Engage Business Media’s third annual Employee Engagement Summit, held last week with a new record attendance of 500, is being universally acclaimed by delegates, sponsors and speakers as a roaring success as the Summit firmly establishes itself as the biggest and best of its kind in Europe.
From a scintillating scene setting opening keynote on the very purpose of work from former Employment Relations minister Jo Swinson, to packed focus group sessions, to more than 20 case study presentations from organisations as diverse as Harrods, Thomson Reuters, Heathrow Airport, the NHS, Vodafone, LV= and the Civil Service, the Summit had something for everybody.
Delegate Nihal Mbamba from the Ministry of Defence said “I thought the day went extremely well with lots of interesting case studies. It gave me a lot of ideas to take back to my team. I work in the Leadership and Engagement Team as an Engagement Consultant so the topics that were presented at the Summit were of great interest and relevance to the work that we do”.
Presenter Derek Tong, Editorial Manager at the CIPD, said “Congratulations on a terrific event yesterday – lots of buzz. I very much enjoyed the talks I was able to attend. Thanks for the opportunity to take part and contribute”.
And fellow presenter Sonya Rooke, Head of Organisational Development at Northern Ireland Water said “I thought the Summit extremely well organised and executed. I got a great deal from attending and would certainly recommend it in future”.
Never ones to rest on our laurels we already have a confirmed date of May 3 for our 2018 Employee Engagement. And another ‘must attend’ date for your diaries is our joint Evolution of Work/Internal Communications Conference on September 15 this year.
