Five reasons to attend our HR and People Conference

The SFHA's HR and People Conference is a virtual event, taking place over two half-day sessions on 12 and 13 August. 

Posted In

In just under a week's time, on 12 and 13 August, we are holding our first SFHA Live! virtual conference, and it’s focusing on our changing workplaces and the biggest challenges facing our people today. 

We can’t promise you won’t hear the phrase 'the new normal', but we can promise to provide you with an event that will help to build your skills and enhance your professional development.

Here are the top five reasons to attend: 

1. Hear from expert speakers.

‚ÄčWe’ve gathered speakers who are experts in their fields and are passionate about what they do. They will be exploring how you recruit remotely, how to nurture culture and build thriving organisations, how to inspire teams through open thinking and creativity, and looking at employment law. 

Shona Marshall is a learning and talent development specialist with a passion for unlocking talent to drive personal, team and organisational performance. 

She said: "With remote working here to stay for many, I'm looking forward to exploring how leaders can re-skill and up-skill their employees to adapt and deliver in this every-changing 'now' of work."

2. Flexible, sustainable and easy to attend

Forget disposable coffee cups and the early morning plane, ferry or train journey to make it to an early registration, with our virtual conference, you will hear from industry experts from the safety of your home office (or couch) and your own cup of tea.

The conference is over two half-days, so it’s fits in with your work schedule. Urgent call? You don’t need to miss a session with on demand replays – watch any of the sessions again for three months afterwards.  

3. There's no monopoly on good ideas

How do we tackle the challenges facing our organisations? By coming together to collaboratively develop new ideas and solutions for the future. 

We have speakers from the housing sector talking about how they are finding new solutions for their tenants and communities, and our sector panel will discuss how the pandemic has changed what they do, and how they will do it in the future, in the session called 'what I’d change, what I’d keep the same and what I don’t know yet'.

4. We’ve gone transatlantic

Based in San Francisco, Dr. Emily Anhalt is a psychologist and emotional fitness consultant who has collaborated with some of the fastest-growing technology companies in the world, including Google, Asana, TEDx and Microsoft. 

She is going to talk about why a true culture of mental and emotional health must be built from the inside out.

5. Build your network from home

In addition to virtual Q&As, you can chat and connect with colleagues from wherever they are based. Catch up on the serendipitous connections you've been missing in scheduled networking breaks.
