As in previous years, Strategic HCM is the social media partner for the event, and I've got tickets for a couple of readers (senior, strategic, in-house HR practitioners) to go along with me.  If you want to do that, I'll need you to post here on one of the sessions from the conference.  Up for it? - get in touch!

Otherwise, use the code HCM/DC for a 15% discount on the full fee.
