HELM Conference showcases interdisciplinary approaches to human-centred organizational development.

We welcome progressive leaders who blur the borders of HR, design, change management, intrapreneurship, and communications. As we push the bar of technological innovation, collaboration among these culturally-aware perspectives is paramount. Together, we can create a sustainable and inclusive practice for the future – one made by and comprised of people.
