Workday Live Week

Workday Live Week is one of our favourite events for our UK and Irish customers. It is hosted after each of our annual releases, to give all the latest information and product updates to every one of our customers. 

Throughout the event we also have our UK and Irish customers taking the stage and sharing their experiences with the Workday product. If you would like to take part next year, please speak to your customer success manager. 

All the recordings from our 2021R2 event this October can be found below - along with the ondemand sessions from the previous two events.

Workday Live Week is a great opportunity for our customers to get together and network with peers in a friendly, informal environment. We plan to host our next event for 2022R1 in Spring 2022 as an ‘in-person’ event in London. Please stay tuned to save the date!

A look at how adopting new technologies in finance enable agility in this new era of work
Demos
  • COVID-19 was an eye-opener for many CFOs. While it exposed fault lines in the office of finance’s current operating model, it also proved that bold change can happen quickly and effectively. Business as usual no longer exists, and the leading organisations embraced technology and data to reinvent core processes and adopt new ways of working. But this has not come without its challenges, as finance has to provide rapid insight while maintaining financial control. Join this session to hear from Rob Scott, CFO at Keygroup, discuss the ways finance is using this opportunity to leverage greater influence – and remerge as a more agile and digitally-enabled function.
