Re-Birth of Balance

Designing the life and work for the new world



Exciting news from Istanbul, Turkey!

As IODA Turkey Team, we are working for IODA’s annual world conference 2018 which will take place between September 13-15, 2018.

We are proud to present you the conference details at this stage.

Our main theme will be the journey of relationship between the individual and organization. What have we experienced so far? What will the future bring? And most importantly, how will the “balance” be shaped during this transition? What will be the key elements of this new design of “new” work and life?
