How it works 1 Discover sessions offer you the chance to hear the most admired people leaders in financial services share the stories of what they’ve done to solve their most pressing HR challenges

How it works 3 Action sessions 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
