Earlier this month, leading UK HR Directors gathered at the Eversheds Boardroom in London to join Pamela Harding Group HR Director from The Law Society as she led the latest Ashley Kate HR Directors Boardroom forum.
Kim MacNamara – HR Business Director Ashley Kate HR Midlands and South and Amanda Underhill – Senior HR Recruitment Consultant for the London region welcomed an excellent mix of leading HR Directors and invited them to join a, ‘collaborative’ interactive forum with Pamela as she introduced the key topic of, ‘How to make HR more accountable’ and then initiated in-depth discussions around how HR leaders could ‘advance their HR systems effectively in order to drive a culture of self-sufficiency and positively impact the bottom line’ and discussed how in todays climate HR leaders are keen to promote a more accountable culture, one which is high performing and value added and how to do so with confidence and to learn how to overcome obstacles as and when they arise.
The event was chaired by Philip Davies – Partner of Eversheds and he fed back that Pamela had given a thorough overview of the project she had undertaken. He thought she had offered attendees a, “very practical and interesting presentation (which) helped to generate some excellent debate and discussion regarding the most significant barriers to change that organisations can face and how they can be overcome.”
We all agree that one of the top benefits of HRD Boardroom attendance is the networking value. Where else can you find leading HR leaders facing the same issues as you and your organisation? Are there solutions you’re not aware of? Our market leading events provide HR leaders with a secure forum opportunity to debate topics that are relevant and topical and allow HR directors to clearly focus on key issues that will affect the future of their HR function. Pamela commented after the debate that she thought the event, “Was such a great forum …organised really well and attended by people with the appropriate level of experience from a range of industries that made for more fruitful debates and information sharing”.
In addition, all attendees were unanimous in highlighting that the forum provided them with opportunities to, share experiences with fellow HRD’s and was ‘very relevant to their current transformation programmes’ and it was ’good to know that other organisations have the same challenges’.
