Events & CPD

CPP regularly host important regional and national events in the field of people management.

The extensive networks of our researchers in both academic and business world enable us to attract high profile events, and our state of the art building and convenient location provide the ideal venue for both large scale conferences and smaller scale conferences and workshops.

In 2016, we are delighted to be hosting two prestigious international and national events: the 28th Annual Conference of the European Association of Evolutionary Political Economy and the UK Forum for Human Resource Development. You will find details of these and other events below.
