The HR Agility and Design Thinking Workshop with Natal Dank offers an unparalleled opportunity to learn from one of the industry's leading experts. Scheduled for February 28 and 29, 2024, at the Purpose Studio in Perth, this workshop, presented by Twenty2 Collective, is a must-attend for HR professionals seeking to innovate and excel.
Natal is the second global thought leader to partner with Twenty2 Collective after Agile Leadership Journey’s Pete Behrens flew in from the US in May this year. Behrens, a regular keynote on the global Agile events calendar, hosted a two-day workshop during a promotional tour to Perth.
Agile HR pioneer Natal is a pioneer in Agile HR and business agility and author of Agile HR: Delivering Value in a Changing World of Work. “This learning experience brings to life my book - Agile HR: Deliver Value in a Changing World of Work – and reflects my years of experience working with HR leaders and teams through PXO Culture and the HR Trend Institute,” Natal said. “The workshop is perfect for whole HR teams who want to learn together and excellent for HR and people leaders ready to increase their team’s impact.”
Twenty2 Collective co-owner Marcus Ward thanked Natal for bringing her work to Australia from her home in Scotland. Marcus said the workshop would be a tremendous experience for Perth’s people professionals.
“The HR Agility and Design Thinking Workshop is more than a learning opportunity; it's a transformative experience that will equip HR professionals with the tools and strategies to lead in the new era of HR,” said Marcus.
