There will be Key Speakers over the three days including:






Our very own CEO, Dennis O’Donnell, will also be speaking at this prestigious event on the topic of: “Defining the Role of Leadership within the HR Function”.  In this highly engaging session, HR professionals will learn how to “raise their game” and move away from pure administrative aspects to adopting a more holistic view of how they contribute to their business. Dennis will share practical case studies that will help participants start thinking of the function as a significant part of the business and how to make a difference as a strategic function.

Waiting to meet you will be: Dennis O’Donnell – CEO,  Janine Bunning - Managing Director,  Fleur Blanford - Head of International Studies, Nicky Austin - Business Support Executive , Failan Saleem  - Marketing Director (CIM) and our Programme Managers, Antonio Agustin and Susan Joseph.
