International Human Resource Management PgDip/MSc: Events and lectures
HRM seminar series
Leading HRM managers, recruitment specialists and talent development consultants join Kingston Business School's own renowned academics for the HRM seminar series.
In these you will learn directly from practitioners in the field about key topics such as employee engagement, job market trends and best practice in leading, managing and developing people nationally and internationally. It's a great opportunity to learn, ask questions and build your professional network.
Our successful Strategy into Practice seminar series has been running for many years. It is designed to give you the opportunity to gain experience of strategy within major enterprises. You will hear first-hand accounts, from top managers, on the management of complex international organisations, promoting innovation and creativity, instituting cultural change and managing growth.
Previous speakers have included Lord Hastings (KPMG, BT and UNICEF), Karen Hamilton (Unilever), and Greg Dyke (former Director General of the BBC).
You will have the opportunity to ask questions and to network after each session with academic staff and local business leaders. These seminars are open to external attendees, alumni and students.
At Kingston Business School we are committed to helping students, staff and alumni, as well as external organisations in the region, to develop their entrepreneurial potential. To achieve this we run a series of Entrepreneurship Experience seminars, bringing high-profile guest speakers in to present on their personal experiences. We help people to improve their skills and learn how to develop opportunities into viable projects and enterprises.

If you would like to gain a more in-depth knowledge of an aspect of business or law practice through our on-going research at the Business School and Law School, then one of our research seminars might help you. These events are taken by a speaker from one of the schools and aim to share our knowledge, discoveries, research best practice and new research methods.
