Registration for the Kent HR Conference 2022 is now open!

Kent HR Conference 2018

After a two-year hiatus, the Kent HR Conference returns to the University of Kent’s Darwin Conference Suite on Wednesday 23 November, providing an opportunity for HR professionals and those in HR-related roles to come together with University of Kent academics and guest speakers to learn, network and spark ideas.

Now in its eighth year, this one-day event will give delegates an insight into the latest research, examples of best practice and tips and tools which could be applied in the workplace. Unlike previous years, the conference will not have an overarching theme, creating an opportunity for us to cover a wide range of issues faced by HR teams in the current social and economic climate. Talks and interactive sessions will run from 9:30am – 4:30pm with lunch and refreshments included.

Chris McCarthy, Kent HR Network Lead in and Business Relationships Officer at the University said, “This will be the first time that the conference has taken place face-to-face since 2019 so we are excited to be able to offer the opportunity for the network to come together again on our beautiful Canterbury campus to connect, share experiences and be inspired by what we believe will be a very insightful day.”

Tickets for the conference are available for £99, with a generous discount for University of Kent staff and students.
