HR Summit

We are very excited to announce the guru line up for the 2014 HR Summit and Expo taking place this October 20 – 22 in Dubai. The HR Summit and Expo is the region’s largest gathering of HR professionals. More than a decade of thought leadership has made the summit the ideal platform to advance the HR profession in the Middle East and beyond.

Over the last few weeks, I’ve noticed a considerable amount of attention focused on Generation Y from both the media and business world. The May 20 issue of Time Magazine led with a cover story labelling them the ‘Me, Me, Me’ generation: narcissistic, fame-obsessed, and self interested; Meanwhile PwC reported findings from a comprehensive Next Gen study of its Gen Y employees.

The ability of CEOs to develop ‘superstar’ talent is the difference between success and failure in the business world, one of the UK’s leading sports executives has said in the build-up to an important new leadership summit in Dubai later this month. Mike Forde, former Director of Football Operations at Chelsea Football Club, says the race for talent has never been so critical as it is at present, and talent management is a primary responsibility of the CEO or key leaders, and not a HR function.

The HR Summit and Expo is just around the corner. This year the show will host 48 free HR seminars for you to learn from, 47 leading HR service and solution providers to help you in your operation needs and over 1500 HR professionals for you to network with – all for free and all for you.

We understand you must be busy and your time is precious…
