Blue Sky Thinking Festival 2021

1st February – 12th February 2021

The Blue Sky Thinking Festival returns in 2021 for a two-week long spring programme. The virtual festival includes sessions on book clubs, leadership and management, mindfulness and well-being as well as many others. It is has been designed to inspire participants, teach new skills and support them, as well as discussions revolving around the topics that have affected us most throughout 2020 and into 2021.

Blue Sky Thinking Festival is open to all of our subscribers and anyone within their organisation, with the exception of some free sessions open to the public. The Festival themes are leadership, diversity and wellbeing and are a great opportunity for you, your teams and your colleagues to access high quality experiences in an informal and easy to access way either individually or as a group.
