Relationships Foundation Annual Conference

Relationships are, of course, at the heart of all human endeavour, and we must pay attention to the effect of social structures and policy on the quality of the relational health. But what if relationships themselves have the transformative power to drive social, political and cultural change? What if relational health is not just a question, but the answer?

Event details:

Alongside our ongoing top-down focus on the relational impact of policy and organisational practice, we are exploring the ways in which strong, close relationships can be a catalyst for improving our social structures. We invite you to join us at our 2019 annual conference to explore this further.

Hosted in the Møller Centre at Churchill College, Cambridge on Friday 13th September, we will debate the key issues and discuss the latest research and work. In the morning, Professors Gordon Harold and Colleen McLaughlin will present their work in the fields of genetics, child development, education and mental health, whilst KPMG’s Head of Digital Disruption Shamus Rae will offer a provocative view on the impact of artificial intelligence on relationships. In the afternoon, we will explore the work of organisations already applying this thinking in their work.

Our aim is to provoke you into seeing relationships as a driver for positive change in families, communities and workplaces, and to explore - with a roomful of the world’s leading relational thinkers and researchers - where and how you can act to enable positive change through relational optimisation.
