The London HR Connection is delighted to invite you to join our next (free of charge) webinar at 4.30pm on Wednesday 18th November when we will be discussing what should be on the minds of HR professionals today with three senior business and thought leaders.

Dr Maggie Semple, OBE has asked this question of hundreds of HR professionals over the last few years. While some topics have changed there are three that appear time and time again but in different guises. Business transformation, agility and race are not new topics but the nuances of each and how they interact with each other is even more of a challenge today than ever before.

In this interactive session Maggie will frame the discussion with her own thoughts and experiences in conversation with two of the UK’s leading business figures, Luke Mayhew and Pamela Jones. You may agree or disagree with our speakers, but you will leave knowing more than when you joined!
