ELMO South Australia HR Leadership Summit

Adelaide Convention Centre

18 & 19 October 2018


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.

BIAP’s South Australia 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 2017 SA HR Leaders Summit was an excellent opportunity to hear about the interesting developments that are occurring in HR/Recruitment industry in Australia. It is particularly pleasing to listen to the various HR challenges that organisations face and the unique ways in which they have addressed these challenges.
