Chief HR Officers' Network Lunch: Guiding Talent from Mid-Career to Senior Leadership

Michael Skapinker, FT Contributing Editor and Columnist and Executive Editor of the FT | IE Corporate Learning Alliance will host a panel discussion with Pilita Clark, FT Associate Editor and Business Columnist, Candice Cross, Group Head of Diversity and Inclusion Culture, BT and Anton Fishman, Organisational Consultant and Managing Partner, Fishman & Partners. 

The business world is experiencing radical demographic change in the workforce. Nowhere is this more striking than the emergence of multigenerational teams, as Gen Z embark on first jobs and baby boomers successfully adapt to evolving working cultures. HR leaders, like other senior executives, now need to rethink their assumptions about optimal team balance, experience, technology and career expectations.  How can they identify the skill gaps within middle management and what can they do to help this diverse group within the organisation achieve the next step up the corporate ladder?
Michael Skapinker will host a panel discussion where he will debate this issue with leading experts providing practical guidance on what approach employers can take to develop that middle segment of their workforce.

Beyond Brexit: The Impact on Business with Jacob Rees-Mogg

Conservative MP for North East Somerset in conversation with George Parker, FT Political Editor. 

On the eve of a crucial European Council meeting in Brussels, the FT125 presents "Beyond Brexit with Jacob Rees-Mogg", a chance to hear from one of the most influential figures in Britain's debate on Europe. While Theresa May is negotiating Britain's future relationship with the EU in Brussels, she will be looking over her shoulder at the likely reaction of Mr Rees-Mogg, the head of the European Research Group, which counts over 60 Tory MPs among its supporters.

The prime minister is caught between two powerful Tory factions as she navigates the final phase of Brexit talks, with pro-Europeans urging her to adopt a soft Brexit and Eurosceptics urging her to make a clean break with the EU. Mr Rees-Mogg's vision of Britain after Brexit - including the future for the City of London - is always provocative and never dull: Theresa May takes the man at the centre of "Moggmania" very seriously indeed.
