2019 Victoria HR Leadership Summit

Crown, Melbourne

26th & 27th March


In a changing world where people and innovation intersect, HR leadership needs to be at the forefront to proactively shape forward-thinking business strategies with their best assets. As businesses depend heavily on the capabilities of their people to gain a competitive advantage in an increasingly competitive and disruptive landscape, HR must seize the opportunity to bring new thinking to the table, embrace diversity of thought, and transform an innovative vision from inception to business reality.

BIA’s Victoria HR Leaders Summit is part of the well-established national series, bringing the best (and sometimes most underrated) HR stories and valuable lessons learnt. The event will once again invite 120+ senior HR decision makers from different industries to exchange ideas and share current thinking to prepare for tomorrow’s demands and become the people’s champion.

The HR Leadership Summit was a great way to learn about what HR professional are working on. How they have contributed and added value to their organisation. It was also a great way to meet other HR professionals and learn about their experiences and companies.
