The HR Executives Council brings together the most senior HR Executive who wants to optimize their performance and that of their business.  Our meetings are focused on the challenges our members find the most important and provide a platform to share the latest thinking, exchange ideas and network with like-minded peers. 

This is a business led council that will focus on three key aspects of leadership: business impact, people impact and professional impact.

Topics cover a wide range of aspects, from the vital questions of the world economy to big data and what you need to know. It directs attention to new and mature markets and fields of action for companies and regions and enables the joint exploration of visions and strategies. It also addresses key aspects as leadership such as which skills, missions and values do female leaders and male leaders offer and how can they make their talents available for business and society. 

Who should join?

Members will be the most senior executives responsible for human resources in their organisation, with a Global or EMEA remit.

Why join the Human Resources Executives Council?

The Conference Board Councils are very international and global, and there is much more analytical and scientific intellectual horsepower behind it compared to other peer networks I am a part of. This comes from both the subject matter experts, and the research and insights.

On one hand (the environment) is open, but on the other it is confidential, which allows that openness. It gives us the ability to present a very realistic picture about what is going on in our own company. This is not glossed over by marketing, but rather a very grounded and honest picture.

Michael Brecht, Vice President Human Resources EMEA, Avery Dennison
