ACMP UK Virtual Panel Discussion: How do we turn the dial on delivering virtual change management in the current Covid-19 environment?


Over the past few months we have experienced monumental transformational change, on a global scale that has not occurred in decades. A key question on people’s minds at the moment has become, “What will be the ‘new’ normal, and how do we deliver change?”  

We have brought together a wide range of different perspectives and experiences with industry experts from HR, technology, and workplace. We will be taking a look at how we can keep people engaged in this new environment and going forward. So come join us on Wednesday, 7th of October from 1-2pm UK time to hear from our panel of experts.
