HR Table Talks provide a safe space for members of the HRO Today Association to discuss challenging issues. These are not slide-driven webinars, they are virtual conversations, connecting like-minded individuals in similar circumstances for advice and support.

HR Table Talks are a unique networking and learning opportunity for members of the HRO Today Association.

  • Attendance is limited to create a feeling of closeness and security.
  • Participants can see and communicate directly with other members
  • Sessions are not recorded so participants can be completely open and honest.
  • There are no slides, and the conversation is 100% member driven.

A member facilitator helps guide the conversation, adding their expertise and perspective.

Members come away from HR Table Talks with insights they cannot get anywhere else – only from those who are experiencing the same circumstances and challenges, right now.
