Event Sponsor

Come join the HRPA Guelph & District Chapter for an evening of networking, learning, and engagement!

Our experienced HR practitioner guests will serve as mentor “table hosts”. They will each remain at their assigned table for the evening answering questions and sharing tips or tricks geared toward the ultimate goal of landing that job you really want.

Attendees will be randomly assigned to a table to begin the first round of group networking and then will rotate amongst the tables at set intervals. 

Here is our exciting line up of  'table hosts" with their focus topic indicated.

Emma Marriott, Founder and Principal Consultant, Iris  (Interviews)
