2023 Schedule

How the meetings work:

Each meeting is led by expert, industry-specific ‘mentors’ experienced in solving problems, with success measured by how many practically-applicable solutions members leave each meeting with.

The situation:

Members listen to an introductory case study from a life sciences HR thought leader/mentor which addresses a key business problem HRBPs routinely face, and which we’ll aim to provide answers to. 

The discussion:

HRBPs break out into working groups containing the most relevant members (grouped by company size) to challenge each other and develop their ideas whilst coaching each other to think differently.

The action:

Members return to the main plenary to share their groups’ key takeaways as the mentor isolates the most actionable strategies and provides a Q&A opportunity for further tactical and strategic questions.
