Our final speakers were Laura Copas and Steve Sewell from Get Real Change. Their fascinating talk covered the performance paradox and how performance levels alter in relation to the change we experience. Alongside a fabulous example given by Steve about how we slowly accept and embrace change, they expanded on Get Real Change’s success in the public sector in enabling change and transformation. 

The evening ended with a trip to the local pub and an opportunity for further networking and learning. Our biggest event so far and the start of things to come in 2020.
