The Format
The Format
  • Learn. Network. Meet.
    The Human Resources Forums combine conference sessions, peer networking and supplier meetings into a time efficient and focused event that is unique to you.

    No time wasted
    Using our unique appointment system, we'll make sure that your valuable time is not wasted and that you are engaged learning about topics that are interesting to you and your business and meeting suppliers who you have chosen to meet based on your upcoming needs.

    Expertly organised and delivered
    Based on your choices, we'll let you know one week before the event who you are due to meet and which conference sessions you are attending via our on line event management systems. We'll also make all the pertinant information available for download after the event including material from the conference sessions and details of all the supplier companies you have met.


  • There are extensive opportunities to network and build relationships with your fellow HRDs in the luxurious surroundings of the Arcadia or the Four Seasons. Our annual research shows that delegates value this element of the programme as highly as any other aspect.

    Our events provide neutral, judgement-free platforms on which to:-
    • Consider and test new ideas
    • Find out more about approaches being adopted by other senior professionals
    • Deepen knowledge in a psecific area
    • Meet new supplier companies through direct access and peer recommendations
    • Develop joint initiatives and strategic alliances


    Many delegates benefit from the speed meetings on the first evening, where the opportunity to meet up to 4 suppliers in 10-minute slots offers quick fire introductions. Many clients have had successful follow-ups with contacts they made through this – and it also serves as a nice ice breaker on your first night.

    The running order of the one day forum looks very similar to this, with the same mix of conference sessions, meetings and networking, but obviously on a much shorter time scale - the day typically starts at 8am, finishing by 5pm.
  • In 2017/2018, over 250 senior HR professionals will join our forums. They will represent a wide range of companies and we endeavour to provide as many networking opportunities as possible. .

    Please Get in touch if you'd like to know who is attending in 2017/2018.
