If I knew Then What I Know Now – Reflections of HR Directors

Wednesday 2 February 2022

12.30pm – 1:00pm AEDT


The transition to HR Director is often difficult, complex, and sometimes traumatic. The quality of the experience may depend on the understanding that other Board directors have of the HR role and how it can contribute to business success. Professor David Clutterbuck asked HRDs across the globe their views on this question: What do you know now that you would have benefitted from knowing before you became an HRD?

Their answers covered these topics:

  • What it means to be a director and to think like a director
  • Breadth of responsibility and knowledge of the business overall
  • Roles relating to other directors
  • How HR directors add value
  • Educating the organisation
  • Politics
  • Connectedness
  • Doing less to achieve more
  • Coaching and coaching culture
  • Work-life balance

Presented in partnership with AHRI

  • Professor David Clutterbuck
  • Melissa Richardson: Managing Director, Art of Mentoring

All registered attendees will receive a copy of the webinar recording following the event.



A guide to unleashing the hidden value in your organisation through high impact strategic mentoring programs.

Most human beings and organisations have one thing in common – they both want to do better. But it’s hard for one to achieve without the other. When you can harness both you can achieve great things.

Unfortunately, most organisational structures are hierarchical, which may aid efficiency but not necessarily “real” human interaction.

Solving the human equation is the cornerstone of great culture and the larger and more diverse the workforce, the more challenging it becomes, even before we factor in things like location, technology and pay rates.

Well designed and managed mentoring programs can have a dramatic impact on workplace culture and people engagement. A strategic mentoring program transcends hierarchy, creating relationships and interactions to build individual and hence organisational value.

In this guide we present you with proven practical insights on how to design, build, implement and automate a high influence mentoring program and create your own ripple effect.
