On the 17 and 18 of April, 2012, IQPC (The International Quality & Productivity Centre) are hosting the ‘Workforce Planning & Management in Mining 2012’ conference at the Holiday Inn City Centre, Perth, WA.
It promises a very full day with some excellent keynote speakers/topics including: Continue reading
I went to a couple of the HR Summits last year and have to say that, on the whole, they were well worth attending. This year’s events look good too, not in the least because it’s the their 10th anniversary so they’re putting some extra effort into it.
Unfortunately the Sydney event has already been held (at Luna Park, which must have been a great venue), but Melbourne, Brisbane, and Perth are yet to happen.
Of course, being an all-round HR event, it’s not all relevent to those of us in the L&D/OD world, however, it’s got plenty that is and so is well worth checking out…I just need to hit the boss up for the money for the ticket now!!! Continue reading
Another event alert for you but I’m glad to say that this one’s for free!!! Cliftons (the organisation that provides training and event venues…very good ones too!) are hosting a couple of forums on Change Management. Aside from being free of charge to attend and having several good speakers lined up (as well as the panel discussion), these things are also great from a networking point of view.
The first one is in Melbourne from 5.30pm to 7.30pm on the 13th of Oct and the second is one is in Sydney, 5.30pm to 7.30pm on the 20th of Oct (both at Cliftons of course).
The website states… Continue reading
I know, I know, I generally don’t do posts on generic HR stuff but the HR awards are pretty big and they’re run by HC Mag, where I get a fair bit of info for this site, so it seems only fair to do a bit of a plug for their main event.
This year’s HR awards are on Friday 28th of October at the Hilton Hotel in Sydney. The blurb from the website says… Continue reading
If I’m absolutely honest I wouldn’t normally have done an event alert for the HR Summit. Don’t get me wrong, it’s a great event (indeed, it’s possibly Australia’s largest HR focussed event) with some outstanding speakers, but it’s quite a lot of money to spend if you’re in the L&D/OD world as the topics obviously tend to cover the far broader HR issues, which means you can end up spending a lot of time listening to stuff that’s interesting but not really relevant to your area.
However, I’ve had a look at the agenda for the Brisbane event next month and I have to say that there’s a fair bit in there that I’d be keen to hear, including: Continue reading
Like the last event alert, I’m afraid this is another one for those of you with a very understanding boss and/or board and a decent travel budget (if so, luck you!).
