With the close arrival of the Coral Sea Cable delivering faster, reliable internet the latter part of 2019, PNGHRI’s annual Conference is themed around “Human Resource in the 4th Industrial Revolution” and preparing the HR fraternity for what’s to come. Attendance at this conference will inform the HR fraternity of the Internet of Things (IoT) and Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the future of work as we know it. Affordable internet will transform our economy as it has globally. Come along and be informed, inspired and learn about how HR can participate in leading this transformational change. Whilst there may be many challenges during this change, there are many more opportunities to be gained. Our Keynote Speaker LYN GOODEAR – CEO, Australian Human Resource Institute (AHRI) will be joining us here for the conference as well. The conference will also feature presentation of HR awards, best practice presentations and 2018 Annual General Meeting reports. A change in conference format provides more events to encourage and stimulate collaborations through networking and recognizing those who have achieved success in their HR profession. Of course, who can resist an evening to wind-down and relax amongst new friends.
