People Power Coronavirus Update

In light of recent developments regarding coronavirus (Covid-19), we wanted to verify the status of the People Power event, planned to take place 17th June 2020 at Northumbria University Newcastle.

At this stage, as the event is still 3 months away, we are planning to go ahead with the conference on the 17th June. The COVID-19 pandemic is throwing up massive challenges for employers, and we hope to run the event and offer your business support and advice on managing, leading, engaging and developing people – possibly more important now than ever before!

However, given the uncertainty of the situation we have put a contingency plan in place should government guidelines/advice on public health mean we’re unable to run the event in June.

We have been working closely with our partners and stakeholders, and have now settled on a course of action.

Should People Power not be able to go ahead as planned in June, we will postpone it until Friday 18th September, staying at the same venue - Northumbria University Newcastle. If we do need to postpone the event, your tickets will be automatically transferred to the new date, so please do provisionally hold this date in your diary, in case we need to use this alternative date.

We will be observing government guidelines and watching how the situation unfolds closely, and will review this in the coming weeks. We will of course be in touch to inform you of any changes.

In the meantime, we are sending best wishes to you and your loved ones during these worrying times.

If you have any questions at all, please do not hesitate to get in touch.
