Connect and share – on a global scale

Our global events provide Cognita colleagues with opportunities to form connections and learn from peers right around the world.

One example is our Education & Technology conference, The School of the Future  which attracted international speakers from Google, Microsoft, Harvard and more, as well as offering our own people a platform to share their expertise and experience.

A focus on wellbeing

We are keen to support the wellbeing of our people. One of the ways we do this is by working with clinical psychologists and Cognita friends Dr Bill Mitchell and Dr Hazel Harrison to create bite-size content focussed on the issues that matter most to our team.
