Previous speakers have included John Roberts, HR Director of Ford UK, Charlie Duff, Social Media Recruitment Expert and Graham Snowdon, Editor of The Guardian's Work Supplement.

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.
