Conference Agenda


Lunch and Networking

After lunch, the conference splits into 2 streams that you can choose between:

New to HR stream: for those newer to HR to provide ideas on solving issues!

OR Advanced Stream:

for those who have been in HR for a few years, and are in more senior HRA roles.


Final action planning session and conference close at 3.40pm.



Solving your HR challenges

We’ve had different themes over the years but every year it’s the discussions about how to overcome the challenges of being in an HR Advisory role that attendees say are the most useful. So for 2019 we’re taking onboard feedback and having more think tanks and discussions about how to solve issues - so you leave with real solutions!

Day 2 of the conference starts


The speakers were fantastic and the information was presented in a way that made me feel confident about going away and using the tips and ideas I'd learnt.

What do people say about attending Elephant HR conferences?

I loved every minute of this conference! Usually when I hear the word conference I run a mile because I find that the language used and the atmosphere are far too corporate and it's hard to take in. This was the complete opposite! It was by far the best HR event I've been to.

It was really nice to get to meet other people from other organisations and hear the problems they face and also some of the things they have put in place. I will certainly advise other colleagues to attend the next one.

The conference was very well organised from the onset. The choice of presenters was excellent. This has been the most meaningful event that I have attended in my HR career - therefore I very much look forward to attending next year.

It was a great conference. Really thought provoking and plenty of time for group contributions too.

The HR Advisors conference explored a wide range of an HR Advisor role, from your own

personal development to attracting and retaining top talent in the market. Interesting topics

which aren’t often found in an HR conferences. The conference showed you where HR is

now and where it is headed while providing you with top tips and tricks for how to help your

organisation keep on the fringe.

I loved the practical use aspects and the board range of topics and that it was all very forward thinking and useful to what we do in this field. I really liked the balance of personal professional topics/challenges and workplace topics/challenges. I will personally take stuff

away for my own development as well as stuff I can apply and change in my workplace.

Very helpful, had lots to report back to my team on. Would recommend attendance.
