What previous conference participants say…

The conference speakers provided me with lots of practical information that I could relate to and benefit from. I learned valuable things which I can and will implement. Thanks.

2018 Conference attendee

Sponsoring The HR Conference was very worthwhile. We met with lots of top HR professionals, but most importantly the delegates were decision-makers and influencers, so our services were in front of the right people.

2018 Conference sponsor

I have much to share with my HR colleagues and peers inside my organisation. I left the conference enthusiastic about the future of the profession.
