Yesterday was one of the biggest dates in the HR calendar – HR Grapevine’s Annual HR & Talent Management Conference.
Sadly, with only so many tickets to the exclusive event available, not everyone can attend. So, for those unfortunate many, here are a collection of tweets – our hashtag, ‘#HRGV2017’, from the day made it onto the social media platform’s trending page – from the occasion.
Many facts, lessons, questions and soundbites were posted.

2nd best quote of the day. It's ok to be naked in life #HRGV2017— Carol Pounder (@Sc4rlettoh) March 16, 2017
We even shared some of the questions posed on Twitter. So, would you return to work?

But it wasn’t all HR. There was time for cocktails.
Oh, and did we mention the donuts?
Once everyone was refreshed, prizes were also given out.
Our speakers, obviously, got everyone hitting Twitter too. Here are just a few of the highlights.
Russell Deathridge, Principal Consultant at Lee Hecht Harrison Penna, let a balloon off on stage (it could have been more than one, he told us backstage) but it is sadly out of shot here.
And we couldn’t send people away empty-handed! Our goodie bag certainly raised a few eyebrows…
See you next year!
