The renowned Synergy conference will take place at the Stadium of Light on Wednesday 20th November (5.30pm to 9.30pm). The thought provoking theme of the Synergy event will be “Striving and thriving in this crazy VUCA world!” (volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous).
Stephen Carver from Cranfield School of Management and Lysa Morrison, Director of Transformation at Cintra HR & Payroll, will take to the stage to offer their expertise on VUCA. In addition, the Teesside Enactus, Teesside University’s student society for social enterprise, will be showcasing some of their key projects.
Attendees will also be given the opportunity to network with local and regional businesses and meet event sponsors including The Facilitation Partnership, Inky Thinking, Spitfire, Vantec, Big Picture Learning, Mosaic Partners, The Bayard Partnership and Cintra HR & Payroll.
Dave Bewick, Branch Chair at PMI UK North East, comments: “This is the fifth time that we have held the Synergy event in Sunderland and it looks set to be as popular as ever. It’s exciting that we can be part of the 50th anniversary events and it will be a great opportunity for our members and other guests to celebrate.”
