Delegates were mainly Human Resource Professionals. The conference showcased the most disruptive and innovative HR trends.

The Conference began with welcoming speeches by the President of the Board of Directors, Mr. Panayiotis Thrasyvoulou, who welcomed the participants and thanked them for their presence in this important event for the Association. He also thanked Mr. Alexandros Alexandrou for attending the Conference on behalf of the Minister as well as for the Ministry's decision to place the Conference under its auspices, acknowledging once again this great meaning to the Associations values.

An elite panel of global speakers was selected to share insights and ideas on the evolving role of the HR function as well as how we should be approaching this new era.

Alexander took everyone on a journey, or actually several journeys making each one to feel the power and the progression of strategic storytelling. Delegates had the opportunity to ‘experience’ the effects of good storytelling, but most importantly, got the opportunity to gain a deeper understanding of why and how storytelling works.

Nebel Crowhurst spoke about embracing a culture of constant feedback in performance management. River Island is three years into a transformation from a traditional performance management approach towards a coaching style of support and feedback. Nebel Crowhurst, Head of Talent at River Island, said that the principle behind the change is the notion that meaningful conversations should be happening all the time, rather than solely during the end of year appraisal.
