2013 is an exciting year for the CIPD as it’s the Institute’s centenary year.
The CIPD Scotland Centenary HR Conference is the first major event in the CIPD’s centenary celebrations and we really hope that you will join us for what is going to be a first-class event. We’ve had some excellent feedback about our speaker programme, as well as the move to Glasgow city centre, so I am confident that the centenary conference will be CIPD Scotland’s best yet.
The conference provides an excellent opportunity to gain valuable insights and innovative ideas from leading organisations including McDonald’s, London 2012 Olympics and Paralympics, RBS, Tesco Bank, Investors in People and the CIPD, as well as Steve Cram, one of the world’s most successful middle-distance runners.
Our Centenary Dinner is going to be a fabulous event. We’re absolutely delighted that Alan Sugar’s right-hand man, Nick Hewer, will be our after-dinner speaker.
We know that budgets are tight for many organisations, and I’m sure that you will be delighted to hear that we have reduced all of our packages for 2013. The move to Glasgow city centre means that all of our packages are now conference-only packages, and delegates can select their accommodation to suit their budget.
I hope you will be able to join us for what promises to be a truly inspirational conference.
Chair, CIPD Scotland
