Why I will attend HR Tech Europe 2014

We are almost there. HR Tech Europe 2014 is on the 23 and 24 october in Amsterdam.

HR Tech is to me the best HR Conference in Europe. I always learnt something there.

Here what I expect this year. Here why I will attend HR Tech Europe again in 2014. Here my 4 main expectations.

On Big Data. You won’t be surprised. I love data visualisation. David McCandless will be there. Because it is not about to look at lots of data. It is all about to be able to see.
Also this year we will finally talk more about predictive HR analytics and fact based HR. Nothing new actually, but it seems to be quite difficult for Europe to work seriously on predictive HR. We’ll see.

On the Future Workplace. Transparency. Transparency. Transparency. The word of the year? I am happy to see that Glassdoor will be there too.
More specifically on the future of workplace learning, I like the quote “Effective decision-making and knowledge sharing VS Training and KM acquisition”, further I am looking forward to hear about themes like ‘virtual academy’, ‘Self-directed learning’, ‘Cooperation’ and the idea we evolve from courses and resources to apps.

On the Social Enterprise. I am happy to see there is a full stream back on that theme this year. Looking forward to hear the last use cases. (Disclaimer, Virgin Media will bring his story built with Sei Mani, the wonderful team I am working with).
I expect also nice prospective talks on views like “from product and services to outcomes and experiences” and the uberization of the virtual market place.

On Talent Management. Building a future proof and irresistible organisation, customer centric, by empowered employees, developing ideas, engaged. Just key.

What would be your word of the year for this year HR Tech? Transparency is mine a priori.

Oh yes, Gary Hamel will be there. Don’t miss his keynote. Why can’t you?

The full agenda is here. Unleash your people!

Will you be at HR Tech Europe 2014 in London?

On 27 march I will attend the HR Tech conference in London. This spring warm-up conference will focus on how HR and IT can work together, how they can deliver a better strategic alignment, how they can, by changing their roles, change the business.


This conference about strategic HR and HR technology invite us to start to quantify the appetite for social and technological change inside our organisations.

A call for a focus change, for business driven HR, based on a new way to define performance management and talent management.

It will be the opportunity to have a look at the key drivers for the next generation of HCM and to understand the challenges of workplace 2020, where agility and new customer processes will ask new skills, new competences, more talent interaction and a real social HR.

Because HR Tech Europe 2.013 will be all about this…

I am delighted to attend HR Tech Europe in Amsterdam on october 24 and 25.  I just read the agenda of the conference and made a visual summary of what it will be all about.

It seems that HR is going to business isn’t? Agile and resilient culture transformation, performance improvement culture, connecting learning and talent initiatives to create real business outcomes, talent relationship management, problem solving skills, employee productivity, applification of HR, Cloud as enable business services vs. BPO, data animation, … and many more… see the draw.
