These workshops are held at the HR Summit Expo, which is expected to attract over 200 HR professionals a day.

The Expo will also feature a number of activities including free corporate photography sessions, networking activities, and more. There’s also a chance to go in the draw to win a $2,000 Grand Prize when on completion of the expo passport.
