Welcome to Australasian Change Days
A yearly event each September for leaders and change makers
Our theme for #acdc2021 was Steering into and embracing complexity
Dave Snowden joined #ACDC2021 and provided a very thought provoking start to the event!
Dave’s session – No new normal, had some great feedback!
- Fantastic to hear Dave Snowden talk about the new theory of change. Congratulations ACDC Team!
- Whet my appetite to read more about this stuff. Definitely going to look up the Cynefin framework
- Thanks Dave, definitely getting us to think outside our normal frames and references.
- David’s discussion was educational and thought provoking- an invitation to learn and research. I was clinging to every word, trying to take notes and only hoping that I can hear it all again in a recording. Familiarise yourself with David’s work, very thought provoking.
- Fluid delivery; Many, many new concepts; Entirely different perspective
- David’s knowledge, his candour and wit is both education and entertaining! Love the content!
- Everything – the stories weaved through, information, openness to all kinds of questions.
- Extremely deep level of experience and sophistication on the topic.
Coming soon, excerpts from our #acdc2021 speakers!
What did our participants have to say?
Change makers conversations are so very transferable to every setting and every occupation. Greater diversity of engagement is needed – people should enlist!
The conference is amazing and such a richness of insight and generosity. Thanks so much to you and the team for everything you have put into making it an amazing event. One thing I have had chance to reflect upon over the last two days is the importance of grounding my sense of purpose and keeping a level of resilience if I’m to make the best of it. I just wanted you to know how impactful the conference has been for me. 🙏
Such a fantastic event once again – you managed to exceed all expectations again with an amazingly engaging virtual event full of connection and insight and inspiration. Thanks so much for all your incredibly hard work to pull it off!
The ACDC team did a truly amazing job. Not only did they outdo themselves in every aspect, they also got such good speakers, interesting topics, good workshops and a very well-rounded program for all three days. This is by far the best event that money can buy. Good on you team for making this happen, it’s not easy in regular times let alone during a pandemic. Be proud, be very proud of all you accomplished!
Congratulations! Thank you for creating this space to #engage virtually in well facilitated sessions by thought provoking speakers. What made this event special is the #insights and #connections with fellow participants. To being courageous!
What an amazing weekend! From the awesome kick off event on Friday evening through to the close on Sunday, the first ever Australasian Change Days event was everything I had hoped for! An array of informative, engaging and humble presenters and stimulating, honest and open attendees, made the event a game changer!
The effort that the team and facilitators went through to produce the absolutely successful ACDC2021 event is inspirational. Not only was the event educational and entertaining, it has woken a curiosity in me that has been still for some time. Thank you to the ACDC team, the facilitators and all the incredibly talented people that I had the pleasure of meeting this weekend!
