Good to know

Panel of 3 top HR professionals and an academic expert

Thursday, May 6th - 11AM until 12.30PM

For HR professionals

How do you leave your mark in times where change is the only constant? Is it (still) realistic to pursue a 'career plan'? How can you, as an employer, support your employees to create impact and remain future-proof?

Some of the many questions that we ask 3 top HR professionals during our exclusive virtual C-level talk: HR edition on May 6th, 2021. Join us! 

Virtual C-level talk with HR professionals

During this session, we explore the career paths of 3 top HR professionals.

Martine Vandezande (HR Director Mediahuis), Jan Van Acoleyen (Chief HR Officer Proximus) and Peter Geiregat (Chief People Officer Showpad) take place in our studio. They will take us through their unique career stories and elucidate on the moments that were really decisive for them. How do they look back on their career? What lessons learned do they bring to the table when it comes to supporting employees in their careers? Does the current crisis have an impact on people's career choices? 

Prof. dr. Sofie Jacobs (ass. prof. HRM Antwerp Management School) joins them for an academic reflection on current career trends and developments. 

Lesley Arens (founder ZigZagHR) takes the lead in the debate. She will guide our panel members through the topics and ask questions that we've always wanted to ask. 

Their stories will, without a doubt, inspire you.
