Once again, we invite you to come and join us at what promises to be another inspiring and informative event for all those involved in the world of People Management and Development. Whether that is as someone working in HR or Learning and Development, or as a business owner or line manager keen to continually learn.

We will have another incredible line up of speakers, who will be delivering sessions that will give you plenty to think about, implement and in many cases inspire change.

We will update this page with details of the Keynote speakers for 2023 in due course but in 2022 we were delighted to welcome the following speakers:

Bev Thorogood, TEDx speaker and author of ‘The Business of Menopause’ and Founder of Floresco Training. Making the decision to resign from the Ministry of Defence at the age of 52, Bev has gone on to build a successful business partnering with organisations including Channel 4, The Royal Air Force, Southampton University and The London Clinic (among many others) to raise awareness of the impact of menopause on working women.

Graham Irons – Partner Howes Percival, Employment Law – recognised in the Legal 500 as having “a deep knowledge of UK employment law” and providing “practical and creative advice”. Graham is a regular speaker at a range of events and has a reputation for delivering fun and practical seminars and training. In his session he will be sharing some of the cases and trends their employment team have seen in 2022 and what he thinks 2023 will hold for employers.

Woosh RazaFounder of Woosh Ltd and Host of the Rainbows and Bullsh*t podcast – Woosh is a prolific campaigner and keynote speaker in all things ED&I, having spent the last decade heading up HR functions across a range of different organisations and co-chairing the CIPD Central London Committee. Woosh helps unlock employees’ authentic potential at work, through developing a culture of true inclusion where people feel they truly belong.

We also heard from Gateway’s Neurodiversity specialist, Hayley Brackley who shared her story and gave us some key insights as to how we can make our workplaces more inclusive for neurodivergent individuals.

Tickets for 2023 will be £100 + VAT each and include a delicious two course lunch and refreshments throughout the day. There will also be a raffle and lots of opportunities for networking!  

All profits from this event will go to our charity of the year!
