Our events

Every month, we run live Zoom events in partnership with RWK Goodman, which attract around 100 people. They last an hour and include a presentation by a guest speaker and a live poll.

Most of our guest speakers produce a blog, useful checklist or video which we circulate afterwards together with the results of our polls which are great for benchmarking purposes.

Please make a note of our forthcoming Zoom HR Hubs and contact Kate Allen to reserve your free place.
