Urbano People events are aimed at companies and individuals who work in or offer supplies to the HR, recruitment, employment and people management, talent and skills, training and development sectors. But like all Urbano events, our events are not exclusive so attract businesses and individuals looking for opportunities within these sectors. Non-members are welcome at any Urbano event.

Previous speakers under the Urbano People banner have included John Roberts, HR Director of Ford UK, Charlie Duff, Social Media Recruitment Expert, Graham Snowdon, Editor of The Guardian's Work Supplement, Craig McCoy, HR Director of Bupa and Professor Charles Spence of Oxford University.

Urbano events are proven catalysts for the development of connections, the facilitation of introductions between companies and individuals, the sharing of best practice and a gateway to new business opportunities.
