How it Works

Our ethos is simple. We want you to be an active participant. That’s why we’ve developed a format designed to optimise interaction and engagement.


We start our Virtual Future of HR Masterclass with a short series of virtual roundtable rotations. Each of these features a 10 minute presentation from one of our expert speakers, followed by 15 minutes of peer-to-peer conversations.

When the time’s up, a new team of experts will join the room for a fresh round of presentations and roundtable discussions.


These intimate break-out rooms are the perfect forum for you to ask questions and find solutions to your industry-specific challenges.
