Dear Colleagues,

I am pleased to advise that our 2021 Higher Education HR/IR Conference will be held virtually from 19 – 21 May. This will be an opportunity to “gather” and converse with a range of high-calibre presenters to discuss matters pertinent to  universities now and into the future.  The 3-day conference program will involve 8 x 45/60 min sessions “before and after lunch” on Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.

We hope you will be able to join us for this important on-line event and make this conference one to remember!
