The HR Congress in Amsterdam was a one-of-a-kind event, attended by enthusiastic HR professionals and seasoned thought leaders, all who helped contribute to an engaging and invigorating experience. However, the Congress’ success was largely due to a unique panel of keynote speakers who spared no effort in delivering captivating presentations. It can take quite a bit to pin 900 people to their seats, so this year we’ve upped our game to secure yet another amazing panel of keynotes at The HR Congress in Brussels on 28-29 November 2017.
