Welcome

Resilience Through Resourcefulness

Firmly established as the nation’s singular CHRO leadership event, the HR Leaders Forum is returning in February 2023 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.

Annabelle Chee
Senior Associate, People Operations ANZ

Workato
As people are at the core of every business, I believe in taking a human-centric approach to HR. I find work very fulfilling when I can help empower employees to thrive through engaging, contemporary people processes that consider people as more than just their job title. I have recently started a new adventure with Automation/Integration specialists, Workato. I am the first HR employee for the Region and am super excited to be a part of this innovative and technologically advanced organisation. My role will involve building and implementing core people processes and ensuring that a positive workplace culture is sustained as we expand. Prior to this, was a People & Culture Advisor for a Global Ed-Tech company within a small and close-knit HR team. In addition to this, I have previously been in charge of the HR portfolio at a National NFP, supporting LGBTQIA+ professionals and students. Dedicating my time to both organisations has allowed me to develop my HR skills quickly across the corporate and NFP sector. I'm passionate about making the 'brand' of HR a positive one by using language and graphics that are engaging, fun and accessible. Having trained with graphic design tools, I always ensure that the communications I create are digestible and attract attention. Many years of experience in administrative roles has helped to grow my organisational and time management skills. Through supporting a variety of Executives, Senior Leaders and teams, I have had in depth experience in liaising with various stakeholders which has allowed me to feel comfortable in communicating and understanding the needs of people across all levels. Having completed my Masters of Human Resource Management, I am now undertaking my Masters of Business Administration as I'd love to continuing expanding my knowledge on business, technology and organizational design.
