QLD Townsville Network

It has been more than six months since the onset of the COVID-19 global pandemic and it would be safe to say that 2020 did not go as planned for many organisations.

The impacts of COVID-19 have been felt far and wide across industries; and has forced organisations to quickly adapt in this unexpected crisis. Our final forum for 2020 gives us the chance to reflect collectively on what 2020 was like for us and our organisations.

A small panel of HR leaders from across Townsville will share their reflections of the year, as well as their outlook for 2021 and beyond. Please join us for an open discussion with plenty of Q&A. Seats are limited, and breakfast will be provided. Please registered ASAP to secure your spot.

This forum is suitable for:

HR Practitioners in all career levels and roles.
