We’re sponsoring HR Grapevine’s Magic of HR conference

We wanted to let you know that we’re sponsoring the HR Grapevine annual conference “The Magic of HR” on Thursday 16 March 2017 at The Brewery 52 Chiswell Street, Moorgate, EC1Y 4SD.

The full title of the conference The Magic of HR: The key to achieving is to get people believing and this year the event will explore HR’s magical role in the context of uncertainty and a constantly changing world that requires new ways of working.

“The rate of change may seem unmanageable, it is the magic of HR that will enable businesses to achieve the impossible. Whether in delivering performance through people, or ensuring the workforce is agile and adaptable enough to navigate the changing environment. In such a fast-moving world, HR needs to empower leaders, anticipate the future and inspire an entire workforce in order to allow for successful transformations.”


The key to achieving is to get people believing

Next month HR Grapevine is gathering a unique line-up of Board Executives and HR Directors to speak about the magic of the people function and how the key to achieving is to get people believing. This could mean fostering a belief across the entire workforce that the business can do the impossible, or getting those at the top to believe in the importance of the people agenda and its power to transform.

Here’s the agenda for the day:

7:45am to 8:30am – Registration and networking
8:30am – Conference Address
8:45am to 10:15am – Session 1: Change & Transformation
10:15am to 11:00am – Networking and coffee
11:00am to 12:30pm – Session 2: Performance & Productivity
12:30pm to 1:30pm – Networking session + Cocktails and Standing Starters
1:30pm to 2:30pm – Gala Lunch
2:30pm to 4:00pm – Session 3: Belief & Inspiration
4:00pm – Conference Close

And here’s the 10Eighty advert that you’ll find in the conference pack:


It’s not a supernatural thing. HR’s abilities are founded in astute strategic planning and can be adopted by any practitioner – not just the blessed few.

So we hope you can join 400 senior HR professionals at this year’s event for inspiration, lively debates and networking. A ‘magical lunch’ is also promised, but nothing will be revealed until 16 March…
