All delegates will have free access to the museum after the event.

09:45     Welcome
09:50     Employee Benefits: “A cabinet of curiosities…
So what did the March Budget statement mean for employee benefits and the world of workplace savings? Steve will place a number of new exhibits on display – some for the first time. Topics covered will include the Pensions Dashboard, Salary Sacrifice, and the introduction of the Lifetime ISA. Progress on Tax Free Childcare/ Childcare Vouchers will also feature.

                               Speaker: Steve Herbert, Jelf Employee Benefits

10:20     Financial Education: “Are we all Millennials now?
Business journals, blogs, and websites contain a wealth of information and opinions about how the attitudes of Millennials, Generation X, and Baby Boomers all differ significantly. But what does this really mean for HR in terms of benefits? With pressure to provide work life balance, engagement and wellness are these generations really in need of different attention and if so how can you help them? Jo Thresher, an expert on workplace financial education solutions, will provide the answers.

                               Speaker: Jo Thresher, Jelf Employee Benefits

11:25     Employment Law: “The Interactive Museum Experience
Managing sickness, especially disability, presents many challenges. However the courts have never been unsympathetic to the well-intentioned employer. In his talk Tim will review recent sickness and discrimination cases (including the Starbucks case). Tim will also look at new tools available from ACAS, gender pay gap reporting, failed disciplinary actions and other items that catch his eye.

                               Speaker: Tim Randles, Penningtons Manches LLP

11:55     Motivation: “Resilience and motivation
Charlie is an adventurer. He has cycled 43,000 miles through 60 countries (in a journey lasting four and a half years), completed a 1,000 mile walk across the Gobi desert, and paddled a dugout canoe down a crocodile infested river in the Congo. These feats and others have taught him true resilience, and he now shares his motivational thoughts through presentations and writing. This is sure to be an engaging and uplifting end to our event.

Speaker: Charlie Walker, Adventurer, Speaker and Writer
