Fortune Magazine's 'Most Influential Consultant Alive' delivers Exculsive Workshop

Distinguished Fellow of National Academy of Human Resources, Global Adviser to CEOs & Corporate Boards and Bestselling Author Ram Charan has been confirmed as a speaker for the 6th Annual HR Directors Summit Europe (31st May – 1st June 2016, Okura Hotel Amsterdam).

Ram is known for his keen observation and analysis; he forms powerful insights that help business leaders face their toughest challenges in the areas of growth, talent development, corporate governance, and profitability.

Fortune Magazine called him 'the most influential consultant alive'. He has coached more than a dozen leaders who went on to become extremely successful CEOs, and authored the provocative article ‘It’s time to split HR’.

Jack Welch from GE described him as having 'this rare ability to distil meaningful from meaningless and transfer it to others in a quiet, effective way without destroying confidence’. Ivan Seidenberg, former CEO of Verizon said 'I love him. He's my secret weapon’.

Bringing 35 years’ experience of coaching CEOs to success, Ram Charan will also deliver a private workshop coaching HR professionals to make that step to the board, by operating as a lever for business success.

Over 150 HR Directors will gather in Amsterdam at the European HR Directors Business Summit. The theme of this senior level meeting is “Enhancing business performance through HR strategy”. Over 40 speakers, including leaders from eBay, Bunge, McDonald’s, Philips, ASML, Benetton, Bunge, The Dow Chemical Company and more will share their insights on how they attract, retain and develop talent, build inspiring leadership teams, and more.

Technology challenges, budget registration, globalization and the global economic changes forced HR Directors to review their people management strategies. At the same time future predictions have a huge impact on their decision and the programme for the HR Directors Summit will prepare for these challenges and opportunities.
