Welcome

Resilience Through Resourcefulness

Firmly established as the nation’s singular CHRO leadership event, the HR Leaders Forum is returning in February with dedicated content streams and a renewed agenda to build business resilience.

As our operating environment corrects, the Forum presents an enviable opportunity for the nation’s HR leaders to connect, combat shared challenges, and leverage opportunities emerging from the upturn economy.

Together, we will interrogate the forces shaping the profession, from the behavioural precedent being established by remote work practices to people analytics and ethics, all with the intent of charting a new path to progress.

Why Attend

  • The HR Leaders Forum secures national and global speakers of unmatched quality and immense authority. Our attendees are charged with shaping the conversation, armed with an array of real-time engagement tools.
  • Every session is independently moderated to facilitate candid discussion and debate, and the programme is designed to provide attendees with valuable opportunities to connect in-person on the business that matters.
