The plenary sessions will feature CEOs and chief HR officers from global and local organizations that are considered to be disrupting their respective industries. The first session will address the topic “Staying ahead of the curve amidst global disruption.”


Apart from Prentice, other speakers in the initial session are: Lisa Gokongwei-Cheng, President and COO, Summit Publishing Group; Rogelio Singson, CEO of Light Rail Manila Corporation; and Edwin Bautista, president and CEO, Union Bank of the Philippines.

Meanwhile, the concurrent sessions will offer a variety of topics that will focus on three themes: Core HR – visceral and direct-to-the point perspectives on the HR imperatives; Future of work – blowing the doors wide open to imminent change and endless possibilities; and HR Disruption – harnessing potent tools in effective people management in the digital and borderless era.
