What is Spark the Change

Spark the Change is an event for the whole organisation. It brings together leaders from across the business to explore how they can work together to create lasting and total change. With events in London, Toronto and Melbourne, we aim to inspire people and offer practical help in overcoming obstacles and developing your skills to make a change.

Spark offers a mixture of inspirational talks from leaders who have achieved exceptional transformations alongside highly practical workshops to allow you to create tailored learning for your own needs. It’s an opportunity to learn, find inspiration and re-energise, allowing you to try loads of different courses in one place to know which would be the most useful / interesting for your people. You’ll meet other individuals committed to improving their organisations and making changes with learning and tips to share. After attending Spark, you will know exactly what change you’re going to spark and have the confidence and skills to make it happen.

I’m writing with a big thank you for last week’s Spark. I had an amazing time with enormous value from all of the sessions that I attended and met some great people, with whom I hope to be able to collaborate over the coming months. I also really enjoyed the food, which I can rarely say of other conferences I attend! Thank you so much for the hard work that went into putting such a fabulous event together.

Spotify

Spotify

Quickly supplanting meatballs and flat-pack furniture as Sweden’s most adored export, Spotify was launched in 2008 and has completely changed they way people listen to music ever since. By allowing users to play music directly from the cloud — rather than by downloading it first — Spotify became wildly popular, and as a startup gave entrenched music industry players like Apple’s iTunes a run for its money. Part of the allure for Spotify’s users is that the service (currently) boasts more than 30 million tracks, and save for some high-profile holdouts like The Beatles, it has pretty much every song you’d ever want to listen to. Another attractive feature is that people can use Spotify for free.
