What people say about this series

“Having attended the sessions, I can thoroughly recommend them.
Siân has invited some great leaders to share their views and engages them in interesting conversation. She asks some great questions, challenging them to provide their perspective. This results in wide ranging discussions and some great insights. There are learnings for everyone. They have been a very worthwhile investment of my time. Enjoy!"

Sue Swanborough

HR director

“COVID-19 Actionable Insights for HR leaders’ certainly lived up to its name! I found the discursive approach really refreshing. Siân’s interviewing style ensured the guest speakers’ points were highly relevant and she drew out some great insights. The presenters were drawn from a host of sectors which brought out a range of experiences and views and I was able to take something that I will be able to use from each and every one."

Louisa Latham

Leadership coach

“If you are looking for tips and advice directly from the HR leaders 'doing the job' as opposed to people talking around the subject, this series on COVID-19 fits the bill. With everyone working from home, things can be quite isolating and it was a great opportunity to hear what others are doing and thinking about the future. Although we can read about things, having the question and answer format made it more engaging."

Valerie Hughes D'Aeth

Director, VHD Consulting

“The Actionable Insights webinar presented by David Frost was an excellent use of my time during the COVID-19 lockdown as I gleaned a lot of sensible and pragmatic ideas and solutions that can be applied during and after the current crisis. At all times. It was evident that people are at the centre of operations and therefore the continued support we give them as HR leaders was crucial to maintain team/individual communications, commitment and trust. This is the time when our staff need to know how much we value them!"

Bill Nuttall

Willem HR

“I was delighted to have joined in the webcasts on COVID-19: Actionable insights from HR leaders presented by Eugenio Pirri, Dorchester Collection and Hayley Connor, Brewhouse and Kitchen. Both presenters communicated effectively and provided good insights on their current strategies to retain and upskill their talents during such unprecedented times. It was also great to hear that wellbeing programmes are running across a wide range of industries in these difficult times."

Gil Goncalves

Learning and development, Crisis

“It was great being able to take time out to listen to other thought leaders sharing their stories. It helps to know we are not alone and it was also a good place to pick up some ideas and tips. The way the questions were asked felt as though these were the questions I wanted to ask and uploading the handouts was brilliant – it was a perfect and simple way to immediately share stuff."
