HR in the Boardroom

HR in the Boardroom is a high level, innovative and exclusive development programme specifically designed for HR directors from large/complex organisations who seek to have greater impact and deliver greater value to their board, CEO and chairman.

The programme is delivered by FTSE and Fortune 500 CEO confidant Steve Tappin and global engagement specialist Wayne Clarke, formerly of Best Companies, who has advised boards in 30 countries on driving growth through people engagement.

HR magazine has come together with Steve and Wayne to set up a high level HR director group. It is a combination of experiences, lessons and insights from all their work with hundreds of CEOs and HR directors. There are a series of private events throughout the year with specialised 1:1 mentoring sessions and access to top CEOs and chairmen, all held under Chatham House rules.

And it's for one reason only: to pool the depth of experience we collectively have to help HR directors play the role they’re capable of in driving growth.

Participation is by invitation only. To register your interest, please click here
