Creating Space for People to Be Awesome: Highland Fling Sessions

by Meri in Conferences, Diversity, Leadership, Management, Personal Development, Presentations

Today I was in Edinburgh speaking at Highland Fling: Sessions. It was a very enjoyable day, with a theme of “in the trenches”, i.e. how we get things done day-by-day.

My talk centred around people management and inclusion, on what people need to get & stay motivated in their work, and how to make our spaces more inclusive. The slides are embedded here or can be viewed directly on Slideshare.
