Conference Overview



More than ever, HR is moving into the Boardroom.

At a time when leading businesses are looking for hard answers, HR is equipped with the latest metrics, proven experience and knowledge, cultural understanding, and legislative framework to help organizations evolve. 

Successful organizations embody their values, and incorporate the insights and expertise of HR to navigate their way through day-to-day challenges with confidence: addressing accommodation and integration; increasing efficiencies; attracting talent and aligning actions to objectives.

With the skills and knowledge to maximize leadership potential and shape culture, HR is becoming the catalyst that brings together collective values.

Today’s HR professionals apply practical tools to harness the power inherent in bringing together every person’s contribution.

HRevolution: the time has come to recognize that people are at the core of business success.
