Join the debate

We are the UK’s leading specialists in the recruitment of HR Professionals; since 2001 we have been partnering with the HR community in order to encourage engagement and collaboration in the HR arena.

  Our HR Directors Boardroom events, in conjunction with Eversheds Sutherland (International) LLP, provide a perfect opportunity to facilitate this.

The format for our HRD events is typical of any boardroom debate with a Chairperson and guest speaker. Prior to the current pandemic, these debates would have taken place in a boardroom environment. To ensure we can continue to provide you with these valuable events, they are now conducted using an online platform.

We are always looking for passionate HR leaders to take part and lead a debate, our  HR programme for 2021 is currently being developed. If you are interested in leading a debate please email amanda.underhill@ashleykatehr.com
