HRD 2006

The Chartered Institute of Personnel and Development (CIPD) are holding their annual learning and development conference and exhibition on 4-6 April 2006 at Olympia in London.

Now in its 21st year, HRD aims to keep people management and development professionals up to date on key issues.

The conference is designed to provide delegates with the opportunity to network with other professionals in the industry and hear how leading organisations have approached and overcome key challenges within their business environments. The CIPD says this year's event has over 100 speakers, providing case studies, interactive workshops and training updates. Speakers include:

  • Sir Bob Geldof, speaking about 'Achieving your goals'
  • Professor Rob Goffee, from the London Business School discussing 'Why should anyone be led by you?'
  • Professor Robert Winston, author and BBC presenter delivering a masterclass on 'Making the most of the human mind'

The event also marks the launch of the CIPD Learning and Development survey 2006. According to the CIPD, the report is expected to show that learning and development professionals are having their budgets for training squeezed as a result of tighter economic circumstances, with belts being tightened most significantly in the public sector (42% of public sector organisations are thought to have seen their training budgets cut compared to 30% in the private sector).

The CIPD says 300 suppliers, covering many aspects of learning and development, will feature in the HRD 2006 Exhibition which runs alongside the conference.
