The Insight Show strikes back in 2017: new date – 8th & 9th March, new location – Olympia West, and a brand new event organisation.

Askia’s mission, vision & values

Askia's mission, vision and values header image

This year marks the 20th anniversary of Askia; a time to celebrate, but also to reflect on the corporate equivalent of existential questions: our mission, vision and core values. These 3 business concepts can seem abstract at first, yet they are essential. Imagine a football team whose players don’t know the rules of the game and how to play it or an architect without a vision of what the building will be used by and for which purpose. We all need aspiration and destination in life. Businesses are…
