Updates Highlight Reel All you need to know about the HRO Today Forums.   Who says Summer is quiet in Europe? This is certainly not the case on the run up to the final HRO Today Forum of 2013 to be held November 12-14th in London. Practitioner registrations are already rolling in (remember as a HRO Today Global reader you get a discount on attendance—£599 for the entire Forum or £299 for individual days—use HROTG13 and click apply code to get the discount from £999), and I am overwhelmed by the number of providers, advisors, and tech firms that are interesting in sponsoring the event.
