2021 NSW HR Leadership Summit

ICC, Sydney

13 & 14 May


In times of change and disruption, HR leadership is critically needed to drive engagement, progress and innovation in the new world of work. And as the nature of work changes, the HR playbook is being rewritten for the way we build a meaningful workplace culture; develop, attract and re-skill people; create collaborative experiences; learn and relearn; and transform to agile ways of working to meet the changing needs of the workforce. Be the leader your business needs to help it grow and prepare people to adapt and excel in the evolving realities.

The summit is now part of the well-established regional series, we look forward to collaborating with HR leaders and invite them to share their thinking, progress and most valuable lessons learnt.
