The HR Directors International Summit is the ultimate gathering of International and pan-European HR professionals.

It brings together key personnel, thought leaders, academics, HR practitioners and leading HR service providers. The summit provides an unparalleled platform for HR professionals to access leading programs and key knowledge to advance their own work and careers.

The Summit will offer presentations, panel discussions, case studies and workshops by top industry professionals, researchers, consultants and academics. Learn about emerging challenges and development strategies in the Human Resources industry and achieve greater business results.

The global forces of changing political, economic and social conditions are powerful shapers of HR strategies. New and innovative thinking is needed: it's not enough to just follow the news and react to it; proactivity is key. Events such as war, conflict and economic slowdown directly affect currency movements and globalisation, which in turn have ramifications for mergers, takeover issues and expansion strategies.

More than ever, it is essential for today’s HR Director to be aware of developments and best practices in engagement, talent acquisition, leadership development and change management strategies to achieve success in this challenging environment.

Reasons you need to be there:
•To benchmark with leading organisations, peers and groups on organisational development
•To hear case studies from people who are tackling the same issues as you
•To get practical and up-to-date strategies and advice, designed to develop both individual and organisational performance
•To tackle specific issues that concern you, such as: engagement, talent, coaching, legal, change management technology, compensation and benefits, recession-proofing your workforce and career development for HR professionals
•To hear from leaders in their fields and engage with them directly
•To network and interact with your peers and leading figures in HR
•To attend the practical interactive workshops -- designed to generate real solutions to real-life problems
•To see the latest services and products from exhibiting solution-providers
•To learn and engage in a truly pan-European environment
The focus of this event is firmly on providing you with workable strategies and solutions that you can implement for improved real-world performance.
