HR Leadership Summit 2017

Leadership for
a new world

Croke Park Stadium

26 October 2017

Welcome to Ireland's largest and most senior HR event

This year, we look at the different styles of leadership at every level needed to operate in a world that is continuously evolving due to an increasingly digitised and globalised economy, more demanding consumers and the changing nature of the workplace environment.

To remain ahead of the game, leaders now need to be enablers of effective organisational change, be responsive to the evolving commercial realities of their business and be the architects of an employee value proposition that speaks to the people their organisation needs.

2017 Summit Themes:

  • Leadership for a new world (Think like a leader/Act like a leader)
  • Strategic organisational design and transformation for a new world
  • Building compelling Employee Value Propositions

Event Summary

  • Fresh, actionable and inspiring leadership content
  • Real-world insights and cases from the most innovative HR organisations
  • International insights from Keynote speakers
  • Great networking with up to 400 most senior HR professionals
  • Full day event, breaks and lunch included
  • Now in its 18th year running

 

This year’s Summit is highly promising and we look forward to welcoming you there!
