About this senior level event for HR Directors

Join us at the premier conference for HR Directors and executive teams this coming March and get actionable insights to help you harness the full potential of the changing world of work.

This exclusive gathering of HR decision-makers is dedicated to help you find the best approach to achieve your HR business goals and set your company apart.

Join like-minded HR professionals. Come connect in-person, network and share your stories and experiences.  This is an ideal opportunity to step out of the office, to focus on your own development, to be in a different environment allowing you the opportunity to reflect and think differently.  Meet HR leaders who are not only thinking about the changes ahead but laying the groundwork for that future today.
