Urbano People networking events bring together companies and individuals across the HR, employment, management, recruitment, training and development sectors to expand their knowledge bases, and build connections and develop opportunities for themselves and their companies.

We invite brilliant speakers who are setting agendas for their sector or have amazing experiences and stories to share to present on a topic that will attract a diverse audience.

The events are informal and relaxed, with plenty of time to engage with the speaker and the other senior corporate and business representatives present.

Our speaker at this event is Ella Bennett, HR Director of Fujitsu.

Ella is responsible for Fujitsu's 200-person HR department and oversees all aspects of HR delivery for its 12,000 UK and Ireland employees.

Ella Bennett, HR Director, FujitsuShe is the driving force behind a number of significant business programmes that are helping reshape Fujitsu and position it for today’s economy. These include establishing a new approach to staff engagement and a talent improvement programme alongside a fundamental reorganisation of the HR department to facilitate business success. This work was recognised in 2012 by the CIPD Award for Building HR Capability.

Ella's presentation will look at three core areas - engagement, enablement and results - alongside the use of new technology, IT and social media to improve communication at all levels of the company.

This event will especially appeal to 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 to connect with this audience, but also from those with an interest in social media policy and implementation, IT and technology, etc.

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.

"I enjoyed the Urbano event. It was an opportunity to share 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 to attend an Urbano event."
Jo Taylor, Head Of Talent, Talk Talk PLC
