Here’s what peer guests from the 2018 summit had to say about the content and format they enjoyed on the day.
I have to say I found the event very informative and insightful. I thoroughly enjoyed the roundtable discussions – some very creative and innovative reward programmes out there! Everyone was transparent about their programmes – and the positives and negatives of them all!

The peer lead element created an effective forum for discussing the topics and I thought this was the key part in making the day effective….revealed some insights as peers were willing to speak honestly.

The Rewards & Benefits Summit was the first of its kind event in Ireland that brought together total reward, HR and benefits professionals, as well as industry experts and thought leaders to discuss current and future trends in the Irish market and beyond.

 About
The annual Rewards & Benefits Round Table Summit takes place on 19th of November at Croke Park Stadium Dublin and will, once again, provide a platform for the HR profession to enjoy curated, focused meetings where they set the agenda.
Eugene Bortolozzo, CEO, BusinessRiver, the organiser of the event, said ‘the summit is really special because all the content is generated by the peer attendees themselves. This means that everyone who invests time through coming gets tailored content from other peers on pre-agreed subject matter. 

‘Unlike the old conference model, where you have experts talking down to an audience, here you have peers informing and educating each other.’

A major part of the summit is that there are no keynote speakers. Instead, BusinessRiver works with a leading peer who takes on the Role of Summit Leader.

This year the honour falls to Simon Hand, Head of Reward & Recognition, Vodafone.

‘It’s a real pleasure to take on the role of Summit Leader for Ireland’s second annual Reward & Benefits Summit. My role will be to work with fellow Reward & Benefits professionals to identify the key themes for the event. This will enable us to highlight the main challenges and opportunities facing the Reward & Benefits community and agree how best to meet them. These discussions will be fully explored during the interactive round table sessions, which were hugely successful at last year’s event.’

Last year the summit drew practitioners from over 100 large employers in Ireland and was quickly endorsed as valuable new forum for senior HR leaders.

You cannot book into this event so you have to be invited by us, BusinessRiver. We work with our community from the HR Leadership and Management Awards, inviting peers who have similar profiles. Ensuring the right mix is key, hence the invitation only model.
