Sharing examples of her work at Ofcom, Aviva and House of Fraser, Kerri-Ann describes how starting with organisational purpose provided powerful learning that informed business and people strategy, underpinning the connections between commercial success and societal impact.
With the example of child safety online, Kerri-Ann describes how a diverse and inclusive group enables pioneering work and provides a brilliant reference to Bletchley Park during WWII in describing the benefits.
Kerri-Ann advocates that every HR professional must have an opinion, use their agency to influence business and change, and to help connect with this, your own purpose and power, recommends that you ask yourself: Why did I join this profession?

- Starting with Purpose – an example from Aviva
- ESG and People Strategy
- HR having a business opinion
- Future forward thinking, Ofcom and the example of child safety online
