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.

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.

Originally scheduled for February 6th, this event has moved to Febriaru 27th due to the tube strike.

Our speaker at this event is Daniel Barnett, Employment and HR Law specialist barrister

Testimonials from recent speakers at Urbano People:

"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 knowledgeable 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
