Human-Centric Sessions

HSE 3.0 is designed to engage us as industry professionals and as people. We want you to experience the human; to explore new perspectives and bring new thinking back to your business. Here's how...

1-2-4-ALL SESSION

The Aim

To engage all participants to generate better ideas, faster – opening up conversations on a shared challenge.

How It Works:

A shared challenge will be posed as a question. Attendees have one minute of silent reflection, followed by two minutes in pairs to discuss. Ideas are then developed in teams of four, for four minutes. Finally, a spokesperson from each group will put forward one important idea to the entire group. Here, speed trumps deliberation.

TRIZ SESSION

The Aim

Spread ideas, make connections and learn how new ideas can be adapted into your day-to-day context.

How It Works:

1. Attendees are split into small groups, writing a list of everything they could do to ensure their top objective has the worst possible outcome, to share it with the group

2.The group review the list and highlight anything that’s currently being done that could even slightly resemble what’s on the list

3. With brutal honesty, a second list containing all counter-productive activities/procedures – and their associated impacts – is created and discussed

4. With all skeletons now out, each group explore which activities or behaviours need to be stopped, and how they’d go about doing so.

HEARD, SEEN & RESPECTED

The Aim

To practice deeper listening and empathy with peers, building trust and ‘cultural climate’ through listening and storytelling.

How It Works:

Grouping into pairs, attendees will each tell a story of when they were not heard, seen or respected. Each side is asked to listen without trying to fix anything or make judgement, practicing HSR. Pairs will then form smaller groups for reflection, looking at the ‘What’ (what happened), the ‘So What’ (the importance) and finally, the ‘Now What’ (actions moving forward).

OXFORD-STYLE DEBATING

Challenging the status-quo and generating effective critical thinking, a moderator and two debaters for common opposing viewpoints will navigate a pertinent industry topic, with full audience participation.

SHIFT & SHARE SESSION

The Aim

Spread ideas, make connections and learn how new ideas can be adapted into your day-to-day context.

How It Works:

will be split into smaller groups and experience 10 minute presentations – with Q&A and feedback – from each of our partner companies, on something new or innovative that may be of value to the group. But unlike most presentations, this isn’t about products. It’s about ideas; ideas that shift perceptions and share a vision.

INTERACTIVE SKILLS & TRAINING

The Aim

Learn about (and develop) skills outside of our industry-led sessions, to take back to the office and home. Including:

HEALTH & WELLBEING SESSIONS

Enhance mindfulness with group Hatha Yoga, Om chanting sessions and physical wellbeing bootcamps, all with on-site mindfulness and wellbeing coaches.
