Last year's conference was officially brilliant. 89% of the people
who returned evaluations thought the conference was 'very good'
or 'excellent'. The other 11% rated it as 'good' and must have been
having a bad hair day. This year we're aiming to thrill all 100%
We have a mixture of speakers talking about the latest thinking
in HR. Five internationals will be travelling from the other side
of the world especially to tell us of global trends in human resources.
Two of these will be experts from the US, including Kevin Wheeler
who amazed everyone with his perceptions and predictions at last
year's conference. Two will be coming from Europe, one of whom works
throughout the world and spends much of his time in Switzerland.
Our fifth international speaker will be an Irishman who was educated
in New York and Perth, gained experience in Asia and is managing
Australians and New Zealanders from Sydney.
The rest of our speakers are based in New Zealand, but a high percentage
of them weren't born here, which indicates that HR truly is a global
There will be a mixture of practitioners, academics, consultants,
a cabinet minister and even a CEO or two presenting. None of them
will try to sell you anything, other than a different way to view
the world we live in. They are all recognised in their area of expertise.
We are expecting to receive registrations from all over the Asia
Pacific region as our reputation for delivering leading edge information
has spread beyond our shores, though most of the delegates will
be people like you - working in HR at the coal face.
Offering a mixture of opportunities to learn in 'how to' fringe
workshops, a chance to visit interesting sites and become involved
in forums and interactive sessions, as well as hearing from respected
'thought leaders' who will leave your thoughts spinning and brains
full, this conference will provide lots of answers, yet will ask
even more questions. The usual networking opportunities will be
there along with time to unwind and reflect.
The price is the same as it has been for the last four or more
conferences. With three full days of high quality sessions, most
meals and all snacks covered, this has to be the best value conference
on offer anywhere.
In addition we provide two days of Expo which will supply you with
information on all things HR, and you will also have many chances
to win substantial prizes. Last year's prize-giving took nearly
an hour to dispense with dozens of great gifts from software products
to wine to training courses.
If you think that nothing's changing in the world of work, or question
why we must learn from a wide range of talent, including international
'gurus' when we have lots of locals who already know it all, then
this conference isn't for you. This conference is for serious change
It's not for the faint-hearted, nor for the wimps, so don't leave
home unless you're prepared to contribute, to grow and to laugh.
Make this conference the highlight of your professional development
