The Howden Employment Seminars: Your Free Invitation

We are delighted to announce details of the latest educational, engaging, and enjoyable Howden Employment Seminar.

Our events are free to attend, and we really hope that you (and/or an appropriate colleague) can join us as we unearth another morning of key people management issues.

Gina Ellis will Chair the event, and will introduce our panel of expert speakers and topics:

  • An update on all the key Employment Law issues from Matt Jenkin
  • The changing world of Employee Benefits with Steve Herbert
  • The renowned Motivational Speaker, Paul McGee (The SUMO Guy)!

This impressive line-up of important topics, delivered by leading industry figures, requires a prestigious venue.  So we are delighted to announce that our location for this seminar is the world-famous British Museum.  The museum houses a collection of significant exhibits from world history, and delegates will have the chance to see historically important items such as the Rosetta Stone, the Parthenon Marbles, the Sutton Hoo Mask, the Enlightenment Gallery, and (of course) the museum’s huge collection of artefacts and mummies from Ancient Egypt.  

The British Museum is located in central London, and is just a few minutes’ walk from the closest underground stations and bus routes.

Howden Employment Seminar -  Tuesday 26th November 2019  -  Agenda

08:45    Registration, coffee and networking

09:20    Welcome    

09:30    Employee Benefits:  “Reading the Runes”  
2019 has been a year of almost unprecedented political and economic uncertainty for businesses across the United Kingdom.  Steve will consider where this leaves employers and employees, whilst also considering what more organisations can do to improve productivity and assist their workforces in these rather unsettling times.  Topics covered may include pensions, financial education, international employee travel issues, and health & wellbeing.  A pragmatic and (hopefully) entertaining session.  
Speaker:  Steve Herbert, Head of Benefits Strategy, Howden Employee Benefits & Wellbeing

09:55    Employment Law:  “The Age of Enlightenment!”
Are we entering a new era of Employment Law?  Matt will discuss this point as he looks at recently announced changes including the plans to strengthen protections from sexual harassment in the workplace, extending redundancy protection for women and new parents, and the possible reform of family related leave and pay.  Matt will also look at the future of post-termination restrictions following the decision of the Supreme Court in the Tilman case.  An important and necessary session for all delegates.
Speaker:  Matt Jenkin, Employment Partner, Moorcrofts LLP

10:20    Delegate Voting

10:30    Break/ Refreshments/ Networking

11:00    Delegate Voting

11:10    Motivation:  “How to Survive & Thrive in Challenging Times”

We are delighted to welcome internationally renowned motivational speaker Paul McGee – the SUMO Guy – to our seminar programme!  Paul’s first book, the provocatively titled “Shut Up, Move On (SUMO)”, was first published almost 15 years ago and still remains a bestseller that has sold hundreds of thousands of copies across the globe.  His talks are equally popular, combining common sense, compassion, and humour to empower his audience in the battle against the trials of life.  This promises to be a great and fun conclusion to our event.
Speaker:  Paul McGee, The SUMO Guy

11:50    Closing comments/ Prize Draw (the chance to win one of two Luxury Hampers)

12:00    Event concludes

12:05    Access to British Museum Galleries

Due to the number of topics to be covered, the level of detail may vary.  Speakers will focus on the subject areas that are most topical and relevant at the time of the seminar.
