Meet our Speakers

All of our speakers are subject matter experts, each bringing passion and insight into the realm of being an HR professional. 

All of the “featured speakers” will be hosted in Toronto and broadcasted to remote regions (Kitchener, Sudbury and Ottawa). Each location will also include specific programming and presenters local to that region, offering unique and tailored perspectives for that location.  

As we continue to develop the program over the next few weeks we look forward to announcing more HR talent and presenters – stay tuned for more!
