I am an HR Professional and we have corporate head office in Europe along with offices in other abroad countries.
An annual global conference for all our offices is going to take place in India and we have to do all the arrangements and everything.
I have never been a member of such kind of global meeting in any company.
Seniors, I am really very confused and excited over this.
Can anybody suggest me to how to maximize the role of HR in this and how to represent my HR Domain at this platform. Also, I need to give one presentation also.
Kindly reply with your experience and suggestions.

First of all congratulations on getting such a wonderful opportunity to expand your role, demonstrate a number of leadership traits and at the same gain an invaluable experience. Since you have not specified at what level you work or the kind of responsibilities that you can take on, I shall share a broad overview of what would possibly need to be done to ensure a successful meet.

- prepare a broad list of activities that are essential to smoothly organize the event. eg. theme of meet, venue, dates, travel arrangements, accommodation, invitations to participants, cultural activities, sight seeing etc

- form the teams and the leaders who could take charge of one or more of the above activities

- ensure each of these teams prepares their checklists

- have timelines and responsibilities penciled into the checklists

- call for initial meeting with all concerned and the HR Head should give a proper briefing on the event, the expectations from the teams, the budget estimates etc.

- do not forget to have a post conference check list

The presentation that you have to give will depend on the theme of the meet and / or the topic given by the organizers so it is not possible to give any suggestions on that at this stage.

This a wonderful opportunity but there will also be a good bit of chaos, confusion, irritation, ego clashes, stupid errors etc but the learning will be invaluable.

Best Wishes

As regards your presentation, as already has been pointed out it depends on the topic of the conference. You will come to know of it soon. Please utilize this rare opportunity to the best of your ability and to the maximum.
