A Movement for Organisational Change

         The Nature of Work Festival 2021 has been forced to cancel | Please read below for further information


Due to the ongoing and ever-changing travel regulations presented by COVID-19 and the Delta variant, we are unfortunately forced to cancel the inaugural Nature of Work Festival that was scheduled to take place 21-23 September 2021 live from etc.venues St. Paul’s and streaming globally.

Our aim was to create a living case study for senior figures from across the world of work to come together in a hybrid environment, built for networking, discovery, and relationship-building. We want to ensure the widest possible impact, whilst bringing you together safely, and feel that taking a pause to allow for travel restrictions to further ease allows us to do just that.

We did explore other ways to allow the NOW Festival to come to life, including a pivot to a fully virtual event, however the importance of live human interaction and collaboration is the driving force behind the festival.

Whilst we won’t see you in person at the event, we implore you to continue exploring new ways to create positive change at your organisations. And this starts with having the right resources.

Our strategic event partner, Digital Workplace Group, is an industry expert in digital and hybrid workplaces, and offers plenty of learning tools like a blog, podcasts, reports and of course, The Nature of Work book.

We thank you all for your understanding at this time - to stay updated with any future information on the Nature of Work Festival, please subscribe to our emails here and/or follow our LinkedIn page.

Stories from nature provide lessons for how organisations can thrive.​

Organisations are living, dynamic systems, that thrive through a shared purpose, healthy relationships and organic spaces and structures, yet we behave as though they are rigid machines.

"I am delighted to have been asked to speak at The Nature of Work Festival! It is a unique moment in time for global business leaders to come together to rethink, rewrite and rewire the world of work for a living age. Through my participation, I hope to raise awareness of stagnant processes that might be slowing your organisation down and provide a unique perspective on how to change course immediately. It’s time to discover our deeper purpose as a working world and chart a new path to renewed success."

- Lord Seb Coe
