As your new Chair of the Humber Branch I am delighted to welcome you to our Humber Branch webpage.
Many thanks to our outgoing Chair, Chris Brown, for all his hard work and dedication over the past few years. And I’m delighted to say we are not losing his expertise, as he is remaining on the Branch Committee as Vice-Chair and will be actively involved in many of our activities.
You can find details of your Branch Committee below. If you are interested in getting involved in branch activities or joining the Committee, please email me.
2018 will be another incredibly busy year for the branch, with a variety of events (available for booking through EventBrite) and our annual conference on Tuesday 5 June 2018. My hope is that our 2018 programme of events can be even better than last year, in terms of both attendance and meeting your needs.
2018 will also present many challenges for our region, including Brexit implications, skills shortages and the remaining challenges of the economic climate. That said, what a great time to be involved in Human Resource Management and Learning and Development within the Humber region!
There continues to be exciting opportunities for us as Humber business opportunities and investment increases on the back of our 2017 Hull City of Culture year. This has the potential to change positively the economic outlook of this region for decades to come, which is great news.
However, it is our profession that is so key to realising this opportunity because we need to find, retain, reward and develop the talent which will make all the above possible.
I would encourage you to get involved in any way you can, including at our branch events (detailed below) , where you can chat to any of our Committee members and make suggestions for how your branch can be even more effective. Please also keep in touch with us via social media, including: LinkedIn, Twitter and Facebook.
Finally, I look forward to speaking to you at one of our next CIPD Humber Branch events, whether it is the first time you have attended or you are one of our regular supporters.
