The "Inside Track"

Every year organisations will strive to “plan” the year ahead, they will work through their “strategy” and determine the most likely course of direction. 


Michelle will frame not only the connections of both People and Business, but arm you with the Mindset Change that we as People professionals must adopt to ensure that we are not only delivering from the outside in, but enabling the organisation to remain both competitive and sustained in the marketplace.

She will share practical ways that we can all influence and impact at a strategic level when building our own People Strategy.

Michelle is a strong believer that HR is not simply about people, that when we are really at our best, we are the pivotal point that can connect with every layer and every section of the organisation. We become a credible activist in strategy and delivery, enabling strong Communications, Inclusion, Engagement, and alignment across the organisation.


Join Michelle’s session as the perfect culmination of the day. 


Take what you have learnt from the sessions you have attended and understand how you can apply this after the event to really embed and sustain a framework that will work.
