Caspar will lead the discussion, reflecting on recent events and the ever changing landscape and needs of HR, both now and looking ahead. It promises to be an engaging and stimulating hour of discussion with some of Scotland’s finest employment lawyers.
The effects of CV19 and the low oil price are bound to feature in discussion but there will also be an opportunity for delegates to submit their own questions in advance for the panel to discuss/address on the day.
As ever, the event seeks to equip delegates with the essential information, know-how and skills to deal with the demands of 21st century employment law and personnel management in the company of fellow professionals and this year’s event will be no exception.
The cost this year is a token amount, to cover costs. Caspar Glynn and all panellists are kindly giving their time for free with any funds raised, in excess of minimal costs incurred by the Chamber, will be donated to charity.
We hope you can join us.
