Insights stages and Evidence Lab Live
Your free learning opportunity. This year there are three Insights stages, plus Evidence Lab Live — New for 2023!

With over 40 free sessions available, you’ll were sure to find content relevant for you.
Take a little ‘me’ time for yourself. We know that attending shows can be rewarding in so many ways, but they can also be very busy, and let’s face it, exhausting.
The relaxation area in the Refresh and Reflect Café gave you a chance to slow down and reflect. Why not have a massage? Join a mindfulness session? Or maybe a breathing workshop to help you centre yourself again? Come along… and relax!
Ethics at ACE
The subject of ethics across the People Profession has always been at the forefront of everything we do. With the ever changing world of work, new challenges and new opportunities, the subject of ethics has never been more important. Whether this is through the prism of Artificial Intelligence to legal policies and processes.
This feature was an opportunity for all attendees to join the conversation and explore the subject in a number of different ways, from workshops and panel discussions to 'mock' tribunals
This features created a space for people professionals to come together and benefit from the experience of others, and ask the questions you’ve always wanted to, but never quite had the right person or context to ask.
Legal drop-in clinic
Back by popular demand, CIPD HR-Inform, ran their free legal drop-in clinic. Take advantage of their legal expertise and book a 15 minute meeting with one of their advisors. Discussions could be on employment law matters affecting you personally or your organisation. They can be pre-planned at a time that suits you, or simply drop by and speak with a professional on the day.
One of the key benefits to attending a large scale event is the opportunity to meet and learn from your peers. Therefore, Reconnections hosted, 30-minute speed networking events on each of the two days. Whether it was your first time attending the event or you wanted to discuss different topics, this was a great opportunity to extend your network.
