Hello PPMA members and friends

We’re delighted to announce the launch of PPMA Rising Stars 2018. We’re looking for future HR & OD leaders to take to the stage and showcase how and why they believe they can inspire the future generation of HR & OD professionals across public services with their ideas at the Annual PPMA Conference in 2018.

To be in with a chance of winning this prestigious competition and presenting at the PPMA Annual Conference, we would like you to research and write a business case in fewer than 2,500 words presenting an idea around innovation through people in the delivery of HR/OD services across public services – an idea which generates curiosity – demonstrates passion in your profession – and brings benefit to the end user of the service. We are opening the door and look forward to seeing who steps through and what thought provoking ideas you have to share.

The competition is open to entrants from across the entire public service landscape. Whilst you don’t need to be a PPMA member, we’re confident you would want to join our great network of professionals once you participate in Rising Stars.

Selected entrants will be invited to Leeds for two days of personal coaching, communication and media skills workshops plus plenty of time to get to know your fellow HR & OD Professionals. You will also have the opportunity to present your project to our panel of judges. The three individuals with the highest scores will then be invited to attend the Annual PPMA Conference in April 2018 and the winner announced at our Gala Awards evening on the first night of conference.
