Panelists included; Olympic Gold Medalist, Adrian Moorhouse MBE; former Chief Executive of Network Rail, Iain Coucher; CIO at RSA, Malcolm Whitehouse; HR Director of Tate & Lyle, Julie Smith; EMEA Region Head Global Facilities Manager at SAP, Michael Roper; and CEO of BBC Commercial projects, Chris Kane.
Quora’s Smartworking Summit offered a unique approach to tackling this challenge in an inspired ‘unplugged’ format which encouraged the speakers to talk freely and honestly with their audience.
Now that the event is over, Burning2Learn has produced a short publication to keep the discussion going!
