HR executives and leaders attend ‘a meeting of minds’ at a series of Engage HR Forums
Executive recruitment specialists, Engage Executive Jobs, has announced Joanna Kane of Trailblazers Coaching and Consulting, as guest speaker for the second Engage HR Forum to be held on 21st May.
A highly experienced personal, leadership and team development coach, Joanna is also co-author of ‘The Suited Hippy and The Stress Junkie.’ For her talk, Joanna will be discussing emotional intelligence and how using emotional intelligence can help create the cultures that are needed to compete in this ever changing, ever demanding, world we live in.
Executive Recruitment Director of Engage, Sally Bennett, said: “Feedback from our first forum was extremely positive with our guests commenting that felt they had learnt something from the session; that they had made connections and felt like they were in a confidential and supported environment.
“Human Resource Management can be a lonely world, especially as in Dorset there are many stand-alone positions, so we launched the Engage forums as a vehicle in which to offer peer group support, advice and experience sharing at an executive level.
“Emotional intelligence is currently a hot topic and something our clients indicated they were keen to learn more about when applied to the workplace, so with Joanna’s experience we felt she would be the perfect speaker for our second forum.”
Attended by HR directors and leaders, the Engage HR Forums stand out from its contemporaries by its interactive nature and relaxed approach, whereby like-minded executives are able to discuss their issues and triumphs, boost their contacts and make high calibre connections with other HR executives.
Adding further stature to the events will be solicitor, Malcolm Scott Walby of Scott Walby LLP, who, in addition to the forum speaker will be on hand to talk candidly about any legal queries guests may have.
Sally said: “Although employment law is not the main focus of the event, we recognise that having a legal expert will be an asset to the Engage forums, and we are thrilled that Malcolm has agreed to come on-board.”
The Engage HR Forums are exclusive events for the clients and associates of Engage Executive Jobs, created to bring innovative thinkers and inspiring speakers together with like-minded HR leaders, adding an extra dimension to the services provided by the Bournemouth based executive search company.
