It's that time of year when we're privileged to gather for SCNetwork's AGM and talk about the transitions, direction, and goals of the organization, and how we can best benefit from these. This is your chance to meet and hear from our new president, Suanne Nielsen, who is wrapping up the Discovery Phase of her Listening Tour by hosting four focus groups in September - 2 with our regular members, 1 with CHROs, and 1 with our corporate subscribers.

As Suanne launches into the second step of her SCNetwork strategy refresh – The Definition Phase, we’d like to thank all members who have responded to her Listening Tour survey. Your insights are critical to shaping the future of SCNetwork. We also encourage others to participate in this survey. This will help Suanne represent your views and opinions better as we move forward. From challenges and opportunities facing our organization, to voting on critical issues, to the path ahead for the association and its financial wellness, all topics will be tabled for discussion at our upcoming AGM.

As always, a sufficient quorum is required to meet the regulatory requirements, so please plan on attending and stay on to participate in our event presented by Atul Dighe, Research Leader at CEB.

As we deep dive with Dighe to unpack the culture of innovation, we must remember that Canada's uniquely collaborative culture is well primed to embrace business innovation, yet we seem to reproduce what the US does. This recent Globe & Mail article notes the distinctive strengths already in place in our country's rich entrepreneurial culture.

7:30 a.m. - 9:30 a.m.

Creating a "culture of innovation" to drive rapid growth is topping many CEO priority lists. Customers expect it. Investors demand it. And our highest performing employees need it.

But what exactly is a "culture of innovation" and does having one truly impact an organization's ability to win in the marketplace? CEB, now Gartner’s Research and Development Leadership Council has set off to answer these questions.

Our speaker, Atul Dighe, research leader with CEB, now Gartner, will unveil the results of his team's latest study, presenting the drivers of creating an effective culture of innovation and most impactful steps senior leaders can take to develop a culture of innovation to fuel growth. Atul is the co-author of the best-selling book Exploring the Future and is often quoted for his views on strategy, innovation, scenario planning, emerging business opportunities, and acquisitions in publications such as The New York Times, USA Today, and Money Magazine.

The Albany Club
7:30 a.m. - 11:00 a.m.

For centuries people have worried about technology disrupting work. On the cusp of what the World Economic Forum calls the Fourth Industrial Revolution as digital, mobile and artificial intelligence technologies evolve at a dizzying pace, fear that humans will be replaced is increasing.

But, are our fears warranted? Even as robots learn an increasing number of tasks, demand for talent is outpacing supply in many areas. Jobs that exist today will be transformed, while jobs that don’t yet exist will occupy the next generation of workers.

Join us to learn how technologies we already use in our everyday lives are changing the way we work. We’ll see what’s in store for the delivery of HR services. At the same time, we’ll explore how HR needs to reinvent itself to support organizations and workforces as we adapt to the future of work.

Dr. Cindy Gordon, author & CEO at SalesChoice, speakers from Apple, MobileFirst for iOS Apps, and Puvi Sinnathamby, Canadian Mobile Leader at IBM Interactive Experience, will look at:

  • the impact of new technologies on people and organizations;
  • how Apple & IBM are redefining work using digital, mobile and AI technologies; and
  • what it all means for the HR function and HR practitioners.
