Parramatta Event #2: HR Capability in the M&A Process

Speaker: David Payne
Position: Group Manager People & Culture Services
Company: Sydney Water

"Australian M&A market set for a bumper year..  in addition to the major markets, we’re also focusing on Western Sydney as an M&A hot spot" -  KPMG Newsroom, 20/02/2018

HR is commonly called upon to support Strategic Mergers, Acquisitions and Insourcing sales bids. Often the HR component is the most critical to the success of process but in most companies, they occur so infrequently HR does not always build the capability, capacity and tool kits to support the project.  

Join the discussion led by David Payne, a senior generalist HR manager, who has lived and built the HR components of a HR M&A team; if you’ve never support an M&A project hear about experiences, case studies and the overall process. If you have supported a M&A project, then join the discussion and share your experience.  

This is a practical and informative session on why and how HR is so important in the M&A process.

Parramatta Event #1: Operationalising Diversity

Speaker: Shelley Tate
Position: General Manager Organisational Capability Human Resources
Company: Allianz Australia Insurance Ltd

The business case for Diversity is proven. We get it. But few organisations are resourced with a specialist D&I team. So how does a generalist HR professional stay abreast of best practice and make things happen as part of their day job?

Shelley Tate, seasoned HR exec, joins us to discuss ideas on operationalising diversity in a pragmatic way that does more than just tick the reporting box.
