We understand networking can be a daunting task, especially when it comes to meeting new people and connecting with exhibitors. That's why we've created 1-2-1 meetings, to help you get in front of key organisations, designed to help you create better working lives.

The CIPD Festival of Work is all about collaboration, inspiration, and communication, and face-to-face networking bring this to life. As part of your festival experience, take advantage of 1-2-1 sessions, at a time that works for you, with our networking sponsors; Workvivo, Personio and Globalization Partners.

5 reasons 1-2-1 meetings help:
