We look forward to having you join us at Illuminate, Workday’s executive ideas exchange and networking opportunity, where the focus will be on strategies for building stronger businesses by Leading with Purpose. We'll consider sustainability, technology and people, to identify opportunities for growth and uncover ways to make lasting changes for your organisation.
Illuminate is one part of our commitment to helping you achieve meaningful change across your organisation. It will be a valuable opportunity for robust peer-to-peer discussions with fellow executives who are facing the same challenges as you are.
The disruptions of recent years have accelerated change way faster than would otherwise have been expected. Business must keep up and be ready to respond with agility to changing customer expectations and organisational demands. What better way to address today’s challenges than to hear how others have met them, and share suggestions from your own experience.
