Track 1: Rebuilding Human Relationship

The HR department has a very vital role to play in this pandemic. The Human Resource Department must transform itself into the Human Relationship department and build mental bridges to build motivation, content, and mental agility in the minds of people.


We dedicate this track to the most important topic on “Rebuilding Human Relationship”. You will hear from many industry experts about how they have rebuilt the zeal, enthusiasm, and courage in the system. We just cannot be Agile anymore, we must be Emotionally Agile.

Track 2: Impact of technology and living Agility

Technology advancement and the pace of new technological advancements have made a huge impact across the globe across all sectors. With data as the new oil, we have developed many innovations like predictive analysis.


Organizations across the spectrum should start thinking about adapting to this new wave of technology. This track is dedicated to industry experts to share some of their thoughts on how to deal with this wave of technological change and still how to live agility in true spirit.
