Professor, author and expert on leadership development, Herminia Ibarra, will join us at HR Summit and Expo to share her approach on how to step up to bigger leadership roles through her sessions; ‘Leadership Development: How Can HR Reinvent Themselves by First Acting Like a Leader, Then Thinking Like One’.

Professor, author, thought leader and founder of Hot Spots Movement, Lynda Gratton, brings over 20 years’ experience to HR Summit and Expo 2017.

During day two of the regional HR event, delegate ticket holders will have the opportunity to attend two sessions with HR Guru Lynda as she discusses how the corporate world has changed dramatically over recent years, reshaped by the forces of technology, globalisation and demography, and how it is due to affect the future of HR.
