Human Resource Summit - Virtual Edition8 - 12 March 2021
Virtual Edition - what's the deal?
In 2020, we adapted, tested and perfected a new virtual style of summit that incorporates all the key elements of our usual summits - 1:1 meetings between solution providers and Heads/ Directors of HR, keynote talks, break-out sessions, and plenty of networking opportunities. The response was awesome. Relationships were formed, business goals were effectively addressed, and solutions were discovered.
While we return to our popular live HR Summit in October, we know from the feedback we’ve had that there is a demand for business goals to be tackled earlier in 2021, and the huge perks of a provenly-effective virtual summit means this is an opportunity not to be missed, and a date to go in the diary.
Our virtual events are both time and cost-effective, and tailored to your schedule. Not to mention the great line up of speakers addressing topical issues, sure to be on your radar.
What will the HR21 Virtual Edition look like?
Our objective is quality, rather than quantity, to ensure that the time you give is of maximum productivity, and adaptable to your new way of working. The programme will be HR focused and will include:
Morning sessions across 2 days: 2 x opening keynotes, 2 x TED style talks + Q&A, 2 x small group workshops and networking roulette
Pre-selected and qualified one to one meetings with the UK’s top solutions providers. These will be 45 minutes in length and scheduled throughout the week of the Summit
Additional virtual speaker and roundtable series in the build up to the event, as part of many benefits of joining our summit community
