Hello PPMA Friends

The PPMA Peer into the Future Programme reflects our passionate desire to stretch and develop HR & OD professionals and we’re looking for current or aspiring HR & OD professionals to join our next cohort which will be starting next February.

Our organisations need future oriented, forward thinking professionals – those who can both think outside the box and especially don’t see a box at all. In this way we see HR & OD people as business leaders whose expertise happens to be in workforce related matters and enables business to innovate and transform.

Peer into the Future provides participants with an opportunity to take time out from day to day business to reflect on the key business and workforce issues of the day; and share, learn and develop with colleagues. Participating will enable them to enhance personal leadership and professional skills as well as extending professional networks.

Delivered in 6 one-day modules, participants are encouraged and expected to take an active role in their learning and sharing experiences with cohort colleagues. All modules will be delivered either virtually or in locations that best suits the needs of the cohort. We will determine the finer details closer to the time reflecting the latest government and local guidance relating to COVID -19.

So if you are a current or aspiring HR & OD professional, operating strategically within your organisation or you are aspiring to operate at Director level, then this programme is for you and you can find out more information and how to apply here or contact [email protected] or Leatham at [email protected]. Places are limited and the closing date for applications is Tuesday 12th January 2021.

Shawnna Gleeson, Deputy Director, HR at Manchester City Council is joint winner of this year’s programme and in the video below she explains what she got out of taking part.

We hope it inspires you and that you will join us in 2021!
