WST 2017 overview
The main event
Work Smarter Together 2017 (WST 2017) is an exciting UCD-wide event dedicated to celebrating our creativity, innovation and collaboration.
The event creates an opportunity for colleagues from across UCD to get involved and share their experiences of working on collaborative projects and initiatives across teams/units – there are lots of different ways to do this including parallel sessions, poster presentations and networking opportunities.
The spine of the day is formed around our three keynote speakers – check here for the overall shape of what they will contribute:
- David Whyte, poet, author and internationally acclaimed speaker
- Joe Drumgoole, tech entrepreneur and developer advocate at MongoDB
- Dympna Devine, Head of School, UCD School of Education
We are also providing more opportunities for colleagues to work together through pre-event workshops on Tuesday, 14 March 2017. These sessions give you the opportunity for hands on experience with Agile’s Lean training, with Equality, Diversity and Inclusion topics, and with some sessions aimed at those of you who would like to step outside the box and spend more time with your creative side.
All sessions at Work Smarter Together 2017 will take place in the UCD O’Brien Centre for Science.
Online registration begins on 2nd February 2017.
There are two steps to registering – you book your WST 2017 place via online registration and you come to the registration desk on the day to collect your conference badge and to be checked in.
You can also check in from 1pm on March 14 so come along, avoid the queues and browse the poster exhibition.
