Our journey starts here…

EODF celebrates its 10th anniversary in 2020.

This year we bring together our global community with the shared ambition to design sustainable organisations for the future.

Join us at our annual conference on 21-22 October for provocation, discovery, insights, learning and ‘surfing the wave of disruption’.

But wait… it doesn’t stop there, why not continue your design experience and join our 12 month journey of ‘adaptation and emergence’…

How the journey unfolds…

We will explore the global crisis of Covid-19, how it’s disrupted our environment, our organisation’s and ourselves.

We start at the conference on 21st October, picking up pace connecting with a series of highly interactive ‘touchpoints’. We will be guided and inspired by industry-leading provocateurs, case studies and wisdom from our community.

Our journey celebrates the magical conferences’ of the past and looks to the future as we adapt and evolve in different times. 

Immerse yourself…

From the moment you join, you will enter highly interactive and immersive virtual sessions, powered by our ‘Network App’, which contains your personalised journey.

You’ll hear from provocateurs who will spark new thinking, engage in breakout spaces. You’ll connect, share and learn how others are responding to today’s challenges in the world of Organisation Design.

In true EODF style, there’s opportunity for informal networking; chat, connect, reminisce and plan your future collaborations. Are we still doing the sock competition? Absolutely.


Disruptive environments and operating contexts call for disruptive thinking. We have all experienced real and unpredictable shocks in recent months, and we invite our provocateurs to help us navigate both the present and future with their disruptive thinking. We will emerge with different ideas and examples on how to adapt, build resilience, and develop more sustainable organisations.

Breakouts & reflective space

Having been stimulated by our provocateurs, we will breakout into smaller groups to carry the conversation on. We’ll also have reflective space in between sessions to share stories and learn from each other on how we’re adapting to disruption and designing for a more resilient and sustainable organisation.

Connect and grow your network

EODF conferences are made through connection and informal networking. The content is rich, but the people are what makes the experience so worthwhile. Even though we’re going virtual this year, we will make time to connect and chat informally so you can continue to grow your network.
