Going it alone as an Independent Director

GBRThe Great British Workforce Revolution conference is a must-attend event for Independent Directors, value-added Business Angels and cashed-out entrepreneurs who are interested in finding out how to prosper in the ever-evolving Independent Executive recruitment landscape.

GBR banner1
In light of the recent discovery that nearly half of the UK working population are not full-time employees - thus being left almost entirely to find their own work and their own contracts - this Conference aims to understand, explore and seek out the opportunities available to this increasingly popular dynamic of independent working.

The Great British Workforce Revolution conference is the only live event in the UK focused on bringing hundreds of senior level executives together in one day and in one place, alongside the key influencers in the executive recruitment industry. Come along to hear from industry experts, gain educational insight, participate in exciting debates, enjoy quality networking and hear from some excellent keynote speakers.

This year's event will be taking place on 3rd June at Dexter House, No 2 Royal Mint Court, Tower Hill, London, EC3N 4QN.

Take a look around our event website, and please do get in touch if you would like to find out more about the 2015 Workforce Revolution, or visit our registration page to BOOK YOUR TICKET TODAY!
