The group is an opportunity to look to the future, to understand better the strategic drivers that will shape our OD activities.

Our group facilitators: Emma Ogden & Emma Sawula

Who should attend:

This is a group for SUMS members only

Why should you attend:

SUMS Consultants Emma Ogden, Tom Owen-Smith and Principal Consultant Lucy Dixon will introduce a discussion of three critical areas influencing a University of the Future; People, Sustainability and Technology. Through World Café-style discussions, delegates will be given the opportunity to explore these themes further, with consideration to their own institution and associated strengths, challenges and opportunities for focus.

We're also excited that Charlotte Bonner, CEO of EAUC will be joining us to provide a sector-level view of the present and future of sustainability in UK universities.

Associate Consultant Emma Sawula and Emma Ogden will lead a Chatham-House style discussion with delegates to consider their own skills and opportunities for further development to support areas of institutional design, development, and change. This will have a particular focus on their role as internal consultants and how they build successful and influential relationships to enable successful advocacy for principle-led design and change to meet a future state.
