On Thursday 28th November 2019, at the swanky Ham Yard Hotel in Soho, we’ll get together to celebrate and debate all the best ideas and successes in legal HR (and beyond!).
Facilitated by award-winning writer and broadcaster Declan Curry, our overarching theme this year is disruption and the day will include presentations, panel discussions and keynote speakers exploring topics such as the future of work, the importance of the ‘connected company’, how diversity & inclusion is changing in the world of work and other issues of current interest. It’s set to be a truly thought-provoking day of insight not to be missed.
What's in store
Theme 1 Disruption in the world of work
The future's not what it used to be. In this opening segment, we'll be looking at where work is heading generally with Futurist Katherine Templar Lewis kicking things off. Then we’ll be exploring the importance of the ‘connected company’ with MHR.
In our second theme of the day, we’ll be examining aspects of positive disruption around diversity & inclusion and the impact on workforce planning. Following this we’re delighted to have Emma Cusdin from Aviva sharing her experiences of being transgender in the workplace.
Theme 3 Current Issues
Many contemporary issues just can't be avoided, and cry out for a robust response from HR. In this segment we'll be looking at a number of such issues including the reality of data as a disruptor and Reggie Nelson, the young man who went 'from East London to the City', will be sharing his inspiring story of social mobility.

Theme 1: Disruption in the world of work
We have entered the Fourth Industrial Revolution. Disruptive technologies and trends such as Automation, Artificial Intelligence and the Internet of Things are changing the way we live and work. 80% of chief strategy officers feel underprepared for this disruption (Accenture 2019). As such they are missing out on the wealth of opportunities that this technological evolution is uncovering. Opportunities to release human capital, leverage collective intelligence and boost productivity.
Futurist Katherine Templar Lewis asks: How can we help businesses on this journey adopt a more human first mindset towards technology in the workplace, unlocking human potential to not just survive but thrive?
In this session MHR will explore the importance of the 'connected company'.
Theme 2: Disruption to diversity & inclusion norms
This session will explore how diversity & inclusion is changing in the world of work, looking at positive disruption, the impact on workforce planning and how to measure progress.
In this thought-provoking session, Emma Cusdin will share her personal experiences of being transgender in the workplace.
In this session Jason will explore People Analytics in Law and pose the question; what insights can data analytics uncover in HR?
In this session, the young man who went 'from East London to the City', will be sharing his inspiring story of social mobility.
