Description

Are you an HR Director, Head of HR, Talent Development, Learning or accountable for Employee Engagement?

Founded in 2018 the Talent Gathering is the newest and fastest growing conference designed specifically for Learning and HR colleagues in Scotland.

On the 3rd October 2019 at BT Murrayfield we'll be looking at how HR and Learning can help create a culture that drives a fantastic colleague experience. Our speakers will share their thoughts an opinions on culture and colleagues experience, before taking to the stage for a panel Q&A.

Joining the speaker panel for the Talent Gathering 2019 are;

Professor Damian Hughes, combines his practical and academic background within sport, organisation and change psychology to work as a trusted adviser to the business, education and sporting elite, specialising in the creation of high performing cultures.

Damian is the author of Liquid Thinking, Liquid Leadership, How to Change Absolutely Anything, How to Think Like Sir Alex Ferguson and The Five STEPS to a Winning Mindset in addition to the three acclaimed sports biographies of Sugar Ray Robinson, Thomas Hearns and Marvin Hagler

Fiona Whitakker is the Head of People and Organisational Development at North Lanarkshire Council

Having moved into a career in the public sector in Scotland two years ago, Fiona is relishing the many and varied challenges that her role as Head of People and Organisational Development for North Lanarkshire Council brings.

Over the course of her 25 year career in HR she has worked in a wide variety of sectors, beginning in the Whisky Industry in Scotland and including significant experience within the global pharmaceutical industry with GlaxoSmithKline, a spell with BP in London as part of their Global Refining and Marketing Division and latterly with FirstGroup in the Transport Industry. As part of this she has worked extensively in Europe, the Middle East, Africa and the US.

A common thread in Fiona’s career has been her involvement in successfully leading HR teams to deliver large scale organisation transformation efforts and she is in her element amongst the thorny workforce challenges facing local government which include digitisation of local services, delivery of community engagement and empowerment and the integration of health and social care services in partnership with the NHS.

Never known for being been shy to engage with change, Fiona is never happier than when she is leading “in the trenches with her troops” and she credits some of her most rewarding career experiences to time spent partnering with valued HR and business colleagues to drive and deliver multiyear strategic programmes of work.

Nigel Payne, a change-focused leader with a worldwide reputation and a unique grasp of media, learning and development in the public, private and academic sectors

Nigel has been involved in corporate learning for over twenty-five years. He was appointed in April 2002 to head up the BBC’s Learning and Development operation. Under his leadership, his excellent team transformed the learning function and put it on the corporate map.

He left the BBC in September 2006 to start his own company that is focused on building great workplaces by promoting creativity, innovation, values based-leadership and learning and the link between them.

He teaches on the CLO Doctoral Program at the University of Pennsylvania. His first book is called, The Learning Challenge: Dealing with Technology, Innovation and Change in Learning and Development. His second book focusses on leadership development and came out in 2016. It is called Building Leadership Development Programmes That Work. His new book on building and developing a learning culture will be published at the end of December 2018.

He presents a monthly TV programme (Learning Now TV), shares a weekly podcast (with Martin Couzins) called From Scratch. He regularly speaks at conferences, writes articles for magazines and journals about development, technology and leadership.
