8th Annual

International Summit

Reinventing HRTime for Mindful Contemplation

4-6 December 2019

London, UK

Now running for the 8th year, the much anticipated Annual Reinventing HR Summit, will be held in London, 4-6 December 2019.

We passionately believe that it is the HR Leaders who have a key role to play in building strong, welcoming communities in a work place, being superlative coaches, brand builders and behavioural change experts.

However, as a senior HR it is often difficult to find time to reflect and refresh our practice, Day to day demands can mean that we just don’t have the chance to spend time with our peers and share our challenges and hopes.  The Reinventing HR Summit is designed to provide a pause when we can think and regroup.

We will be discussing how we are likely to be affected by trends such as changing workforce demographics, the equalities agenda, sustainability and the continuing development of technology.

The event will include a mix of short presentations and discussion and be supplemented by time for personal mindful contemplation. It should best suit senior level, experienced HRs who can benefit from new perspectives on the role.

Save the dates:

4-6 December 2019

Venue:

The Bentley Hotel London

Discover proven techniques and approaches to the biggest HR challenges. Join us for expert insight and networking opportunities.
