The UNLEASH team and I have kept ourselves busy with all the joys and tribulations that come with a change program, and our recently opened offices at Southbank, London.

If that wasn’t enough to keep us busy, we are having bundles of fun with our new show this 22-23 October. We are so excited to be back in Paris and at the newly built Paris Convention Centre in Porte de Versailles. We are honoured to welcome the French Minister of Labour - Muriel Pénicaud, and to our cause, she is the former CHRO of Groupe Danone and Dassault Systèmes.

UNLEASH World 2019 will take place in the heart of the city just 15 minutes from the Eiffel Tower. It is the largest multi-purpose congress centre now in Europe and taking UNLEASH to the next level as we enter a new decade.  

Which is why UNLEASH has announced its largest-ever keynote programme as follows:

We are over the moon to have David Green, back as our MC of the Main Stage, this year. He plays host to an enviable line-up. And with him as the world’s leading authority on data, and HR analytics, he will be on his toes with this year’s numbers.

+250 speakers across 18 other stages have been specially curated and drawn together to bring unique insights for leaders in HR and business across the main challenges facing business today:

  • Globalisation and its impact on culture
  • The changing role of leadership
  • Driving positive value across industry and society
  • Adopting HR Technology to unlock potential
  • Identity, belonging and purpose

This is our most significant programme yet focusing on people, profit, purpose and planet. We’ve been working hard to ensure that in this age of increasing accountability, we’re able to deliver tangible value and inspiration in equal measure.

For our return to Paris, we’re delighted to have the support of the French Government. And perhaps, more importantly, we’ve drawn speakers from across the world to represent a global perspective, which is unique to this event.

The cast and crew now in place, we can focus now on more troublemaking activities in showcasing the work revolution on the road to Paris.

See you in Paris!
