Dubai, 12 November 2020: HRSE (HR Summit & Expo) 2020 announces today that the seventeenth edition of its annual HR event is being delivered virtually this year.

A first of its kind for the region, HRSE (HR Summit & Expo) 2020 can be experienced from people’s laptops, mobiles, or tablets, from 15-18 November. Speaking about the event Tina Newton, Program Manager for HRSE (HR Summit & Expo) 2020, said “In our efforts to bring our regional and Global HR community together to tackle some of the biggest workplace challenges ever faced, we have decided to make HRSE (HR Summit & Expo) 2020 a completely virtual event. This year’s summit experience will provide an unrivalled opportunity for HR leaders to experience four transformative days of knowledge sharing.”

Focused on the theme ‘New World. New Ways. New Thinking’, the agenda will cover all the hard-hitting issues keeping HR at night – skills needed in the new normal New age leadership, Engagement and Productivity, Diversity & Inclusion, Digital HR Transformation, Digital Learning & Development and many more. The summit also features 12 certified virtual HR Workshops run in association with partners such as the Society for Human Resources Management (SHRM) and the Association for Talent Development (ATD).

The show is also known for its stellar line-up of headline speakers such as Malcolm Gladwell, Dave Ulrich, Kory Kogan, Marcus Buckingham, Fons Trompenaars, David Shing, Mark Pollock and many more who have been a part of the event before. This year, HRSE is headlined by Peter Cappelli, Terence Mauri and one of the most widely recognized figures in science in the world today – Dr. Michio Kaku, a Top Theoretical Physicist, Best-Selling Author and Populizer of Science & STEM.

Sharing his views on the future of work in a post-COVID world, Dr. Michio said, “AI and high tech will crush the coronavirus. The coronavirus, instead of disrupting the march toward a digital world, has actually accelerated it, vastly strengthening the current revolution towards a digital, virtual world. Furthermore, AI and high technology will actually conquer the virus, by rapidly locating outbreaks and hotspots of the virus as they occur, identifying and isolating super spreaders, decoding the genetic weak spots of the virus, producing a safe vaccine in record time, and eventually crushing the pandemic. For the first time in human history, AI and high technology will allow us to vanquish this ancient but deadly enemy.’’
