COVID-19/Coronavirus

The CIPD Festival of Work - updated 27 March 2020

In light of restrictions on events due to Coronavirus (COVID-19), the CIPD and Haymarket Media Group (who deliver events on behalf of the CIPD) are exploring all the available options, with regards to this event.

We appreciate this is a difficult time for all. Our intention is to offer you support and keep you updated on the event’s position during these unprecedented times, whilst we continue to work to deliver the best event experience for you.

If you have any questions, please contact us.

Review Haymarket Media Group's Coronavirus Policy and booking term revisions for all CIPD events.

“Because the future doesn’t just happen. We create it.”

Hannah works alongside a unique mix of physicists, mathematicians, computer scientists, architects and geographers to study the patterns in human behaviour – particularly in an urban setting. Her research applies to a wide range of social problems and questions, from shopping and transport to urban crime, riots and terrorism.

What is the practical impact of automation on the world of work, and how we can harmoniously integrate people and technology in the workplace? Join Hannah for her keynote on “Humans versus automation? Upskilling people to succeed in an AI-driven world.”
