How is the rise of the gig economy, the ageing workforce and the increasing demand for flexible working affecting how organisations attract, recruit and develop their staff?
On October 11th and 12th, the Association for Business Psychology is holding it’s annual conference. Aimed at providing people keen to understand more about how to apply good science and psychology to business, the conference is packed with vetted and selected content. We have over 70 applications to speak and feature those who provide the best evidence, research and practical applications to their work. Unlike many other conferences, ours is not for profit: content is for the benefit of those attending. Sales led content is excluded. We have a maximum number of 200 delegates to allow for meaningful networking and connections.

No ABP conference is complete without the opportunity to develop a skillset. Each year, the highest level of feedback we receive is the mix of content: round table discussions, more formal speaking slots and workshops. The mixture allows you to build up not only your network, but your skills and knowledge. Workshops are interactive, longer sessions to allow you time to develop your skill and understanding. Workshops are free to attend with your conference ticket.

Last year over 90% of people who attended the conference felt it was excellent, represented great value for money and would recommend it to friends. It is the one event each year, where you can truly engage with up to date, relevant and evidence based work enabling you to tick a lot of boxes whilst having a lot of fun. We look forward to seeing you there!
