Transforming your business and transforming lives of children in Africa

In June 2017 The Copernicus Science Centre in Warsaw will become a hub for leaders and leadership experts focused on developing innovative, agile and vibrant enterprises. Agility by Design is a summit for inspiring and inspired market leaders. By joining the event you will become part of the global community of new generation thinkers, disruptors, and entrepreneurs, who focus on making a positive impact in today’s challenging and highly volatile market environment.

Who are we?

Four entrepreneurial women running their own separate enterprises on three different continents join forces to follow their purpose: creating more energised and innovative organisations and improving lives of children in Africa. 

WHAT is it about?
Agility by design looks at the latest themes and concepts in organisational design. We will examine tools and ideas related to transforming a traditional company into a vibrant and creative hub for innovation and purpose focused cooperation.
By joining the event you will become part of the global community of new generation thinkers, innovators, and entrepreneurs. 
HOW will you participate?

Agility by Design will be delivered as an intensive workshop and you will actively participate in the event. Masterclasses will include keynotes, Q&A’s, questionnaires, group exercises and panel discussions.

WHY is it important?

For the first time in history, the speed of change is faster than our ability to absorb and adapt to it. The direction we chose as humanity is no longer sustainable. It is time to reconsider the way we live, learn, work, think and relate to each other. The future depends largely on our approach to designing and managing business enterprises: creating a more agile, innovative, humane, healthier and happier work environment.

WHO should attend?

Agility by Design is an personal and professional development programme for corporate leaders, HR professionals, business consultants and progressive entrepreneurs who choose to play an active role in transforming markets and creating more agile and sustainable enterprises.

The programme

AbD is designed to inform, energise and inspire. You will be seated at a round table to network and share ideas. Workshops, Q&A sessions, TED like presentations, short inspirations and even physical exercises will keep you alert, involved and energised.

WHO inspired us?

We are inspired by today's most recognized innovation, leadership, and human potential experts: Richard Branson, Marshall Goldsmith, Tony Hsieh, Alexander Manu, Robin Sharma, Simon Sinek and Greg Wells...

Alexander Manu and Greg Wells will be with us personally. Marshall Goldsmith will be represented by Pawel Motyl. Robin Sharma will be represented by members of the Titan and LWT Groups. As for Sir Richard Branson - his spirit will definitely be present!

P.S. This is the exact moment when the idea of this event - Agility by Design - was born: "Screw it. Let's do it, Sir Richard! Just love what you are doing and I am going to focus on promoting your philosophy of business. In ECE and beyond." 
A concept born out of inspiration, empowered by a worthy purpose and implemented with plenty of consistent work - understanding that the limits of possibility are set largely by our imagination.
Screw it - Let's do it.
Because the impossible is simply unexplored!
With gratitude

Our purpose

Read more

Three years ago, in Toronto, attending a course by Robin Sharma, I met an inspiring woman from Nigeria: Modupe Adeyemo . Soon after that Modupe gave up her full-time corporate job to care for some of the poorest children in her city of Lagos.

This project is designed to help Modupe. Our faculty - a group of brilliant experts in new thought leadership and personal development is donating their time to come to Warsaw and support the good cause. All profits will go directly to our children and Modupe personally will make sure no money is wasted. Photos of every child sponsored will be posted on our website ad you will be invited to follow their progress. Beautiful cause and all this in the context of improving your organisation.
