The Amusement revolution in Italy

Kevin Williams, KWP

10:45am-11:30am

Emerging from lockdown, the need to be aware of the new trends in the immersive technology landscape that will be deployed across the market is covered in this session.

Retention and Development of your Employees

Sean Grant, Core Impact

11:45am-12:45pm

Employee retention is important to organisations as it saves time and money, while increasing productivity and efficiency. Research has shown that for every employee lost, there will be a cost of approximately 6-9 months salary to replace them as well as the disruption and time invested to attract, recruit and onboard. That doesn’t account for the value lost through the quality of experienced employees. You can see how valuable your employees become to the organisation. In this two-part workshop we will discuss the value of your employee, the importance of leadership and communication, and some top tips to help you implement an Employee Retention Strategy.

Competitive Play In Entertainment: Esports, Tournament, Prizes and beyond

Kevin Williams, KWP

1:00pm-1:45pm

Sometimes described as Esports, this session will look at the benefits and issues of this new approach. Looking at the concept and how it can be best applied to our businesses.
