How it Works

We believe the traditional conference format is not fit for purpose, so we’ve ripped it up and started from scratch. When you look inside the following agenda, you will see three main types of session:

  • Discover sessions offer you the chance to hear the most admired people leaders in manufacturing
    share the stories of what they’ve done to solve their most pressing HR challenges
  • Develop sessions provide you with the unique opportunity to have your burning questions
    answered in a room full of your peers and move beyond the ‘what’ and the ‘why’ to get to the ‘how’
  • Action sessions are designed to help you work with your team to set a clear, bespoke action plan of what you are going to change when you get back to your business to ensure you get a fast ROI
