Event Details


We are delighted to be running our 3rd Annual Bite-size Conference at York Racecourse, and do hope that you are able to join us.

Those attending will have an opportunity to join 3 out of the 9 workshops running - note that these workshops are 45 minutes in length so will offer bite-size insights into topics with as much depth as the time allows. There will be opportunity for short Q&A within the workshop time, as well as opportunity to network informally with fellow CIPD Members and non-Members who work with people in our region.

This has been a hugely popular event the last 2 years, fully booked each time, so early bookings are advised.

Each year we aim to cover a wide range of topics and this year these include: GDPR & Consent, Openspace on practical HR issues, Returners - Mythbusting (check out #CIPDBigConvo for more on families, parents & workplace), Listening & Clean Language, Wellbeing - case study from large organsiation, Working carers, L&D Linking LNA to Evaluation and gaining stakeholder support, Diability Discrimination & Sickness Absence, Building Resilience & Leading through uncertainty.

We are very thankful to our speakers for giving up their time to join us:

We do reserve the right to charge a £10 no-show fee to any CIPD Member unable to attend who does not contact us with apologies (except in exceptional circumstances). 

Non-members booking places, these places are non-refundable except on the rare occasion that CIPD North Yorkshire needs to cancel the event.  If you are unable to attend, you may send a substitute attendee if notified to not later than 1700 on 29 November 2017.

All of our branch events are organised by volunteers who give up their time freely to provide CPD opportunities for others in North Yorkshire, events are funded through branch funds, and our speakers (who at most receive expenses only) give up their time freely to prepare and present their sessions. With this in mind, if you do book on an event and find you’re no longer able to attend – please email and give your apologies to those involved with the event – we really do appreciate this, especially in advance where possible as this might allow us to avoid catering wasteage, but if it’s an unavoidable last minute cancellation we’d still like to hear from you.
