Testimonials

quote A very good event. I found the workshop sessions very interesting and the one to one meetings with suppliers were very relevant to my current challenges. It was an excellent venue and the event as a whole was very well organised.
HUMAN RESOURCES DIRECTOR
PROPERTY
quote Profitability have been attending the Working Futures events for the last 5 years. Whilst it has always been well run, it has now evolved into a vital part of our marketing calendar. We have gained access to key decision makers with real needs that has resulted into a number of long term and profitable relationships.
HEAD OF BUSINESS DEVELOPMENT
PROFITABILITY
quote Thanks for all the effort in making yesterday happen. It was a great event and we are confident that we will meet a number of the contacts again and win business. The Boardroom Briefing went well and I have agreed to invite the attendees to join a LinkedIn Group on financial wellbeing
COMMERCIAL DIRECTOR
AHC
quote It’s been really useful to learn from other HR Directors and to meet with relevant companies. Today has pushed my own thinking
HR DIRECTOR
BLAKE MORGAN LLP
quote I thought it was exceptionally well organised. The great thing about the one to one sessions were that they were not hard selling. They spoke to me about information that I can use and take back to the office,which makes it more likely for me to use them. I also think this event had the highest level of delegates and best selection of industries that I’ve ever seen at an event before.
HEAD OF HR
PHARMACEUTICAL & LIFE SCIENCES
quote I felt engaged and have benefited from every session
EUROPEAN HR DIRECTOR
PROFESSIONAL SERVICES
quote Leaving the event pondering and reflecting on points made, especially some very good discussions held on leadership
HR DIRECTOR
GLOBAL LOGISTICS COMPANY
quote I have attended a number of meetings arranged for me by Expedite and I can’t praise them highly enough for a first class experience. I have met innovative suppliers based on my challenges – which were facilitated for me by Expedite. Its safe to say that Expedite have saved us literally 100’s of hours in finding the right companies. I would recommend that you work with Expedite!
HR DIRECTOR
MANUFACTURING INDUSTRY
quote We have had a number of meetings, arranged by Expedite with HR Directors. In each case the individual has had a live project, a budget and time frame attached to resolve it and they want to meet us. We could not ask for better meetings
MANAGING DIRECTOR
SLA RECRUITMENT
quote Expedite took our lengthy brief & swiftly came back with a company we did not know of, yet was an exact match in terms of our requirements. They then organised the meeting and set the scene for both parties. We are now working with the company they put forward
HR DIRECTOR
TECHNOLOGY COMPANY
quote I came here to learn and network, but found my supplier meetings were the most valuable aspect!
VP OF HR GOVERNANCE
FINANCIAL SERVICES
quote I think this was the best event that I’ve attended in the last few years. The meetings and all the speaker sessions I went to were great. I got to meet people that I wouldn’t usually get to meet at other events. The venue was by far the best I’ve ever seen for a networking event.
REWARD DIRECTOR
GLOBAL POWER & UTILITY COMPANY
quote I thought it was very well organised. I found the supplier meetings were second to none. They were so good that I actually found time in the afternoon to add a few more meetings in! Brian Dunn was very good, and I loved the food and venue.
VICE PRESIDENT, HR
INSURANCE
quote I really liked the set up and how well it was organised. I thought Thomson Dunn’s meeting was excellent and I would like to have a follow up meeting with them. I thought the initial setting up of the event prior to the day was great so there were no surprises on the day which ensured I would be going to the most relevant sessions. I also thought the venue was fantastic!
GROUP HR DIRECTOR
MEDIA & ENTERTAINMENT
quote I thought it was a superb Venue. The quality of hotel and the staff was incredible. I loved the fact the event was quite intimate and all the right kinds of delegates were there. The sessions were very engaging and I have learnt a lot that I will definitely be taking back to my team!
CHIEF PEOPLE OFFICER
AEROSPACE
quote Chara Balasubramaniam from Bayer Healthcare’s session was very good and I also found the 1 to 1 sessions very relevant and even got introduced to a few other providers that were not on my agenda and found that extremely useful.
LEARNING & DEVELOPMENT DIRECTOR
