Connect – Develop – Share
This year’s Visionary annual conference will be held online across three short days, 18 to 20 November 2020.
Although we are sad we will not be getting together face-to-face, we are really pleased to share that the event will now be free of charge to all members. Also, the conference is open to both CEOs and as many staff as you wish from across your organisations. So please save the dates and encourage your teams to do the same – even if only joining for parts of the event over the three days.
We are designing the conference to reduce the dreaded Zoom/screen fatigue! All sessions will be bite-sized, with lots of breaks built in and the opportunity for you to build your own individual programme of activities and workshops, jumping in and out of things as suits you. So far, we have the following exciting speakers confirmed:
- Debra Allcock Tyler, CEO Directory of Social Change
- Lucy Edwards, Broadcaster and Radio 1’s first visually impaired DJ
- Mary Butler, Professor of Occupational Therapy – Otago Polytechnic New Zealand
We will still have an awards ceremony over lunch, there will still be opportunities for networking, we will still have the national sight loss organisation’s CEO panel and, in addition to this, we have secured more external facilitators and experts than ever before! We still want content to be led by our members so if you would like to host a workshop or have ideas for themes you would like to see, just email us! We will be sharing all news and updates in this briefing, across our social media and on our dedicated conference webpage.
