Leading Agile HR pioneers, Sky Betting and Gaming (SBG), are hosting our first Northern UK Agile HR Meetup on the evening of 15th Feb 2018 at their cool tech office in central Leeds.

The SBG People Operations team are sharing their story of transformation, that saw the team grow from a group of HR Business Partners into an Agile, self-organising collective, working across the different tribes that make up their dynamic SBG business.

On the night our Meetup special guests are Kirk Vallis, Global Head of Creative Leadership Development at Google, and Matt Bolton-AlarconCreativity Expert from Special Sauce, exploring what it means when people work at their best and how to continuously harness this vitality within your organisation.
