The LEAP Difference:

LEAP HR: Higher Education 2024 is a high-energy, high-impact, fully immersive experience. We believe the traditional conference format is not fit for purpose, so we’ve ripped it up and started from scratch. When you looked inside the agenda, you will have seen three main types of session:

Discover Sessions

Develop Sessions

Action Sessions

offer you the chance to hear the HR leaders in oil and energy sharing the stories of what they’re doing to maximize the impact of their team and function on the business

provide you with the unique opportunity to have your burning questions answered and move beyond the ‘what’ and the ‘why’ to get to the ‘how’

are designed to help you work with your team to set a clear, bespoke action plan of what you are going to change when you get back to your business to ensure you get a fast ROI

“It was definitely unique, meaning it was not the typical format for a conference, but that was very refreshing. I really enjoyed the format of the presentations, and the opportunity to discuss each topic after the presentations was highly beneficial. The numerous opportunities to network with my peers were icing on the cake. Again, it was unlike anything I've ever attended. So, I did really enjoy it. Great.” - Monty Bell, Head of HR, San Diego Airport Authority

"I like the style of your conference, like last year, how there would be a speaker, and then we would go through a series of questions, and then we did a round table. This style allows you to connect with the people that you're sitting with. People did a great job to not sit with the same people every day without instruction. Which allowed you to get different perspectives each day of the conference… it really embraced the networking component without a designated networking session." - Nicole Devore, Vice President of Human Resources, energyRe

I just really appreciated the format. It was a, it was way different than any other conference where you just go, and you listen to a speaker and then you leave. So, I really enjoy the format of how we do their conferences." - Traci O’Brien, Manager of Talent Strateg, Cleco Corporation
