Urbano Communities

Urbano People

Since Urbano started in 2011, People is now one of our fastest developing communities, where workplace and employment are seeing the impact of high-profile law cases around diversity and equality, alongside technical innovations, communications, and the nature of work itself.

Urbano People brings together companies & individuals with a professional interest in this changing world, inc HR specialists, training & development,  recruitment, retention & management, employment  all under the many elements that make up workplace wellbeing. 

Those in our People community also have many events & connections to enjoy with those in other Urbano Communities, especially Build & UWACTE, where focus on diversity in revolutionising every level of companies in these sectors.

Urbano People regularly invites leading thought-leaders from across industry to address our People events. We also organise evenings & lunches where different members can mix with those whose businesses they can assist with HR & legal issues, to new office design. We also find tenders each week for People companies, including recruitment, workplace design, employee management software, leadership training and employment law.

Testimonials

"I was delighted to accept a recent invitation to speak at an Urbano People event in London.  Sharing with 60 professionals – from right across the HR and other sectors – the dramatic positive impact a consistent focus on engagement and enablement can have on business results, and the hard work involved, was enjoyable and rewarding.

The Urbano People audience were diverse and knowledgeable.  The questions and networking discussions following my presentation introduced new ideas and observations based on the group’s wide experience. I think the Urbano Network is great - both for  speakers and attendees - as a forum where professionals can share ideas and thinking and as a place to do - and enjoy doing - business."
Ella Bennett, HR Director - Fujitsu UK & Ireland


"I enjoyed speaking at Urbano. It was an opportunity to sell my strategy, business and vision which is rare when being asked to speak at events in my experience. The group of people were diverse, engaging and intelligent and I would encourage anyone looking to hear strong stories from across the sector to tell to attend an Urbano event!"
Jo Taylor, Head of Talent, Talk Talk


"It was great to speak to an audience who were both knowledgable about and engaged in the subject, unafraid to ask questions and keen to pick up the threads afterwards. Convivial and focused networking in a relaxed setting."
Graham Snowdon, Editor of The Guardian's Work Supplement
