With over 30 years of management experience in leadership and organisational development, learning, recruitment and general human resource leadership, Mark is no stranger to the myriad of HR Polices and processes used to manage people. 

Mark will provide a personal view around how he sees HR policies and practices changing and evolving as a result of the changes forced upon us through COVID.  What needs to stay, change, amend or delete.  With all that we know now, and are aware (or unaware) of what’s coming, are our policies still fit for purpose and do they support changing organizational cultures?

11.20am    Connecting Powerfully to Lead Impactfully - Cassie RomaFounder and Director, CR&C

The world seems to be spinning at the speed of life these days. When it comes to life, work and multi-media, the world is moving faster than we've ever seen before - even as we seemingly sit still waiting for the world to start moving again in the midst of a pandemic. Communication, connection and compassion are now the most important building blocks for strong leaders.

With significant shifts in our world of work, HR is going to need to take the lead, to be the leaders of change. To shift mindsets and draw out the best in people, to build a workforce that is resilient and prepared, Cassie will bring all of us together by untangling what we thought we knew about how we lead, communicate and bring hope, light and inspiration to work in the future.
