Heads of HR, People and Culture – Co-Creation of The Future of Leadership

Posted by The Change Creators

The HR, People and Culture departments are central to the success of businesses. With the ongoing instability and uncertainty in the world and the challenges this will give leaders and businesses, it is vital to come together to co-create solutions to help leaders in the creative industry.

We are excited to host a day to bring together an intimate group of forward-thinking Heads of HR, People and Culture to uncover, connect, problem solve and co-create a future fit leadership programme together. The challenges are an industry wide problem, and we invite you all to come together to be part of the solution.

Your host will be Joanna Howes, award winning international leadership coach who has over 20 years’ experience in the advertising industry.  Jo will be joined by an amazing guest speaker Matt Manners, CEO and Founder of Inspiring Workplaces and the Employee Engagement Awards.

On the day you will experience:

  • Opportunity to expand your network and connect with your peers
  • Alignment on the problems that need to be solved
  • Co-create as a collective to ensure we are growing leaders who can navigate successfully into the future
  • Learn new tools for your own leadership
  • Hear insights on how to increase engagement and the expectations from the HR role going forward from Matt Manners, CEO and Founder of Inspiring Workplaces
  • And if you can a glass of something at the end to celebrate the day

We are purposely keeping the day to a limited number to enable a great conversation and for you to have the time to really get to know each other for future support.

To avoid disappointment, book your space today.

Matt Manners

Matt is the founder and CEO of The Inspiring Workplaces Group Ltd.

He followed in his family’s footsteps for the first ten years of his career, living and working in London, Sydney and Boston helping organizations communicate with their customers. It was near the end of this period he began focusing on the CX and ultimately the number one influence on it…the employee experience.

The lack of appreciation of and investment in the EX by leaders and businesses drove Matt to invest all he had in the world to create The Employee Engagement Awards. To recognize and tell the stories of those that dared to try new things. Things that would enhance the people experience for the benefit of both them and the organization. Over five years The EE Awards (whilst recognising thousands of organisations) expanded around the world and evolved into much more than just engagement and awards. Evolving into a global community, an academy, a content hub, events and it also did awards.

So in 2020 it felt right to bring it all together in a new home called, Inspiring Workplaces. Bringing people, professionals and organisations together to change the world through the world of work is his life’s mission.
