Conference & Unconference
Last week, EPiC attended Nomad8 #JAFAC – a refreshingly different conference & unconference event! Insights that were straight talking, honest, frank, gritty, heartfelt and occasionally downright funny were shared. Strong themes at this event was Leadership and doing good in the world.

Sandy Davey touched on the Inevitable Kraken of Doom and shared insights from the Choice Board shifting focus to problem solving, being agile.
Charlotte Walshe showed us that the Borg have lessons for us in being agile, and when we embark in transformations are we really being explicit to leaders about what we are asking for?
Ruth Brown shared that Values can have avatars too and the valuable lessons in turning UX onto ourselves.
Sam Laing challenged us to examine on our own personal limiting beliefs – with a question “What experiments are we running on our own life?”
