The differentiating factors for a successful organisation are shifting. Economic pressures are consolidating and transforming the competitive landscape. Accelerated adoption of new technologies is changing how work is done, who does it, and whether it is done by humans at all. What it means to have a fulfilled work life is evolving alongside changing workforce demographics and expectations.
In order to succeed in these new environments, businesses need to be able to pivot quickly to new strategies, models and processes with ease. They will need new leaders, new talent and new mindsets to see them through. People leaders are central to the building of these resilient organisations that not only weather storms but thrive.
From 10am CET on Thursday, June 18th 2020, the digital HRD community will come together for a virtual deep dive into the future world of work and business. Join your peers in a series of interactive and dynamic sessions, for a collaborative exploration of the emerging challenges and create the future focused strategies that will continue to drive your organisation and people forward.

Here’s a flavour of what to expect from our masterclasses:
Creating Meaningful Connections for Enhanced Engagement (11:50 – 12:2o CET)
Presented by Georgiana de Noronha, President – Northern Europe, The Kraft-Heinz Company
Elevating productivity through employee engagement has long been high on the list of priorities for people leaders, but with the workforce more dispersed than ever, simply maintaining a day to day connection has become a challenge. Technology means we can reach each other at a click of a button – how do you build that into true relationships? Discover how organisations are maintaining cultures built in face to face environments and creating meaningful and impactful opportunities to connect. How can we build remote communities now that last?
Combatting Loneliness and Anxiety in Times of Crisis (12:20 – 12:50 CET)
We’re in a time of widespread personal crisis. Loneliness due to disconnect from colleagues, anxiety over health and wellbeing and stress over finances all create the perfect storm for burnout, productivity loss and frankly, unhappiness. How do you engage and support mental health needs across an organisation where needs are so heightened, and so individualised?
We explore where the new pressure points are developing, and how to authentically connect and communicate with those that will need it most.
Planning for the Leaders of the Future (14:20 – 14:50 CET)
The challenges faced by leaders today are unpredictable and unprecedented and the leaders that are making the most impact aren’t just business minded, but people minded. As organisations look for empathetic guidance through uncertainty, equipping your leadership team with these skills and recognising this different kind of potential in the next generation will be key to securing your organisation’s future.
What does succession planning look like when the shape of the future is unclear? How can you source and prepare your leaders with the skills they need for the unknown?
Sharing experiences and knowledge are key elements to HRD: A Virtual Experience. These roundtable discussions with small groups of peers give you the chance to share perspectives on hot topics and key challenges facing the profession. Have a say in the topics you want to discuss on the day! Pre-registration open 3 weeks before the event date – once you have registered, watch out for our welcome email to get involved in our roundtables.
