Thematic stakeholder workshop

The thematic stakeholder workshops are at the core of the conference to be held at the "Lighthouse" Arts & Conference Centre in Poole, UK on 18 & 19 May 2017.


There will be 28 separate workshop sessions delivered over the 1.5 days of the conference, during 4 separate parallel sessions – 3 parallel sessions will take place on Day 1 and one parallel session will be on Day 2 (please see programme outline). Of these, 26 workshop sessions will follow a core theme with a standard workshop format, while 2 sessions with ‘pitch presentations’ will allow for a number of presentations to be delivered. All 28 sessions are related to one of the four core conference themes, although some overlap of these themes is expected:

  • Innovation and growth
  • People and skills
  • Safety and security
  • Sustainability and governance

The 28 workshops will take place in parallel:

  • Session 1: Thursday 18 May – 13.30-15.00
  • Session 2: Thursday 18 May – 15.15-16.45
  • Session 3: Thursday 18 May – 17.00-18.30
  • Session 4: Friday 19 May – 08.30-10.00

A Workshop Summary and Reflections Session will take place on Day 2 of the conference, this plenary session will report on key messages and insights of the workshops.
