lucy-adams-speakerLucy Adams 
CEO of Disruptive HR
Former HR Director at the BBC

Lucy Adams talks about some of the biggest challenges facing leaders today, including:

  • The need for new capabilities and mindsets to ensure organizations can cope with the demands of a disrupted and digital world.
  • How leaders need to respond to the changing expectations of future employees.
  • How leaders can create a culture of innovation, agility and collaboration.

She provides fresh insights and practical tools to help leaders lead, engage and develop their people in ways that are relevant for a disrupted world.

Lucy created Disruptive HR after having held senior level HR roles in a variety of sectors, most recently at the BBC. She grew frustrated with the lack of innovation and fresh thinking in the profession and wanted to find new ways of tackling old problems. She now runs the agency to help business leaders and HR functions to do things differently. Lucy is also the author of the bestseller “HR Disrupted” a book packed with practical ways to innovate your approach to leading people in a disrupted world.

Billy_Brimblecom_SOF-minBilly Brimblecom
Executive Director, Steps of Faith Foundation

I was a full time musician and part time actor for most of my life. Now I'm a full time charity guy, full time dad and husband, and play music on occasion. Even though it was the worst thing in the world at the time, losing my leg to cancer in 2005 turned out to be one of the BEST things that ever happened to me. Now with Steps Of Faith, I get to help other amputees for a living, which is a huge blessing! I aim to be a connector- to connect with people who want to help further Steps of Faith's mission, and to connect amputees with the prosthetic care they need to get their freedom of mobility back. The creative energy I had as a musician and actor is now poured into how to make Steps Of Faith grow, and reach more people.
