Workplace Wellbeing and Mental Health. There is a great deal of interest, and even more talk about the healthy workforce, but the real task is to create the kind of workplaces that we know help people to feel empowered, energised and valued. Discover what good practice really looks like.
Digitalisation and Building Community Capacity. How can we change the way teams think about services as we move towards “Digital First”, and how do we build effective approaches to service redesign? Learn from evidence-based practices in both public and private sectors.
Leading Transformation. How are effective leaders engaging their workforces in change and transformation? Be inspired by how leading public and private sector organisations are empowering ‘guerrillas’, unlocking team potential, and building creativity and innovation into the day job.
Team Performance. Leading private companies are abandoning the annual individual appraisal ritual in favour of co-created objective setting, productive reflection and coaching styles of leadership and management How can the public sector avoid being left behind?
Partnership Working and Social Innovation. Everyone talks about this but very few do it well. Real partnership is based on understanding and valuing what each partner brings – and creating new and exciting outcomes. This workshop will share clear, evidence-based guidelines and an opportunity to assess practice in your partnership.
Health and social care integration. It’s generally not working. Co-created service redesign, multi-agency teamworking and strategic alignment need a clear, shared vision. What would it look like if it was good?
£ 120 per delegate
£ 80 for Fresh Thinking Labs members

Our taster workshop on 1st May in Birmingham
Part of your job is to change things at your workplace, to improve performance, to stimulate new thinking and to enhance employee engagement. It can be hard to accomplish.
But it needn’t be that hard. Not if you learn from people who have been there before you, or even those from different organisations who are on the same journey.
That’s the message that we took to our Leading Workplace Innovation in the Public Sector taster workshop in Birmingham, an event filled with the buzz of ideas and experiences being shared by participants from organisations including North Yorkshire County Council, Lincolnshire County Council, West Midlands Employers, Warwickshire County Council, Staffordshire County Council, University of Birmingham, London Borough of Haringey, Tef Housing Association, Birmingham City Council and Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance.
