Conferences & Offsites
Conferences and off-sites can be the perfect way to introduce the inclusion and diversity topics to a new audience- or to reignite and challenge the thinking of these already working with them.
Our top class strategic facilitators listen to you to discover what outcomes are needed and then co create the right solutions for you.
Whether you are looking for a fully designed event or an off-site that drives the thinking of teams around inclusion ahead, we can help.
From two hours to two full days we bring our combination of practical diversity work and aspirational inclusion approach to your issue.
Many of the teams we work with begin with some scene setting and icebreaker activities, and move onto sessions designed to have them explore inclusion within their own teams. We often spend time drawing the very specific line between their inclusive aspirations and the reality of achieving their strategy.
As experts in bias we can help them uncover their own, and those rife within the organisation, and explore the many practical ways these can be reduced.
Our skilled consultants may also help you draw up a timeline plan to help drive activity, and a performance measurement system to ensure progress happens.
Our off-site team are experienced strategists, culture change experts and facilitators with deep understanding of the reality of your business. So whether you would like us to design the whole thing or see us as an addition to your agenda we can help, globally.
From a major keynote to 10,000 to break out workshops for just 25, from moderating panels to planning and delivering your whole Inclusion Conference, PDT can offer a variety of approaches across the globe. Our specialists are some of the most memorable speakers crafting amazing speeches and running engaging workshops that have attendees buzzing about the impacts for weeks and months to come. We bring a radical and refreshing new approach – introducing courageous conversations that challenge your audience’s thinking around inclusion, as well as deeper discussions in a multitude of subjects from neuro-science to bi-sexuality, non-dominant groups to privilege, ‘power groups’ to race, politics, mental health and gender.
Presentations vary from hard hitting Inclusion as a Strategic Driver, which ensures your delegates are left in no doubt about what the risks are of not creating an inclusive environment, to the From Unconscious Bias to Conscious Inclusion, an amazing 90 min session that attendees tell us “haunts their dreams”! Our Inclusive Behaviours World Café session can bring new life to old thinking around inclusion and have your entire room engaged in self-assessment and action planning that will make a huge difference in the way inclusion is seen back at the office.
Our latest work on “Toxic Masculinity” and how we are turning the power groups away from the diversity agendas are engaging audiences with the conversation in new ways. We can even engage our actor/facilitators to mingle ahead of the session bringing learning that is personal and fun.
Our own Founder and Chair, Angela Peacock, is a thought leader in the diversity and inclusion arena and advises boards, executive teams and governments on the broad topic of inclusion and the specifics around diversity. A strategist at heart she brings all arguments back to the business case, yet amazes audiences with easy to understand evidence of their own biases and how their own fears may well stand in the way of embracing difference. She tells her own stories and brings the whole topic of inclusion to life. Her latest presentations include “The bias that can prevent your business success” to “A new way to explore an old problem – pushing the boundaries on our thinking around diversity and inclusion.”
