Our speakers set the tone for the day. Scott McAllister, CEO of Prosci, kicked things off by passionately discussing the ‘why’ of building enterprise change capability.  

Next, Andy Schoonbroodt, CEO of The People Side of Change, delved deep into the ‘how’ of developing enterprise change capability, offering practical insights. 

Erik Koperdraat from Damen Shipyards shared his organization’s journey in building a robust change management practice, and Tamara de Lange and Wim Steenbergen of Royal Schiphol Group shared their experiences managing the human side of change on must-win projects. Their stories were not only inspiring but also a testimonial to the power change management. 

In the breakout sessions, Kaatje Verlinden (The People Side of Change) delved into the ‘Power of Neuroscience in Change Projects,’ revealing the fascinating science behind effective change management. Mariël Blom (The People Side of Change) then masterfully explained the Prosci Change Management Methodology, providing attendees with a practical roadmap for success. 

But what truly made this event remarkable was the active participation and engagement of all those present.  

The Ignite Change Success event may be behind us, but we hope the lessons learned, the connections made, and the inspiration gained are catalysts for future change success.
