Stimulating presentations & conversation with CIPD Manchester

Join CIPD Manchester Branch for an evening of stimulating presentations & conversation via Zoom on 16 June from 17:45 to 19:30

Annual Meeting 2020

Our virtual event will begin with informal networking; an opportunity to meet members of the CIPD Manchester Branch committee, our Ambassadors and fellow delegates from our area membership.

We’re delighted to welcome leading HR professionals for three thought-provoking Ignite presentations. If you’ve never seen an Ignite presentation before, they are the presentation equivalent of ‘walking the tightrope’ Each presenter has just five minutes to get their point across, using 20 slides set automatically at 15 seconds per slide!

Ignite presentations

  • Flexible Working: Here today, gone tomorrow?
    Gemma Dale
    Lecturer and Flexible Working Expert

  • Resilience: Dealing positively with setbacks

    Director and Coach Kingfisher Coaching
  • Becoming an Agile Organisation

Following the Ignite sessions, you’ll have an opportunity to discuss key points raised with fellow delegates in small groups (via break-out rooms).

The evening will close with the formal Annual Meeting, with reports on activities and finance by your Branch Committee and voting on the new committee members.
