We are delighted to announce the date of our third Tap’d Solutions Forum for 2017, which will be held on Wednesday 11th October in London.

The Forum will focus on the subject of Transforming HR: The Skills & Strategies needed for 2020.

Through guest speakers and an open forum, you’ll hear:

  • Clarity around the key challenges facing HR in 2017 and 2018;
  • How the big challenges we face in HR can be understood better through your people and business data;
  • How the Future of HR is challenging the way we view our function;
  • About the skills of the HR team which will be needed to make this transformation happen;
  • Examples of where HR teams are already grasping this opportunity to engage business leaders.

As before, we will have a series of focused guest speakers (which will be announced shortly) who will give us great insight and context before holding an open session to learn from each other to get some tangible output.

The event will be hosted in South Bank, London – detail below. Places are definitely limited so please register your interest today using the form below.

I look forward to seeing you there.
