Sandy Begbie who chairs the Scottish HR Leadership Group that is organising the event, said: “There has never been anything of this magnitude held in Scotland before, and it is incredibly exciting to be able to offer something so unique which will help guide views in this country.”

Mr Begbie, who in September was named chief executive of Scottish Financial Enterprise, added: “Through this experience, we are giving our attendees access to people that they would otherwise never have had a chance to interact with. When you bring such a high calibre of speakers on board, they will inevitably polarise opinions. Some may agree with their points, but some will not. However, this is what we need to do to challenge views and start a meaningful conversation."

The Scottish Human Resources Leadership Group was established by Scottish executive search company FWB Park Brown.
