Speaking at National HR Conference on Social #HR organized by @Sapphire_XLRI at @XLRIOnline

It's always a pleasure to go back to one's alma mater - and this weekend I would be looking forward to speaking at the 7th National HR Conference organized by SAPPHIRE - the HR Club of XLRI, Jamshedpur.

I would be speaking on the topic “Relevance of Technology in Driving Cultural Change” on 11th of January, 2015 at 09:30 am. As the agenda says: "The models for Change Management in organizations are continuously evolving and improving. The HR function is considered the custodian and bringer of change. With the evolution of technology, the way change is executed and communicated in an organization has undergone a paradigm shift, as the knowledge of any change now percolates through the organization much quicker through both formal and informal networks. Here we talk about how technology can aid us bring about more effective change management and how it should be used to best control it."

The conference is extra special, because in January 1998, I was a member of SAPPHIRE and was part of the organizing committee of the 1st National HR Conference :) 

Will be posting insights from the conference on Twitter. You can follow me here
