International Annual Conference

05 April 2018

The conference will be exploring the theme  of “Power and possibility: unleashing the potential of HRD” and will provide an opportunity to discuss the latest research from a field of international academics and Ann Francke, CEO of CMI, will be providing insights from CMI research and policy agenda.

To facilitate conversations between academics and professional practice, there will be a practitioner focused day on Thursday June 8, with the theme of “Power and possibility: the Future of Work”. Steve Morton, Head of People, Resourcing and Organisational Development at Virgin Money will provide a keynote to set the agenda for a day of hot topic discussions, case studies, professional development workshops and an expert panel discussion on the theme of  ‘Future Talent’, sponsored by Graduate Entrepreneurial Talent Management (GETM3), an EU funded International Research Project, led by Northumbria University.

There is still an opportunity for you to contribute to the practitioner day and we welcome submissions from both individuals and organisations.

The closing date for submissions for the practitioner day is revised to April 13th. If you are interested in contributing to the practitioner day or would appreciate some guidance through the development and submission process. Drop us an email
