Event Details

We are delighted to announce that our first annual HR Leaders Conference will take place on 14February 2017.  This is an opportunity for all HR Leaders from across our region to meet with peers, network, learn and hopefully be inspired!  If you are a senior HR Leader (Director level, or senior Managerial level) we’d be delighted if you could join us regardless of level of CIPD membership.

In response to the CIPD Coventry & Warwickshire survey findings earlier this year we have designed the event around the theme: The Future of Work.

Our speakers represent a variety of perspectives on this subject including; Leadership, Careers and How to thrive in a VUCA World (“It's become a trendy managerial acronym: VUCA, short for volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity, and a catchall for “Hey, it's crazy out there!”! HBR, 2014).    

You are promised a fun, engaging and informative half-day development event.  There is much guidance and support for bringing more “heart” in to leadership styles and employee engagement strategies so the fact that we are running this on Valentine’s Day has not gone un-noticed.  



Opening, Welcome & facilitated networking on “Heart-led leadership”. 

Angela Roberts (Chair of CIPD Coventry & Warwickshire & Managing Director of The HR Consultancy & Karen Griffin, (Vice Chair of CIPD Coventry & Warwickshire & Director of Space2BE).


High Performance leadership in a disrupted and changing world of work

Led by

Simon Walker, Leadership & Future of Work Expert at

Business and work are being transformed and disrupted faster than ever through the impact of technology, globalisation and social change.  But for leaders, what behaviours, attitudes and habits are most helpful in enabling them to understand what is going on,  to make smarter decisions,  to enable and inspire their people and to get stuff done quickly in a rapidly changing world of work?

In this session, Simon explores five highly practical areas of focus that smart leaders should consider to better lead diverse groups through complexity and disruption.



Managing in a VUCA environment

Led by

Belinda Marklew, The Curve Group.


Volatility, Uncertainty, Complexity and Ambiguity.

The environment in which we are currently operating presents challenges that mean we need to change many long-held beliefs and practices if our organisations are to survive and flourish.

During this session, Belinda will share some practical steps that The Curve Group has taken in order to deal with these challenges.



Break & Facilitated Networking



How to Future Proof Your Career

Led by

Amanda Bolger, Director of Transform. 

What will careers of the future look like?  Amanda will facilitate an experiential session, which looks outwards into the world of work and our role as HR Leaders in shaping the careers of the future. She will also offer you the opportunity to look inwards at your own career and reflect on what you might need to do to ‘future proof’ your skills and experience. You will come away with a bespoke individual action plan. 


Close - by Karen Griffin, Vice-Chair CIPD Committee & Director of Space2BE
