Arrival and Networking Lunch

What better way to kick off your exclusive Executive Programme experience than by getting to know your peers and networking with our Workday executives over lunch?


Welcome to the Executive Programme

We’ll begin with a few words from Angelique De Vries-Schipperijn, EMEA President at Workday. She'll be joined by Broadcaster and TV presenter, Natasha Kaplinsky OBE, and you’ll be given an outline of what you can expect from the day and hear a bit more about our theme for this year’s event: ‘How the future works’.


Trust in the Digital Age

Trust is both the foundation and the result of strong relationships. It’s fundamental to meaningful interactions with customers, but there are misconceptions about how trust really works. How do you earn trust in the early stages of a relationship and sustain it over time? What’s the difference between loyalty and trust? How does trust work online versus face-to-face? And does transparency lead to more trust? In this session, Rachel Botsman, Global Trust Expert, will help you rethink what trust is and why it’s so critical in the digital age.


Making the Future Work

Prepare to get innovative with our panel – a meeting of top-tier trusted partners. Guided by Rogerio Almeida, Global Alliances Director, EMEA at Workday, this session offers a direct line to industry leaders who will candidly discuss pain points and share best practices on how they’re leading in the future of work. Discover cross-industry insights, hear about emerging trends and learn actionable strategies. What’s more, you can join in with the live Q&A and tap into the leaders’ wealth of experience.
