“The Hewett Recruitment HR Conference is the must go-to event in my calendar.  The speakers are always excellent, informative and enlightening.  It's also a great event to catch up and network with fellow colleagues from around the region, to hear what they are doing and to swap ideas.  I look forward to seeing everyone again in November!”- Karen Fox, Employee Services Director at Mainstay Residential
