9th April 2018 | Shangri-La Hotel, Singapore


The HR Life Sciences & Healthcare Strategy Meeting gathers HR leaders and senior executives across Asia Pacific from the leading Pharma, Biotech, CRO, CDMO, Academic/Research Institutions, Medical Device & Healthcare organizations who aim to profitably develop HR business acumen, effectively reshape its function, and successfully transform leadership within their organization to becoming a world class employer in the industry.

Thought leaders who will benefit from attending include CxOs, EVPs, SVPs, VPs, Executive Directors, Directors and Global Heads responsible for:

Talent Acquisition & Management

Benefits and Rewards

Leadership Development

Workforce Diversity

Succession Planning

HR Compliance

Compensation & Payroll

Employment Law

Unlike other Asia Pacific HR conferences, the unique format of our strategy meeting gives way for more interactive and insightful discussions among like-minded c-level executives in a casual setting. On top of the networking opportunities that you get from HR summits, Proventa International prepares relevant, tailor-fit HR trends and topics that address the needs of your company or organization. Whether it's talent acquisition, leadership and performance management or succession planning, our team gives you the freedom to choose which track you want to participate in and which business leaders you want to meet. Our executive roundtable discussions are intimate and pre-screened, allowing you to dive deep into a specific HR issue or topic, ask important questions and come up with actionable solutions to challenges.

Another key feature that makes us different from HR strategy conferences is our one-to-one meetings. Pre-qualified and personalized for your organization's challenges, our director-level one-to-one meetings provide an opportunity to get research-based methodologies from leading HR companies and HR management experts from Asia, Europe and United States to help you reach short and long-term goals. Need strategies on workplace culture and employee engagement? Just tell us who you want to meet so we can schedule your pre-arranged business meeting.

The HR Life Sciences and Healthcare Strategy Meeting is happening on April 9 at Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore. Download the full agenda here.
