Hot HR Summer: leaders making waves


PRESS RELEASE Hot HR Summer: New webinar series shines a light on leaders making waves in the industry

The team behind the UK’s leading online HR portal has launched a new series of live sessions with some of the country’s top business leaders, exploring the challenges facing workplace culture that exist today. 

Produced by HRZone, the Evolving Leaders series will take the form of four 30-minute online sessions with a live group chat for leaders to answer questions about organisational culture. The series is part of the title’s ongoing Culture Pioneers project, which aims to shine a light on people professionals and organisations who are committed to nurturing thriving company cultures. 

The first episode will feature Natasha Wallace, Founder and CEO of The Conscious Leadership Company, and subsequent episodes will include contributions from Judith Germain of The Maverick Paradox, executive leadership coach Karen Liebenguth, and Thom Dennis, CEO of Serenity in Leadership. 

“If leaders don’t rigorously question how they show up for their people on a continual basis, they will hold their organisation back from reaching its true potential. We’re launching the Evolving Leaders series, powered by Culture Pioneers, to explore the difficult but much-needed conversations all leaders should be having today”

Becky Norman, Managing Editor, HRZone and Co-creator of Culture Pioneers
