Nourishing Our Country

The OzHarvest HQ in Alexandria is a unique space. Not only does food rescue happen here, we also have two fully equipped kitchens where we host Nourish education programs and Cooking For a Cause workshops - it's a warm and embracing space in what is a working warehouse.

Hear Ronni Kahn, Founder & CEO of OzHarvest speak about her entrepreneurial journey and her purpose driven choices leading to the start and running of OzHarvest. Ronni will take the attendees on a journey of her life and of our premises with the possibility of visiting our Community Garden which is located within the Industrial State. Ronni is an incredibly inspirational speaker and guests will leave inspired and perhaps even challenged to live their lives with Purpose.

And we will likely offer up a tasty treat or two made from rescued food!

Why data will become irrelevant in the future world of work

With the growing social injustice in the world,  many people feel helpless to affect change and alter the global course that’s been charted. But we all play a role. Every second of every day. And much of that role starts in the workplace where long standing systems of power, politics, and structures inhibit the very change we want to see in the world. The biggest culprit? Data. Allison takes us on a journey to explore the history of the workplace, where we’ve been, and where we are inevitably going. And that new destination involves minimal data (as opposed to Big Data) and a lot more purpose and heart. Interested in a sneak peak? Read her blog here: http://www.veldhoencompany.com/en/media/data-irrelevant-future-world-work/

Why ABW leverages Leadership Development 
Strong leadership is a no brainer in succeeding in the competitive world of work today. Yet, even after all the leadership development programs put in place, why do employee engagement surveys continue to point at poor leadership? Gijs will share his provocative views on how the evolving workplace will challenge leaders to design a new way of working where all employees are free to work anywhere, anyhow, and anytime. Our future generations of workers will demand that we re-define leadership and how leading with more flexibility and empowerment (and less power and politics) will create a better world of work.

d.school - Design Thinking

Design thinking is a powerful problem solving tool helping you approach challenges in a new way. In 60 minutes you will be taken through a full design cycle by participating in The Gift-Giving Project. This is a fast-paced project where participants pair up to interview each other, identify real needs, and develop a solution to “redesign the gift-giving experience” for their partner. NO PREVIOUS DESIGN EXPERIENCE REQUIRED. We’ll provide all the information you need to be successful. Through this experience we hope you will take away some of the basic principles of Design Thinking and start to adapt them into your personal and professional routines.
