NOTE: This event is restricted to KPU alumni from the HRMT programs.

Opening Keynote Speaker:

Ian Cook Vice-President People Solutions, Vizier Inc.

HR Analytics: Data and the Future of Work

"Big data" and artificial intelligence are changing how we understand the world and how organizations engage with their customers and their employees. In this opening plenary session Ian Cook from Vizier Inc. will explore the impact these issues will have on HR and the future of work itself.

Luncheon Keynote Speaker:

Trevor Hughes, Deputy Minister of Labour, Province of BC

Changes to Employment and Labour Law in BC

Since the election in 2017, the new government of BC has reviewed much of the employment and labour laws and regulations that impact workers in BC. Many changes have been made. In this luncheon keynote presentation, Trevor Hughes will review the changes made to date and will hopefully provide us with a "peek" at what changes might come about in the future.

Closing Keynote Speaker:

Andrea Burk: Consultant, Canadian Rugby team World Silver Medallist, CBC & TSN Commentator

Building Perseverance in People and Organizations Closing

Organizations often struggle as they go through change and our employees face the stresses of change, work/life balance, long commutes, high housing prices etc. Andrea Burk knows what it's like to train, to strive and to compete at the highest level. In this closing keynote she will share with us her ideas on what HR professionals can do to help both employees and organizations to become more resilient.
