Our second People Leaders Lab event is fast approaching. In this blog, we’re going to share what will happen on the day, and why it’s a must for HR professionals at every level.
The People Leaders Lab is a new programme of events we’ve designed to bring HR professionals together to talk about the topics that matter. We run it alongside our friends at Birketts
What will happen on the day?
We’ll be joined by Janet Scotcher, an HR professional and former Chief People Officer. She’ll talk to us about ways to transform HR using agile approaches, including:
- her leadership journey and HR career
- the HR transformation and change programme at Cambridge University Press & Assessment, where she previously worked
- her approach to this, the lessons she learned and the challenges she overcame along the way
- her advice on how to lead successful HR transformation and change programmes.
More about Janet
Janet has lots of experience taking organisations through cultural transformation, and now spends her time sharing her expertise with people on this very subject. She’s previously worked for Cambridge University Press & Assessment, becoming Group Director of HR and Transformation in April 2019. She was also Director of HR and Organisational Development at the Wellcome Sanger Institute where she worked on organisational change, HR services and partnering, learning and development, and employee engagement. As well as this she was Director of HR at Hinchingbrooke Health Care NHS Trust, and General Manager for Children’s Services at Cambridgeshire and Peterborough NHS Trust.
Why come along?
The People Leaders Lab is a unique opportunity to get insights from a leading expert, while also networking with like-minded professionals keen to exchange views and ideas. You’ll also learn from real-life workplace case studies and expand your understanding of different business sectors, all while boosting both your personal and professional growth.
By coming along you’ll also be doing your bit for charity – we’ll be donating the attendance fees for this event to the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity. This organisation helps people in Cambridgeshire with serious illnesses or life-limiting conditions, as well as those in need of end-of-life care.
When is it?
Thursday, 14 March 2024. The session starts at 8 am and runs for two hours. It’s at the Arthur Rank Hospice Charity Education and Conference Centre, on the outskirts of Cambridge.
