Attendees at a conference in Dromoland Castle Hotel, organised by Shannon Chamber in association with Adare Human Resource Management, were taken on a whirlwind tour of technologies currently being released or developed when world-renowned technology futurist Sophie Hackford took to the stage to deliver the keynote address.
The conference, aptly themed ‘Shaping the HR & People Management Landscape: An Unfolding Future’, was aimed at senior executives, HR managers and practitioners in companies throughout the Mid-West to make them aware of the changing world we live in, the changing and challenging world of human resources and its impact on recruitment, learning and development and flexible working.
Adare Human Resources Management’s Derek McKay outlining the value of a conference of this nature, added: “We were delighted to be part of the conference, as anchor sponsor. It was hugely impactful. The presentations from a diverse set of speakers have certainly challenged the minds of people managers and HR practitioners. Key takeaways from the day for me were: the need to understand the different stages of innovation – incremental and transformational and how to get this on the leadership agenda and, that creativity is a key skill of the twenty-first century.”
