HR leaders forums

Exclusive events for senior HR people


What are Connor HR leaders forums?

Connor HR leaders forums free breakfast events, exclusively for senior HR people. You can read what was discussed at our autumn HR leaders forum here. Our next forum takes place on tbc.

Why do they exist?
Our clients in HR leadership roles tell us their job is broader than ever. Operating in a volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous environment means they wear multiple hats.

They act as a confidante to their peers, a role model for their team, a leader within the business and as change instigators and policy implementers. Importantly they are also a skillful coach and influencer, supporting their organisation to reach its full potential. They deliver all of this while remaining personally resilient and helping others to do the same.

"The size of the forum, with everyone round the same table is great. It's intimate and it's not like a seminar where you walk around with a coffee and don't talk to anyone."HR director, online trading firm

Because of the nature of their roles, HR leaders don't always have close peers to share their challenges and explore creative solutions with. A Connor HR leaders forum is a place to have safe, detailed conversations about the real-life challenges faced by senior HR professionals. 

Who should attend?

  • HR directors
  • Heads of HR
  • People directors
  • Senior specialists in areas such as talent and organisation development.
