We advocate sharing and learning with Peers in a confidential environment. An opportunity to hear new ideas, discuss old ones and enjoy robust debate with a handful of senior HR leaders. You tell us what the important topics are. Our objective is for you take away at least one new perspective that enables you to make progress on an important subject.
We run a few of these a year. It does require a time commitment and it does mean spending money but the investment can payback many times over. We offer you access to credible respected experts who stimulate a discussion with you and your peers. No-one is allowed to sell you things or use more than a handful of slides. This is ‘pure networking’, sharing and learning whilst broadening your external network.
Experienced HR Leaders and specialists, namely HRDs, Heads of HR, HR Business Partners for a significant business unit and COE experts in the topic under discussion. Ultimately it will be both the HR function which benefits as ideas and practice are translated into action and the participant who adds to their personal and professional network.
Time to explore a hot or emerging topic, as identified by our networkers as a key business / people priority. An opportunity to be stimulated and provoked by genuine thought leaders in their field such as Adrian Furnham, David Clutterbuck, Peter Cheese, David McLeod and Wendy Hirsh. Sharing of profound opinions, ideas and perspectives with your peers in an intimate and informal setting. The space and safety for high-quality think-time. The means to develop new professional relationships and a proven network which can help you a solve a particular problem in your company or when you are considering a new role.
Our 24 hour events (4.00pm start on day 1 and 3.00pm finish on day 2) include an informal dinner together deliberately designed to add a social connection to the debate and exchange. Our single day events run from 9:30am until 4:30pm and include lunch.
Participants limited to no more than 20 to enable quality dialogue, lightly facilitated by Oxen Park who encourage the participants to shape the event themselves. The diversity of HR leaders who do attend by definition opens up new possibilities for all. Our meetings usually hosted by a participant.
We offer 4.
Simply put we set a goal that every participant takes away at least one actionable idea that open up new ground for their HR function and the business.
We enable deeper insight into a specific topic, usually framed by the very latest approaches and thinking.
The beginning of new professional relationships with practitioners from very different organisations and an extended network.
Finally, an enjoyable and stimulating experience!

“At least one or two similar networking invitations arrive in my inbox each day so it’s really difficult to differentiate between them. The reason why I started going to Oxen Park meetings was due to a personal recommendation from a colleague – and this is really reflected in the meetings. People who are attending know each other, the network is of a size that allows the Oxen Park team to know many of their members, and you get the opportunity to gain genuine insight from your peers. The Oxen Park leaders have listened to their members on the subjects they would like covered – the meetings are truly driven by the network members”
HR Director, Grosvenor Casinos, Rank Group
“I arrived towards the end of the first session. The atmosphere struck me immediately as open, warm, safe and friendly. This built as we broke for a drink, another session and dinner. The next day collaborative interactions were sparking for me and for others. A network event that was a real network.”
Director, Ashridge Strategic Management Centre
