We had some fantastic Brexit themed events over the last 2 weeks. Record turn out (over 100 at each event), with plenty of HR conversations, connections and of course cocktails. Don’t be fooled by cheap imitations of HR events that sound similar.

The fantastic team at Newland Chase gave us all a great overview around Brexit and we’ve had some great feedback from the group. One member said:

I just wanted to extend the thanks of myself and my team for the event and insight on Monday, we have been booking on to many webinars and events and this was the first that had plenty of insight we hadn’t seen/already known elsewhere, so very useful!

We also had a record number of business clothes donation at our clothes drive at the event for our partner charities ‘Dress for Success’ & ‘Suited and Booted’ and it’s always nice to be able to give back at our events.

We are looking forward to our next event on 6th March 2019.


We’ve got plenty more planned for 2019 and we’re also starting our events later this year at 6.00pm rather than 5.30pm - as who likes rushing right?!?

Founded and run by Andy Selway MCIPD (Owner of ‘Selway Search HR’ and former HR professional), Corporate & Cocktails was set up in 2011 to provide an alternative to stuffy HR networking events in London and we have been growing and shaping the way ever since.

We’re here to inform, challenge, discuss and provide insight across HR, Talent, Culture and Technology, via our fun and interactive HR events, seminars, networking and HR community.

So we encourage everyone to come along to our HR events, mix with peers, learn from industry leader talks, share ideas, skills and make connections over drinks and great conversation. Not a member and want to come to our FREE events, click the join us tab in the main menu bar.

Pigeonholing candidates and then trying to catch 'the one' - Seriously though, how essential is 'sector experience' in HR recruitment?

Pigeonholing candidates and then trying to catch 'the one' - Seriously though, how essential is 'sector experience' in HR recruitment?

In a time of economic uncertainty and when budgets are tighter than ever, it is clear that many organisations look to ‘play it safe’ when it comes to hiring new talent. But why is ‘sector experience’ still seen as one of the most important over- arching requirements when it comes to selecting talent? 

HR Innovation does happen in isolation

The HR profession is changing at a speed that is unprecedented in corporate history. The benefits that HR can bring to a business are undisputed, but the function has often been seen as an administrative function rather than a strategic one.
