The SBN conference 2023 will focus on drivers and catalysts for change

Posted by Eva-Maria Fahrer on 25/05/2023 12:32

SBN has now identified some of the most relevant catalysts for change, relevant for the 2023 SBN Conference 17-18 October. We have workshopped and discussed for several months to identify relevant catalysts for change. The Core Leadership (Kjell, Nick, Dag, Svanhild, Gunn, JC, Jan Morten) and the more operative part of SBN, Didrik, Sigurd, me and Joakim have evaluated and discussed headings and description texts.
We hope to have selected the most important insights for our members' success in 2023. The “why” the “what” as well as “how” to change will be covered with reference to the drivers and catalysts for change. In addition not only the knowledge program, but also the F2F Collaboration and Knowledge Exchange, as well as all Happenings and Networking have been given an even more important role in this year's Conference.
