The Event

Attracting, developing, engaging and retaining great people is essential to a business’ success.

In a world where the ‘job for life’ no longer resonates, how can leaders create a great working environment that sets them apart from the competition and draws in the talent?

The Arena Summer Event will explore the demands and expectations of today’s employees, and how leaders can harness these to create a stand-out, appealing people culture.

There will also be an industry insight session that will consider ‘Market Confidence’, including the key challenges and opportunities ahead for operators and suppliers, and the impact of the soft drinks levy.

The programme of thought-provoking speakers and panel discussion features:

Hazel Detsiny, Managing Director, Unilever Food Solutions – when others are looking to attract great people, Hazel considers how strong and inclusive leadership and communication can help retain talent, especially women

 

Stephanie Hamilton, Head of People & Culture, ISS UK & Ireland – purpose and progression is high on the agenda of up-and-coming talent. Stephanie discusses the benefits of a clear development strategy for employees and employers alike

 

Chris Hill, Chief Executive, New World Trading Company – as working practices become more flexible and workforces potentially more dispersed, Chris will share his approach to uniting a team of engaged people with a sense of belonging and the impact this has had on his business

 

Jonathan Raggett, Managing Director, Red Carnation Hotels – with the workplace increasingly an extension of people’s values and beliefs, Jonathan will look at how to attract the best talent and the role culture plays in engaging employees

 

Tevin Tobun, Managing Director, Gate Ventures – hospitality may not have been the obvious choice for this graduate in medicine, but the entrepreneur has carved a successful career. Tevin will give an insight into where he is now, how he got there, and how he’s inspiring young people to join our progressive industry

 

London’s Stationers’ Hall, one of the most sought-after venues in the City, provides the unique new location for the Arena Summer Event. Attendees will have plenty to discuss with fellow hospitality colleagues throughout the day, as they enjoy the excellent food, drink and hospitality of Chester Boyd, the Hall’s resident caterers, during the drinks reception and over lunch.

Join us at the impressive Stationers’ Hall, London, for the Arena Summer Event 2018.

Steeped in history, Stationers’ Hall is a Grade 1 listed building close to St Paul's Cathedral. It is one of the few ancient Livery Halls remaining in the City of London. Completed in 1673 after the Great Fire of London, the Hall's suite of imposing, inter-linking rooms makes it one of the most sought-after venues in the City and a unique new location for an Arena event.

The carefully-planned programme of thought-provoking speakers, a panel discussion, and opportunities to interact with fellow industry professionals will allow guests to enjoy the splendour the venue has to offer.

They will take in the impressive ambience of the Livery Hall created by the gleaming oak flooring and carved oak panelling originating from the 1600s, together with huge stained-glass windows. The Court Room that overlooks and accesses the secluded garden via the balcony and wrought iron staircase will also provide the ideal location for our drinks reception.

Attendees will enjoy the excellent food, drink and hospitality of Chester Boyd, the Hall’s resident caterers. Part of CH&Co, Chester Boyd sources local produce to create exceptional dishes that allow the quality of the ingredients to shine and deliver memorable culinary experiences that complement and enhance the unique surroundings.
