2019 Western Australia HR Leadership Summit

Westin, Perth

27th & 28th August 2019


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 flagship WA 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 WA HR Summit 2017 was a really good opportunity to hear from some of the leaders in the Australian HR community, and get access to peers who were facing some of the same challenges I was.
Another great HR Leaders Summit event in Perth with interesting content that really helps you reflect on your own agenda and people plan. Always good for connecting with other HR Leaders in the market and build a solid network for the future.
A great networking opportunity and to hear from peers re real life application of HR principles.

Great lineup over the two days - opportunities to learn from industry leaders and business partners.
Always a great opportunity to connect with HR folk in other industries and within own, to share, hear or seek ideas and possible solutions to own challenges as well as discuss what is on the horizon.
