About this Programme

Incorporating the insights of current board-level HRD’s, we will deliver a programme tailored to develop participants' capability in the areas most required. A great HR function builds people and organisational capability to deliver business strategy. CEOs expect their HR leaders to have functional expertise, but also require their HRD to be a commercially focused business leader.

Who Should Attend?

This programme is suited to those looking to progress to Group HRD roles. Candidates will likely already be HRDs of a business unit, region or function or Centre of Excellence (CoE) Leaders. It is also recommended for newly appointed Group HRDs looking to increase their effectiveness.

There are limited enrolment slots, in order to facilitate a supportive learning environment.

Benefits of Attending

  • Support in making the transition into a board or executive team HRD role, within a FTSE listed or similar size organisation
  • Develop the tools and skills to move beyond your core HR role and become a holistic business leader
  • Connect with an alumni network of peers and experts to support you through your career
  • External business insights ensuring you become an effective HRD and sustain your development through a six-month programme of blended learning, implementation, reflection and analysis
