Our Members’ Day, held on the 9 July, is a wonderful opportunity to meet your MPs and network with your peers. Many a visit has been arranged of the back of an informal chat at our APPPG and these are vital to ensure that your MP understands your business and how they can support you in Government. This year we are also looking forward to hearing from Kevin Green, former Chief Executive of the Recruitment and Employment Confederation and former HR Director at the Royal Mail, at our morning conference. He will focus on how to attract, retain and develop employees – arguably your biggest asset – looking at upcoming challenges, future trends and whether AI really is a threat to workers.
