Symposium’s Talent Management and Leadership Development Summit on October 22 will now be held in Canary Wharf

Leading UK HR conference provider, Symposium, have announced a change of venue for their ninth annual Talent Management and Leadership Development Summit in London this autumn due to increased demand for delegate places.

The one-day event, which will be held on October 22, has been moved to the Hilton Hotel in the capital’s iconic financial district of Canary Wharf to provide increased capacity for what has become one of the stand-out talent conferences in the UK HR calendar.

“We are delighted to be able to secure a location with increased capacity and to be returning to work with Hilton in Canary Wharf once again,” said Symposium logistics executive, Anna Szyperska. “It’s a great venue and we look forward to being able to help more delegates understand and tackle their talent and leadership challenges this year.”

The event examines and explores the many changes, from new technology to changing demographics, affecting organisations. This combined with the global skills shortage during a time of growth are creating profound challenges in talent management and the development of effective leaders.

Senior HR practitioners in organisations are feeling a need to change their strategies in order to stay ahead of these challenges and to develop and retain talent as well as rebuilding trust and loyalty across their workforce.

The conference will examine how employers are thinking differently about talent management and leadership development in 2015, and delegates will learn from HR professionals who are at the top of their game when it comes to managing their people. The speaker line-up includes talent management experts from organisations such as Santander, Visa, Innocent, Greene King, Byron, Axa and the Chartered Management Institute.
