These meetings have been designed for small groups of 20 Global HR Leaders to gather in informal settings and discuss matters concerning HR and Talent in Asia and Emerging Markets. The Chapman Consulting Group will also be discussing the latest trends that we are seeing on the ground, as well as presenting new research on the demographics and geographical spread of HR practitioners in Asia across a variety of industry sectors.
