaders from organisations such as the Co-operative Group, Knight Frank and Brittany Ferries to deliver inspiring leadership and lasting change with award-winning results.
