What is a Deep Dive?

These breakfast deep dive sessions will provide you with an opportunity to join a highly-interactive group of senior higher education leaders to dig deep into the very latest strategies enabling future focused HR leaders build influence and make change happen.

Before the conference days begin, these sessions will allow you to spend time engaging in a smaller group with a pair of presenters who will help you rethink the way you plan and prepare to transform your people function. Leave with an in-depth knowledge of what works – and what doesn’t – and quiz the speakers to ensure you can implement change effectively.
