International Organisational Learning, Knowledge and Capabilities Conference 2019 at the University of Sussex, UK 



One of the main features of OLKC2019 is removal of keynote speeches from the programme in favour of more dynamic and interactive panel-style conversations. Each of the two days of the conference is built around one of these conversations - Day 1 is focused on how organisations react and interact with digitisation, and Day 2 is about the broader impact of digitisation on the workplace as well as about the future of work in general.


Each Daily Conversation will bring together a pair of inspirational scholars and a moderator. In collaboration with the Talking About Organizations Podcast, both daily conversations will be recorded and made publicly available after the conference.
