About the Event

Following the new measures announced by the Dutch cabinet we have decided to continue with a live event.

Below are the extra measures that we will be taking:

  • We will ask all attendees to take a lateral flow test before the event.
  • We will check Covid passports and test results at entry to the event.
  • There will be allocated seating.
  • The hotel uses Covid track and trace QR code for the Netherlands, so the 1.5m distance rule does not apply.


On 18th February we’re bringing senior HR & TA leaders together to share knowledge and source solutions to key talent challenges. This session will combine insight from senior HR & TA leaders of well-known companies who will deliver insight and expertise through presentations & Q&A as well as sharing experiences in an online breakout discussion. The topics are designed to help you navigate the coming months and beyond with content and conversation relevant for you, combined with innovative ideas  and solutions – whatever your budget.


What are the post-pandemic priorities for senior talent leaders and TA solutions providers? As the talent ecosystem in the Netherlands faces more change, talent shortages, new employment models and increased expectations of equity, inclusion and flexibility across the workplace, we will debate the following questions:

  • How can HR and TA Leaders plan and deliver the skills needed to realise their strategic goals?
  • How are new tools and approaches to employer brand, ED&I, and the candidate experience helping employers to compete for the best talent in a complex talent market?
  • How can organisations hire for retention and increase internal mobility to reduce attrition into 2022?

Who can attend?

Tickets are complimentary for senior TA & HR professionals. 

Please contact Andy Daniel if you are an industry solution provider/supplier and would like to be involved.

Why join? 

  • Learn a lot, be inspired – a wide range of topics are covered with expert speakers sharing analysis, insight and knowledge covering the full spectrum of issues relevant to the industry, ensuring you’re energised and full of ideas.
  • You’re in good company – participants are all senior talent leaders
  • Share your challenges and knowledge with engaging Q&A and discussion opportunities.
  • Meet relevant suppliers in a collaborative environment for advice and market insight. We curate our sponsoring partners to ensure their solutions are relevant to what you do.
