Revisiting Pandora's Box: The Gift of Hope and the Future of Agile

A 30 minute Endnote by:

Portia Tung

About this Endnote

For many people, the creation of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 was one of the biggest catalysts for positive change in the world of business and IT.

And yet, in spite of the significant steps we’ve taken in advancing organisational agility, for many of us, attaining true agility remains as elusive as Hope itself.

Join us for a fun, interactive and self-reflective keynote with Portia Tung, Executive and Business Agile Coach, renowned for playing in corporate settings to bring about positive change.

Together with a clear goal, willpower and waypower we’ll learn how to apply Hope as a practical tool for a more playful and joyful journey towards personal and organisational agility.
